    Okk I go to Disney World EVERY year. I've never been there for Christmas my husband told me that this year we could make our year trip for Christmas; but I just found out I'm pregnant. I am due Oct 22. Is there anything I can do with a 2 mth old???

    Josie,

    First and foremost, congratulations!  What a wonderful surprise!

    I have taken a 2 month old to Disney before so I can say from experience that yes, you will definitely be able to do things with your little one along for the ride.  Literally!

    Since you are seasoned Disney travelers then you have the advantage of knowing what to expect on all the rides.  I took my daughter on everything without a height restriction and we had no problems whatsoever.  She slept through almost all of it!

    If this is your first child then you need to know about the switch passes for adult rides - just ask the Cast Member at the ride entrance and they will provide one for you.  One parent waits while the other rides, then you trade off and the other parent can use the switch ticket to go through a special queue and avoid a wait.

    Also be sure to note where the baby care centers are in each park, as you may need them for diaper changes, feedings, or just a cool place to relax.  And don't feel you need to go to them either.  Disney has changing tables in all restrooms including the mens, so it's very easy to navigate the parks with children.

    My last thought would be that you should consider getting your baby's picture taken in a special place in the park, or with a certain character.  It's a great tradition to recreate that photo on every vacation, and a wonderful way to preserve the memory of how your child grows up with Disney, and changes each year.
