    Mayra Asked

    hi, I will we traveling to the parks for the first time with my husband and my baby of 4 months old. We want to go to all the rides but i need to know if there´s a place or a qualified person who can helps us with our baby while we take the rides?

    Hi Mayra,

    Thanks for writing.  You will find that several attractions in each of the theme parks can accommodate "lap riding" infants, as they have no height restrictions.  You will be able to bring your baby along with you on many attractions.  While your little one might not remember a spin on Peter Pan's Flight, or The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, I'm guessing s/he will be delighted by the colorful sights and whimsical music.  On several attractions where there is a height restriction or you prefer not to bring your baby, your husband and you can take advantage of "rider swap" (also known as baby or child swap).  This option is available on most of the thrill rides throughout the parks.  Simply let the cast member at the attraction's entrance know you are interested in using rider swap, and you or your husband will given a rider swap pass.  Then, one adult will wait to ride while the other watches your baby.  When the first adult is finished riding, you "swap" places with the baby, and the second adult can ride with little to no wait.

    As for other child care options, the child care providers Kids Nite Out and Fairy Godmothers have babysitters that are able to accompany your family throughout the parks (and serve as a nanny for the day) if you need an extra set of hands on your first trip with an infant.  My family has used both services for in-room babysitting several times, and have been very pleased with the individuals that watched our children.

    Have a magical trip!
