    Hi! DD will be 8 mo for July trip. We've had many WDW trips (10+ times) but this will be 1st as parents. Bringing carrier (Boba Air). If DD falls asleep in carrier, can I wear her on any rides? Thinking slow movers i.e. Nemo or Small World-NOT Splash.

    Hi, Stacey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question! You’re going to have a wonderful trip to Walt Disney World with your little princess.

    There are lots of attractions your daughter will be able to ride, especially in Magic Kingdom Park. If there’s no minimum height requirement posted at an attraction, she can definitely ride it. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by just how much the whole family will be able to experience together!  
    I’ve been taking my son to the theme parks since he was just a few months old. When he was an infant, I often used a baby carrier like the ERGObaby and would leave him strapped to my chest for slow-moving attractions if the ride vehicle allowed. I enjoyed having my hands free to take pictures and point out characters to him, and it also made entering and exiting the attraction easier. You should be able to do the same with your daughter on many attractions.

    Keep in mind that Guests with children who don’t meet the minimum height requirement may take turns experiencing attractions using the Rider Switch program. It allows an adult to ride while another adult waits with younger children. You then "switch" so the second adult can enjoy the attraction without waiting all over again. The specific procedure can vary depending on the attraction, though, so it’s best to let a Cast Member at the beginning of the queue know you’d like to use Rider Switch and ask what steps you should follow.

    I hope this helps, Stacey, and that you have a wonderfully pixie-dusted vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! Please write back with any other questions you may have as you continue to plan.

    Wishing you magic,
    Courtney
