    Hello! My husband and 9 month old will be traveling to Walt Disney World the 1st week of April 2008. Should I be prepared for a very crowded theme park experience? If so, do you have any tips for navigating large crowds with an infant? Thank you! Renee

    It is a very busy time of year.  April is Spring Break here in the south and many flock to Walt Disney World.  It will be crowded, but take it slow.  Be sure to pick up the park map at the beginning of the day and look it over.  Discover where the Baby Stations are, these are lifesavers, when its so hot, your tired, and the baby is fussy.  It's that moment you ask yourself, the question why????  The Baby Center has rocking chairs, nursing rooms, changing tables, and air conditioning.  A Snugli or a baby sling is also a big help, if you plan to ride any rides.  You and your husband can do the baby swap, if you both want to ride a particular ride.  Just stand in line, this is where the sling is fabulous, as your arms start to get tired.  Once you get to the platform let the Cast Member know you are planning on doing a baby swap.  The Cast Member will have one of you to stand aside, and then do a baby hand off at the exit platform.  It is rather, fun actually.  Heather M.
