Mom with infant

    I’d like to wear 4month old in baby carrier for rides. When rides state they have no height requirement & all ages will it be ok to wear baby in carrier on most of the rides? Any ride restrictions with baby in baby carrier & will they need FastPass

    Hey Katherine!

    A warm welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. From one baby-wearing mom to another, I am so happy you have brought us this great question.

    My baby’s first Walt Disney World Resort vacation was at the age of four months. I was incredibly surprised by the great amount of any height rides and attractions available at Walt Disney World Resort!

    During that vacation, I chose to baby-wear the majority of the time. Baby-wearing makes traveling with an infant so much easier! I was able to keep my baby in her carrier on most attractions. As a safety precaution, I found that on any attraction that had a lap bar or waist bar I was asked to flip my baby to be forward-facing. I did not have to remove my carrier on any attraction. What I would do was sit in the vehicle, unlatch my carrier and forward-face her on my lap — all while still keeping my carrier’s waistband latched. This would allow me to quickly close my carrier's upper latch when the lap bar had lifted or while exiting the ride vehicle. Examples of these types of attractions are: Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid and Haunted Mansion.

    I was never asked to remove her from her carrier or forward-face her on any rides that took place on a “boat” or that had bench-style seating. Examples of these types of attractions are: “it's a small world”, Frozen Ever After and Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Katherine, your little Mouseketeer will not need her/his own FastPass+ entitlements. Your little one can enter FastPass+ queues for which she/he meets height requirements with you -- so awesome!
