    My wife and I are considering a weeklong vacation to Disney World with our new baby girl. She'll be five (5) months old around the time. What activities would you recommend that would be family friendly? Would it be worth going into the parks with her?

    Hi there, Bryan!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your family is going to make so many magical memories together at the Walt Disney World Resort. The reason we love Disney vacations so much is that they are truly the most family-friendly destinations.

    There are a variety of attractions and entertainment options you can experience with your little one at all four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. We vacationed when my son was an infant multiple times and were still able to experience so much together. Any attraction without a height requirement is safe for the littlest infant Guests to enjoy with you. This includes classics like "it's a small world," Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant as well as newer attractions like Na'vi River Journey and Frozen Ever After to name just a few. If you and your wife want to enjoy thrills that your daughter is not quite ready for, you can take advantage of the amazing Rider Switch Service to take turns riding these attractions without the second parent having to wait in the standby queue. My husband and I loved using this service while my son was taking naps in his stroller!

    In each of the four theme parks, Baby Care Centers are available if you need a semi-private space to feed or change little ones. Here you can also warm bottles and purchase any essentials you may have forgotten like diapers, wipes, or pacifiers.

    One of my favorite tips is to bring noise-cancelling baby headphones for your daughter. We used these on my son in the evenings when he fell asleep in the parks so we could still enjoy fireworks and nighttime spectaculars. He slept "like a baby" completely undisturbed while wearing these!

    I hope this helps, and have a Fantasmic trip!
