Did you know that their is a Baby Care Center in each park?? Some are easier to find than others but they are there for you!
I cannot over-emphasize the importance of these baby centers. They are an incredible stress-saver, especially for the already-hectic family vacation planning process. I think the term “baby care center” may create some skeptics, but PLEASE don’t stay away! It is great for toddlers and young children. It might just be one of the best decisions you can make during your time at Disney.
Recently, one of my clients went to Disney and used a baby care center. After only her first day using it, she told me “I never want to leave”! This speaks volumes on how much of a difference it can make during you and your family’s magical adventure. Perhaps one of the most important make-or-break factors in your trip is how you navigate the sometimes-insane Florida summer heat. Well look no further, because the baby care center is air conditioned and comfortable, and has places to just sit and relax, perfect for giving yourself ample rest time after spending the day in the sun.
For nursing mothers, you can nurse in a private room or if you want, you have the option to use a pump (there are available outlets and power sources), and there are rocking chairs available for you and your baby to have some quality resting time. (Remember, a busy mom needs to sleep sometime too!) In each park, there is a baby center clearly marked on the park maps or Disney App, and each park’s baby care center is a little bit different.
For your little ones, it’s a perfect opportunity to sit down and chill out. In each care center, there’s a main area where there is sofa, table and chairs where you and your kids can watch TV (Disney cartoons) or just rest for a while. It may be just what your children need to get through the day without a meltdown. Each care center comes with a kitchen area that has a stove, microwave and sink, and a changing room with a unisex bathroom. There is even a feeding area with high chairs!!
Each baby center also has an on-site shop for things you may need that include: sunscreen, formula, baby food, diapers, wipes, over the counter medications, and clothes- all available for purchase. IMPORTANT: If a child gets separated from their parents they are taken to the baby care centers. We all hope and plan that this never happens, but Disney has it covered, just in case. Please use the baby care centers to keep not just your little ones, but your big ones happy!
