Breastfeeding and public breastfeeding are 100% allowed at Disney World, as per the laws of the state of Florida. However, there are baby care centres that offer quiet, private nursing stations and even some secluded spots around the resort for you to feed your baby.


Apparently, babies under 6 months old cannot wear sunscreen. They are at risk for skin irritation and burning their skin off! On the other hand, sunburns on a child that young can also be pretty serious (I know right!) So instead, try to keep them out of direct sunlight as much as possible (like tiny little vampires) with the stroller cover, light but long-sleeved clothing, hats, avoiding the hottest and brightest times of the day, etc.

Disney with a Baby Tips

  1. Nap Schedule: Stick to your normal routine and nap schedule as much as possible. The good news is the younger your baby, the more likely it is that they will sleep in their carrier/stroller/your arms at the park. If not, you may need to schedule a return to the hotel/”nap spot” for a few hours or so. Trying to make them stay awake for a full day at Disneyland will likely just backfire.
  2. Best “Nap Spots:” Various indoor Disney Springs locations. Enchanting Tales with Belle/Mickey’s PhilharMagic/Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor/Carousel of Progress/WDW Railroad in Magic Kingdom. Play areas at ride exits such as Advanced Training Lab & ImageWorks–The “What If” Labs/Art Galleries or Restaurants around the World Showcase in Epcot. Star Wars Launch Bay at Hollywood Studios. Conservation Station/Wildlife Express Train in Animal Kingdom.
  3. Bring/Rent a Stroller: Trust me, you do not want to try carrying your child around the parks all day. Stroller rentals are only $15/day for a single stroller or $31/day for a double stroller (rentals for multiple days are cheaper). Or, you can bring your own for free, as long as it fits the size requirements of under 36×52 inches.
  4. Bring/Share your food: If your baby can enjoy solid foods, bring the snacks you know they can eat/aren’t allergic to. You can also pick up applesauce to-go packets from certain restaurants for a quick and cheap snack, or order a kid's meal for yourself or an older child that includes applesauce on the side.
  5. Rider Switch: One person/part of the party waits with the baby/child not tall enough for a ride while the other(s) wait in line and ask a cast member for a rider switch pass. After they are finished with the ride, they give the pass to the other part of the party and take over watching the baby/child while the original babysitters hop in the Fastpass line for that attraction.
  6. Where to Stay: By far the most convenient location to stay with a baby is on Disney Property, as they include babysitting services, shorter travel distances, and free transportation.
  7. Transportation around WDW: Use the WDW app to help you know the distance to/from your destinations on the property and how to get there. Parents can carry their babies on their laps on boats, monorails, trams, Skyliner, and buses. If you feel most comfortable with a car seat though, rent a car and a car seat or use one of the Uber/Lyft options with a car seat.
  8. Scary Rides? Babies are not old enough to realize that rides like the Haunted Mansion are supposed to be “scary.” So, don’t stress about taking them on any of them. Haunted Mansion is actually my baby’s favourite ride to nap on.
  9. Baby’s First Haircut: The Barber Shop on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom is fully operational and actually specializes in Baby’s First Haircuts! They will receive a Mickey hat and certificate for proof, too.
  10. Prepare for the weather: The weather in Florida is nuts. One second it can be hot, the next it’ll be cold and rainy. Make sure to check the weather and plan ahead.
