    For breastfeeding mom's who pump while at the park. Is there a place to store pumped milk? Maybe in the child care center? And then I could pick it up at the end of the day?

    Hi Melissa! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!!

    Being a nursing mommy is such a wonderful thing!!! The Baby Care Centers within each theme park are great locations to pump! When you are with your little one, they are also the perfect place to feed, change and nurse your Disney baby!

    While there isn't a location to store the milk in the theme parks, I can make a recommendation that works well. Small lightweight soft sided coolers are perfect for the milk storage bags. Small freezer packs fit well and keep the milk at the appropriate temperature throughout the day. You might also take a few plastic snack or sandwich size storage bags with you. If you find yourself in the theme parks for extended hours, you can fill the bags with ice to keep the milk cool. The quick service locations will provide you with complimentary cups of ice upon request.

    Speaking from experience, I know the pumps can get a bit heavy toting them around throughout the day. You might think about renting a locker while you are in the theme parks. They are keyless and can be used throughout the day. There are a variety of sizes (Small 12" x 10" x 17", Large 15.5" x 13" x 17", and Jumbo (Magic Kingdom and Epcot only) 17" x 22" x 26") so you are sure to find the locker size that will fit your needs. If renting a locker sounds like something you are interested in doing, just know they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. We have never had a challenge finding a locker, but you might want to rent one early in the day just to be sure you get the size you would like.

    Thank you so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
