    I am planing a trip to Disneyland with my husband and our baby girl in December. Our daughter will be four months old any tips to make our trip smoother?

    Hi, Desareh!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for your question! I’m glad to hear you’re planning a visit to The Happiest Place on Earth with your daughter. I’m a huge fan of introducing little ones to the magic of Disney early on, so I’ve been taking my son to the theme parks since he was just a few months old. 

    The Baby Care Centers are a great resource for families with babies and toddlers, and there’s one located in each of the theme parks. In addition to providing a convenient place to feed and change your baby, they are fully staffed and offer a variety of amenities that make parents’ lives much easier. There are full-size changing tables, high chairs, a kitchen and a shop with baby food, formula, bottles, pacifiers, diapers, wipes, medicines and other essentials for purchase. Be sure to carry all your must-haves each day, like a change of clothes, diapers, a hat for sun protection and her favorite comfort item, but rest assured that if you forget anything, help isn’t far away!

    There are lots of attractions your family can ride at Disneyland Park, including Dumbo the Flying Elephant, “it’s a small world,” Pirates of the Caribbean, and Jungle Cruise. If it is labeled as being suitable for "any height” or there is not a minimum height requirement posted at an attraction, then your baby may ride. I often used a baby carrier and would even leave him strapped to my chest for the ride if possible, which meant my hands were free to take pictures. He also enjoyed watching the parades and shows like World of Color and Fantasmic! even when he was an infant, so we always had plenty to keep us busy in the parks.

    I hope this helps, Desareh, and that you have a wonderfully pixie-dusted vacation to the Disneyland Resort! Please write back with any other questions you may have as you continue to plan.

    Wishing you magic,
    Courtney
