Your Guide to Disneyland with an Infant or Toddler

Last month we took our annual family vacation to Disneyland and California Adventure. It was the first time we got to see the new Cars Land and boy, was that an amazing experience. 

I have done a lot of research on this and have experienced it firsthand. Disneyland is a magical place for both children and parents alike, so I hope to answer the questions you have and give you a peace of mind. 

1) “Can my infant or toddler ride any rides?”  Answer: YES! Any ride that doesn’t have a height restriction you can take your infant or toddler on! We took my youngest to Disneyland when he was a month old 

2) “I’m a breastfeeding mom and don’t feel comfortable nursing, how will I feed my child?”  Answer: Disneyland REALLY has parents in mind throughout their theme parks! Both parks have a Baby Center and there you can buy diapers for $1. 

3) “I am so bummed my oldest can’t enjoy the rides with both of us, any advice?”  Answer: Never fear, Disneyland has this awesome pass called the Rider Switch Pass! This magical pass allows parents to take turns riding a ride that has a height restriction. 

4) “I hear the new Radiator Springs has the longest line and there aren’t any Fastpasses Available, how are we ever going to ride it?”  Answer: Here is a little tip. RIGHT when the park opens, head like you are going to Cars Land, when you get to the Bugs Life area, you will see a line forming, GET IN THAT LINE! 

5) “My child is in the Individualized Education Program (IEP), does Disneyland cater to that in any way?”  Answer: If you bring your child with special needs up to the Guest Relations office you will get a special assistance pass (SAP)
