    I will have a 7 month old when we go to wdw. I was told we can just use the stroller when we go on the monorail or transport buses from the resort to the parks during our stay But do i still need a car seat for our ride to and from the airport?

    Hi Theresa. 7 months old!! So much fun!! Our son was 9 months old during his first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort and to this day, the pictures from that Disney vacation are some of our favorites.

    You do not need a car seat on Disney's Magical Express. The motorcoach is very comfortable and your little one will be fine on your lap. Your stroller will be safely stowed in the luggage compartment while en route and returned to you when you arrive at your Resort hotel.

    While riding on the Walt Disney World Bus Service throughout Walt Disney World Resort, your child will not be allowed to stay in the stroller. For safety reasons, the stroller must be folded and stowed out of the aisle. If you are taking a new stroller with you on vacation, get familiar with it. You don't want to try to figure out how to fold it while you are trying to get on the bus...I speak from experience.

    I also want to encourage you to take a small blanket or towel with you while enjoying Walt Disney World Resort. Use the blanket or towel to cover the stroller seat when it's parked outside while you are enjoying an attraction. The strollers can get hot in the warm Florida sun and that doesn't feel good on your little one's skin.

    Also, get familiar with the locations of the Baby Care Centers. They are located in the 4 theme parks and were game changers for us when we discovered them. When you need them, they are as magical as cotton candy on Main Street U.S.A. They have changing stations, nursing rooms, a feeding area with high chairs, and an assortment of items for purchase in case you find yourself at the theme park missing one of your little one's must have items such as juice, diapers, or wipes.

    I'm so excited for you!! I know your vacation will be magical!! Take oodles of pictures and enjoy every moment!
