Top 10 Ways To Survive Disney With A Baby






Traveling with a baby can be stressful but if you plan ahead and pack accordingly you will survive! 





  1. Pack pack pack ALL of the baby must have's that your baby needs on a daily basis. This includes the obvious, binky, blanket, favorite teether, diapers, wipes and of course a change of clothes in case of an accident.

     2.  Be prepared to take an afternoon break each day to keep baby out of the heat and Florida sun.



     3.  Bring sunscreen and a hat for baby to prevent sunburn.



     4.  Bring a comfortable stroller for baby to ride in around the parks, I suggest a stroller with a sun canopy and a stroller that has a lot of storage underneath. I highly recommend renting from Kingdom Strollers.



    5.  Bring a backpack so that when you park your stroller you can have one parent wear the backpack and avoid leaving important items in the stroller unattended.



    6.  Don't try to ride every ride. There are some great rides for young children and babies, check out my top 10 rides for babies and toddlers at Magic Kingdom. Pace yourself and remember it's all about having fun.


   7.  Your baby won't remember meeting the characters or riding the rides, try to just relax and enjoy the moment. Take plenty of pictures and avoid overdoing it.




   8.  Hand sanitizer! Don't forget to bring hand sanitizer. Many first timer's complain that their children picked up a stomach bug at WDW, but then I ask, did you have hand sanitizer? Did you use it after EACH ride? Kids put their hands in their mouth, especially babies! To avoid picking up unwanted germs remember hand washing and hand sanitizer is key.



   9.  Avoid trying to make advanced dining reservations at restaurants that are not 'kid friendly'. The last thing you want to do is have a tired, cranky screaming baby at Le Cellier for example. Make dining reservations at a loud family friendly restaurant such as O'hana, Chef Mickey's or Rain Forest Café.


   10.  Buy a few memorable must have's from DisneyStore.com before your vacation. I really love to see these adorable mouse ears on little one's.
