    Unexpectedly, we'll have a 6 month old during our trip to Disneyworld this summer. I've heard some accommodations can be made about swapping adults going on rides... is this true? Any other good info to know in advance about doing Disney with a baby?

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel, Julie!  I can honestly say from personal experience, that visiting Walt Disney World with an infant is much easier than you might expect!  I took my son on his first Walt Disney World vacation at five-months-old while I was still nursing and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. You heard correctly!  The rider swap option is available for guests that have youngsters in their party that are too small to ride an attraction. Just ask the cast member at the entrance to the attraction for a rider swap, which allows one parent to experience the attraction while the other one waits with the child and then they can "swap" places. The second parent will then be allowed to experience the attraction with little to no wait. With that being said, you will be amazed at just how many attractions your little one will be able to experience with you. I would recommend bringing your own stroller from home so that you have it both inside and outside of the theme parks. Regarding your stroller, I would make sure to bring one that features a canopy and underneath storage basket. Guests are allowed to bring food and non-alcoholic drinks into the theme parks. There are Baby Care Centers located in all four theme parks, which provide guests with a convenient area to feed, change, and nurse little ones. Follow the link that I have provided to learn more. I hope this information helps! Please feel free to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Julie!
    Happy Planning,
