    This will be the first time I go to Magic Kingdom with my 3 mos old son! I'm extremely excited and nervous at the same time!! Need advice what should and shouldn't I bring. What can we do to make this trip as easy but enjoyable as possible?

    Hi Krystle, 

    My last child was two months old when she first visited Walt Disney World so I understand how you feel. All of the theme parks have Baby Care Centers, and I would encourage you to use them.  These centers will have rocking chairs, changing tables, and a microwave to warm up formula.  They also have complementary Carnation Baby formula as well.  I have used all of these centers, and my favorite one was in Animal Kingdom. These are usually quiet areas to nurse, feed, or change your baby.  I would make sure you have an umbrella stroller that reclines and has a canopy.  This way when your son wants to take a nap, he is out of the sun and you can stroll around and enjoy the parks too.  Of course you will bring a diaper bag or backpack with wipes, diapers, bottles and formula if you need them, a change of clothes, and blanket for him.  Take it slow and go by his schedule.  If you need some down time, just go back to the resort for a few hours.  His sleep schedule will probably be off a bit so adjust your park time accordingly. For instance, if he is up early, go into the parks early but if he is up all night, just enjoy sleeping in and going later.  Take lots of pictures!  You will look at them quite often.  I know your vacation with your son will be magical, Krystle!
