Amanda P of the Walt Disney World Moms Panel just gave birth to her third baby, adding a Princess to her two young Princes already at home. Amanda is planning on bringing the new Princess to Walt Disney World in a few months and she knows a lot about how to navigate the theme parks with mini royalty in tow. Here are Amanda’s tips for traveling with little ones:
- Bring your own stroller. Small children tend to be more comfortable in their own, familiar ride.
- If you are traveling to Walt Disney World and use Disney’s Magical Express, you bypass the car rental counters going to and coming from Walt Disney World Resort and the airport.
- Utilize the “rider switch” option when available. This allows members of the family to enjoy attractions with height requirements by waiting in line together and guests take turns waiting with youngsters too small to ride a certain attraction. The adults “swap” with another adult guest from your party to experience the ride without standing in line twice.
- When staying on property, take advantage of your proximity to the parks and head back to your resort for a midday nap or a swim at your resort’s pool.
- Visit the Baby Care Centers located in each park for a quiet, private place to nurse or feed your little ones, change diapers or pick up some baby essentials.
