It was love at first sight for Lynn. From the first moment she stepped foot in the Magic Kingdom she knew she'd found where she was meant to be. Many trips have followed that first back in February 2008 and each trip brings new and exciting adventures with her three amazing kids and husband. Lynn is also the owner of My Pixie Dust Diary.


Millions of families from all across the globe travel to Disney World each year for fun and entertainment. Whether you plan to board theme park rides, watch shows, or visit some of the local attractions you’re sure to have a great time. But for parents visiting the park with babies and infants, keeping everyone happy can be a challenge. Your baby might not be ready to enjoy the main attractions but Disney World offers some great facilities that should make your trip a lot of fun, even with a baby in tow.

4 Strategically Placed Baby Care Centers Located Throughout the Park

Each of the baby care centers located inside of Disney World are hosted by Carnation Baby Formulas. The services at these care centers are available at no extra charge for all park guests. The centers are the perfect place to change a diaper or feed the park’s littlest guests and it’s a nice oasis for Mom or Dad away from the hustle and bustle of the park. Here is a list of the locations of the centers so that you can plan which areas of the park you will visit throughout the day based on your child’s feeding schedule:

  • The Magic Kingdom Theme Park The baby care center is located right next to the Crystal Palace Restaurant on Main Street. Stop for a bite to eat and then rest while you feed your infant.
  • Epcot Theme Park The baby care center in Epcot is located inside of the Future World Odyssey Center. See what technology can lend to the future and schedule a stop for dirty diaper changing.
  • Hollywood Studios Theme Park If you want to watch a 3D movie being featured in the Hollywood Studios Theme Park, make sure to stop by the baby care center located inside of the Guests Services Building by the Main Entrance of the park.
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park Encourage your baby to be interested in the animal kingdom and all of the creatures within the kingdom by stopping by the baby care center in the Creature Comforts Store. Not only will your baby be comfortable, they will be given an opportunity to discover something new.

Additional diaper changing stations┬ácan be found in all public restrooms (both men’s and women’s) throughout the park.

Things You Cannot Go Without Seeing When You Are Traveling with Baby

Once your baby is in a fresh diaper and fed, there are specific attractions that you should stop by to ensure that you cater to your little one’s desires. Make sure that you take time to walk around the Magic Kingdom Park. There are several attractions in the Kingdom designed for little ones that will not overstimulate your baby. You also may want to stop by the air-conditioned Castle Couture, located inside of Cinderella Castle, when your baby is ready for their afternoon nap. If it is not too late, you might want to consider visiting Adventureland after dinner to watch the Main Street Electrical Parade that is sure to capture the attention of your baby.

Make sure you take advantage of the baby switch ride pass if you want to board your favorite rides without waiting in line. A baby switch pass allows a family to wait in line just once, Dad can wait in line and then enjoy Expedition Everest while Mom watches the baby. Then after Dad is done, Mom can use a the rider switch pass like a Fastpass, and jump straight to the front of the line. No need to wait in line again!

As you can see, just because you are traveling with a baby does not mean the entire experience needs to be difficult. Make sure to plan out your day and bring all of the essentials so that you can enjoy your getaway at the Happiest Place on Earth.
