Disney with Infant

We’re scheduling our Disney World vacation for our (then) 7 month old. I am very familiar with DW as I am an annual pass holder and go about twice a year, but this will be my first time going with an infant. Any suggestions from experienced Disney parents? We’re staying at Wilderness Lodge and have already booked some character meals.

    I’ve never been and I’m super excited to take my daughter but I’m waiting till she’s a bit older because I want her to enjoy it since I won’t be able to go a lot.

    Following. We're taking our daughter for her first time in January when she will be 10 months.

    I went with my daughter when she was 6mo. I know that she won’t remember it, but we had a great time just being together as a family and watching shows and parades. I like that there are baby centers to nurse, change and even feed your baby using their high chairs. We only rode, it’s a small world and we were okay with it just because we don’t enjoy waiting in line. You’ll have a great time!

    We just got back from Disney World two weeks ago and it was amazing for our 2 year old. He had so much fun. The biggest thing for me was downloading the app, so we could mobile order food and also look at wait times. It felt like we were cheating when we waltz right past the 15 minute line to get our food at some of these places...

    We have gone twice. Stayed at the Poly, but booked Wilderness Lodge for next year because we liked their quick service restaurant! This summer’s trip, our youngest was 8 months. She loved the boat-style rides, like Pirates and Peter Pan! We aren’t a stroller family, so we just let her take naps in the baby carrier on my back. We did a lot of rider swapping for the rides my husband and I both wanted to do—definitely learn how that works before you go. We really like to alternate park and pool days, so we can recover in between. Make sure your room has a balcony or patio so you can sit together outside the room while baby naps or goes to bed early. We also use a cloud baby monitor app — Cloud Baby Monitor by VIGI Limited https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cloud-baby-monitor/idXXX-XXXX99?mt=8 — so we can check on baby or get instant alerts if she cries and we don’t hear it through the doors.

    When our kids were under 3 we made sure to try to keep their schedule. We would make reservations for character breakfasts before the park opened and then hit as many of the rides as we could before nap. If your 7 month old is able to sleep in public then you don’t always have to go back for naps but my kids always needed somewhere less something less stimulating. (It also gives you a chance to recharge before the evening.)
