    My wife and I will be traveling with our 6 month old infant. Is there anything at the parks that the baby will be able to do? Which park is best suited for infants?

    Hi, Nathan!  You will be surprised at how much you can do with a six month old!  Really, except for rides that have height requirements, your baby will be able to go on many of the attractions and into the shows, and you absolutely will be able to sit with the baby for the parades and fireworks.

    Which park is best suited for infants is kind of an interesting question.  If you are looking for a park which offers the most attractions a baby can do, I'd probably say the Magic Kingdom.  You can take the baby on It's a Small World, Haunted Mansion (none of my kids were afraid of this attraction - ever - but your experience my be different), Dumbo, Aladdin's Magic Carpets, Jungle Cruise, and many others.  One of my favorites when my girls were small was the Tomorrowland Transit Authority - then known as the Wedway People Mover.  It's a great ride that gives you all a chance to cool off and chill out.

    I love EPCOT with babies.  The walk around the lake was always great for nap time, and it allowed me a chance to look in the shops.  We always enjoyed taking our girls to EPCOT when they were small.

    You can also use the child swap option for rides the baby is too small for.  If you and your wife want to both ride things like Splash Mountain or Space Mountain, you just let the cast member know you want to child swap, and you only have to wait in line once.  One of you rides while the other holds the baby, then when the ride is over, you switch.

    I hope you have a wonderful time!
