This year before Leo was born my family got Disney World Annual Passes and we love them! Well, Bentley and I love them, James is not a crazy obsessive Disney lover like myself. Bentley is slowly but surly turning in to one ( yes I’m a very proud mamma ). After Leo was born I was itching to take him to Disney! Finally after a few weeks we decide to take on the challenge and go to Disney with Leo! Here are some of my tips for you.
Make sure to pack a few extras! Obviously you should have extras in your bag already, but just put one or two more diapers and outfits! Leo peed on me twice so it was a good thing I brought and four outfits instead of my normal two in my diaper bag. Also make sure to pack a small blanket , for when you change your baby so he doesn’t have to lay on the hard changing table.
As my Diaper bag for at the parks I carry a backpack instead of the diaper bag. For me its just easier to carry around seeing I didn’t bring a stroller.
I wore Leo around the parks in a ErgoBaby 360 carrier ( Thanks Ally for letting us borrow it) , so we didn’t have to lug around the stroller and deal with the crowed and rude people walking in front of us. Now Leo was also only 8lbs so it was not a strain on my back, I’m sure as he gets bigger and older we will bring in the stroller, but for now its just as easy to carry him around.
Also I liked him being closer to me so I know no one would touch him.
You want to take breaks and relax in a cooled area or in the shade. Thankfully the day we went wasn’t so hot( actually it was a bit chilly ) so Leo did’t get hot while i was wearing him aorund the parks!
Keep yourself and Baby hydrated
Yes seriously I have to say this one. Obviously you want the baby to stay hydrated even more so if you are going during the summer hot months. Also make sure you’re hydrated as well because trying to take care of a baby and being extremely weak just does not mix.
Baby Care centers
Use them! They are awesome! Every park as them which I will list below where to find them in each park. They have a place where you can change and feed your baby in private if you are a breastfeeding mother and want to be in a more private place or need a quite place so your little one can catch a quick nap. They also have a store near by which holds baby formula, juice, food, and diapers just in case you run out of anything!
Make Kingdom- Between Casey’s corner and The Crystal Place.
Animal Kingdom- In the building to the left of The Tree of Life.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios- Inside Guest Relations
Epcot- Inside the Odyssey Center
Ultimately it was a challenge, but we still had a great day! Just take the day slowly and have fun! I mean you’re at Disney World! If you have any extra tips you think should be known, write them down in the comment box and let me know!
