10 Baby Tips While Vacationing at Disneyland

Disneyland-Resort-Hotel-Baby-Traveling-TipsIt’s no secret we’re big Disney fans. In fact, if we had it our way, we’d be at Disneyland every day. And since we’ve visited the park multiple times, we have a pretty good grasp on what to bring and do at the park with little ones including babies. 

10 Baby Tips While Vacationing at Disneyland 

  1. Baby carrier – This is hands down the best item to bring to Disneyland. It makes it that much easier to get in and out of rides while having your baby safe and snuggled up against you.  babycarrier2
  2. DisneylandFASTPASS & Rider Switch Pass – With FASTPASS you can save your place in line on some of your favorite attractions while you enjoy the rest of the park or take a feeding break. With Rider Switch, you and your partner will both still be able to ride the same ride with your little ones without having to wait in line twice! Just be sure to inform the Cast Member at the entrance of each attraction that you would like a Rider Swap pass. This is perfect for parents with two children that meet different height requirements.Disneyland-Rider-Switch-Pass
  3. Disney ride wait time app – This app is genius! Download the Magic Guide for Disneyland app before entering the park to see which rides have the shortest wait times. It also includes dining info, park hours and maps.
  4. List of Disney rides infants can get on – Be sure to read this list to find out which attractions are ok for babies to ride. Park Attractions for All
  5. Planning – Plan your day around baby meal/nap times. It’s always a good idea to walk back to your hotel room to take a midday nap or even a dip at the pool.Disneyland-hotel-pool
  6. Baby Care Centers – This is AWESOME! The Disney baby centers offer:
    • Nursing rooms
    • Changing rooms
    • Feeding areas with high chairs
    • Kitchens w/ sinks
    • Main room w/ television, tables, and chairs
    • On-site shops offering formula, baby food, juice, diapers, wipes, sunscreen, over-the-counter medications and pacifiers for purchase

    Disneyland Baby Care Center is located at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., next to First Aid. DCA Baby Care Center is located next to Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. Across from The Bakery Tour in Pacific Wharf.Disneyland-Baby-Care-Center

  7. Baby Finger snacks/ food pouches: Perfect for on-the-go and traveling
  8. Travel Playard – Yes, Disney hotels offer cribs; however, we prefer bringing our lightweight playard along.
  9. Weather appropriate items: Be sure to check the weather and bring items such as hats, umbrellas, sunblock, etc..Disneyland-ariels-grotto-dinning-baby-tips
  10. Lightweight Stroller – The last thing you want to haul around is an oversized heavy stroller at Disneyland. The UPPAbaby G -Lite and the Jogger City Tour strollers are both lightweight, a cinch to open/close and fold quickly to hop on and off the Disney tram. We love our UPPAbaby G-Lite and found it at the BabyCubby.com.

And let me tell you. The Baby Cubby store is unlike any other baby store. Their team is made up of parents who have been there, who know what it’s like.

They focus on finding the best and safest baby gear so you can shop confidently. And they even test strollers on a stroller track. But the best part about shopping at The Baby Cubby is that they price match every day – even amazon (so you know you’re getting a great deal), offer free shipping nationwide at BabyCubby.com and actively engage with parents via social media and their cubby community blog to discuss some of those hard parenting topics.

    We’ve had Disney on our list of to dos with the boys! I’ve also been looking for an alternative stroller to our large double stroller. Your pictures are selling me on this Uppa! I’m going to look into it. Would you recommend it for a one year old? Thanks!

    So, here’s the deal: I’m booking my trip to CA soon and you are my official Disney fella. Sounds good?

    Loooooved this post and that stroller is to die for! #uppababyteam

    Loved all of your tips, Gladys! A lightweight stroller is a must for Disney! We had a disability access card which allowed us to use it like the fast pass. It was really great to have without having to make our little dude wait too long in line.

what do you think?

  • When you’re toddler runs for the hills and no longer wants to take a mommy daughter pic with you. 😆 Zoom in on the right. She said ‘no pikcha’ and kept running. 😭 So now ya know, if Lexi is not in my feed she’s probably running for the hills.🤣 .

After 7yrs of owning our home, saving up and doing some research this past year, we’re finally starting our kitchen renovation this week!! To say I’m excited and stressed is an understatement. Excited to see the end result but stressed about the mess and being kitchen-less with kids. 🙈😆 For those who have done it, any tips? For those who haven’t, what would you change in your kitchen if you could? 📸 @lin_marty .

  • This little nugget is almost 7 and already started 2nd grade this week. Someone pass me a box of tissues. When did she get so big? 😢

This year, she put together her own outfits with @ChildrensPlace. I'm loving that she added a touch of her favorite things - animals and sequins. 😊 Swipe to see! Even her awesome rose gold boots have flip sequins on them. Anyone else have kids that are obsessed with flip sequins?

  • Mia picked out this big girl outfit for 2nd grade. And after snapping these pics I came to the realization that my baby girl is not so little anymore. It's like she grew over summer. 
She's obsessed with this @ChildrensPlace outfit. Picked everything out from head (cat ears) to toe (flip sequins rose gold boots). 😍🙌🏼 The Children's Place is going back to school with a positive, new attitude - to #AlwaysBU ✌️ They're encouraging kids to always be themselves, to embrace their individuality, and stay true to themselves as they walk through the halls this year.

Don’t get it twisted. We’re an imperfect family. We have our fair share of tantrums, and disagreements but we also love each other hard, lift each other up, celebrate our successes and push each other forward when we fail. For that, never taking US for granted. .
