Parent’s Tips On Disneyland, CA with Babies
We took our eight-month-old daughter and our 2-year-old to Disneyland. The children loved it. While my toddler loved going on the rides, my eight-month-old loved the characters. If you ever hesitated to take babies or toddler to Disneyland, stop worrying! It really works!
The majority of the rides are kid/baby friendly. My eight-month-old went on almost all the rides and I loved hearing all the giggles especially when we went in the Winnie the pooh ride.
One thing we always have trouble is finding bathrooms with changing tables, however, Disneyland had them in every bathroom. There were even diaper dispensers just in case you ran out.
In some of the convenient stores in the park, they sell items like sun block and other little things just in case you run out or just forget in the midst of it.
Disneyland also offers strollers in case you do not want to bring your own. While I find that great, we took our own and loaded it up with snacks and drinks for the family.
Also, the kids got buttons for it being their first trip to Disneyland, the workers were so friendly and my daughters loved the parade.
Even though they were too young to remember the trip when they get older, Disneyland is definitely a place that is kid friendly and the no matter what age they are they will love.
Tips For Planning Your Trip to Disneyland
- If you can afford it, live close by. It is perfect with young children to be really close to “home” both before and after the visit. No matter how fun it is, you will get exhausted!
- Avoid going when it is too hot or too crowded. Opt for fall or spring and not school holidays while you can!
- Bring lots of water and energy – both for the kids and yourself.
- Take it slowly and don’t aim for the whole park! If you really want to visit every part of the park and do all the rides, plan for a 2- or 3-day visit. Everything takes longer with young kids and a toddler might very well find the bird poop super interesting or never want to leave the Winnie the Pooh. Remember that you are there (also) for their sake, so be patient!
- A few books that can help you plan your visit are:
