Disney with an infant

Here it is, plain and simple…

Can you do Disney with an infant? Definitely.

Should you do Disney with an infant? Probably not.

This past weekend, we took our two month old on a quick trip to Disney World. We were staying at a beach apartment for a week and because we were only an hour and a half away, we thought it would be fun. Please keep in mind that this trip was only a one day, one park trip and we didn’t pack anything the we would need for an overnight stay at a hotel.

The plan

We planned an easy day at Epcot. No major rides, no real schedule to follow, just a “go with the flow” kind of day. Luckily the weather was amazing; cloudy and breezy the entire time we were there. We also planned for a late lunch/early dinner as soon as we fed the baby so that she would sleep while we ate.

What we packed:

  • Diapers
  • Wipes
  • Change of clothes
  • Formula & bottles
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Baby carrier

The Reality

Having no schedule made everything 100 times easier. We only went on two rides with the baby: Gran Fiesta Tour and The Seas with Nemo & Friends. Both of these rides were baby friendly but after two attempts of going on with a calm baby and exiting with a fussy baby, we decided to end it there.

(Living with the Land & Spaceship Earth would have been good rides to consider too)

During dinner, our hopes of a full and sleepy baby were completed crushed. We both took turns stepping out to calm the baby so that we wouldn’t disturb others. Once the food was ready, I went outside with the baby while Eman ate and then we swapped.


Simply put; yes it can be done, but I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s a lot of work and you won’t be able to enjoy much. Disney is expensive, even if you have annual passes. There’s the price of gas/flights, hotel, food, etc.

If you plan on going anyway, here’s a few tips:

  • Pay attention to the weather and plan accordingly
  • A baby carrier will be your best friend
  • Bring a change of clothes for you & baby
  • BE FLEXIBLE

See ya’ real soon!
