    Hi! We've coincidentally had our vacation planned for July 11 before we found out that when WDW would be re-opening. Our daughter will be 8 months old and I was looking forward to using the Baby Care Centers. Do you know if they will be available?

    Welcome BACK, Katie!

    It's so good to see you asking another question to us hEAR at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! And how exciting that this visit Home will be with your mini Minnie!!

    So far I haven't heard anything about Baby Care Centers not being available, so I'm going to take that to mean they'll be around, especially as these locations are on par with other integral guest services. Hopefully I'm right in this assumption, because the Baby Care Centers are not only convenient spaces to change a diaper or take a break, they are the go-to locations in Disney's four theme parks to find all kinds of emergency needs for purchase for the smallest of Mouseketeers all in one place.

    However, because your trip to Mickey's house is the same week that Walt Disney World has planned its return to the magic, it certainly wouldn't hurt to know about your backup options now while you still have time to shop for or order anything you may need:

    ~ You should find a diaper changing station in every restroom. (Men's rooms included!)

    ~ While you're more than welcome to nurse anywhere, if you'd like to be somewhere out of the way (or in the air conditioning!) I'd head for a stage show or an indoor theatre attraction vs a motion ride.

    ~ Each Disney Resort Hotel has at least one shop where sundry and baby items can be purchased. I will say the selection is limited (as in one flavor of medicine, one brand of diaper, etc) but you'll find what you need to get you through most situations.

    ~ If your Princess is as picky as my little guy, you can have the specific items that you need delivered to your Disney Resort Hotel. You're more than welcome to meet the delivery driver of a personal shopping service in the lobby or the front drive of your Disney Resort Hotel. Or, another option is to have supplies shipped and held for you, either in advance of your arrival or even in an emergency online shopping order. There is a small per-package fee to take advantage of the mail package service, but it certainly beats renting a car or calling a cab for a run to the store.

    ~ Baby Care Centers have everything you need to prep a baby meal, like filtered water, bottle warmers and a microwave. And you can ask for complimentary cups of cold water at all Quick Service Dining Locations. But you can also find a microwave, ice, filtered cold water and filtered *hot water (*which comes from the red spigot on the coffee maker) in the Quick Service Dining Location at your Disney Resort Hotel. Pro Tip: Outside food and beverages are allowed in Disney's theme parks, so pack a few double-wall stainless steel water bottles and/or food containers and you can prep/collect what you need for your Disney park day at these dining locations. This way everything will stay hot or cold for hours and your darling daughter can eat wherever!

    I hope this helped to back-up plan for your upcoming Disney Days, Katie, and if you have any more Walt Disney World Resort planning questions, We're All Ears!
