As a mom of 3 and an Annual Passholder for almost 20 years, I have definitely utilized the baby care centers at all 4 Walt Disney World Parks. What’s in the baby care centers you ask? Well what isn’t. They have everything that you could possibly use for your infant and toddlers. Some of my kids have been going to Disney since they were 3 weeks old. So these baby care centers have been a life saver. Let me tell you what you can find in each and every one of them.
Each center has a private feeding rooms with rocking chairs. I have used all of them and they are quite comfortable. The rooms are dimmed making it quiet and relaxing for both you and the baby.
Each center also has changing tables which are really nice. They are much bigger than the ones in the restrooms and they give you disposable paper to put on the table prior to changing. Keeping everything sanitary. And speaking of sanitary, they also have a unisex bathroom. My personal favorite is the one at the Magic Kingdom because they still have the standard flushers, not automatic. This was particularly important to one of my children during potty training because they were scared of the automatic flushers. On a side note, if your child is afraid of the automatic flushers and the baby care center isn’t readily available, invest in a pad of sticky notes and throw them in your diaper bag. When your little one needs to go potty, simply slap a sticky note on the sensor behind them and the toilet won’t flush until you take it off.
Another great thing they offer at the baby care center is a feeding area with highchairs. They also have a kitchen with a microwave and a sink. This is particularly handy if your infant/toddler gets easily distracted from eating in the crowded restaurants. This area is much quieter and easier to feed your little one. If you run out of formula, baby food, juice, diapers, or other baby supplies, they also have an on-site shop to purchase these things. They even have some clothing and over the counter medication.
One last thing, if you and your child just need to escape the heat and settle down for a little bit, they have a sitting area where your little one can just watch TV and take a break. So the next time you are at Walt Disney World, check out the baby care center. They can easily be located on your park map or ask any cast member.
