To be perfectly blunt, I must admit I usually advise people not to go at all with children that young. People I know who did tend to've regretted it afterwards. The experience just works a lot better once your child has developed a disinclination to pee on you. You're basically paying heaps of money for an experience that's no good to them as they've no idea what's going on and hardly any good for you as you get to schlep around the world's neediest Tamagotchi through dog-eat-dog queues all day long.
But that's not to say you won't have a great time of course. What do I know.
I think it will be very special trip... Only things I would recommend is to invest in a baby sling. That way the baby can sleep and nuse comfortably while on the go. Also, instead of sitting down on a bench and nursing the baby, I would nurse on the slow rides. That way you kill two birds with one stone....
Thanks davewasbaloo. I must admit, I was a little bit worried, that it could be a bit to early, but is seems to me, you had a great time.
Well we've racked up hundreds of days at Disney resorts around the globe, and I can quite honestly say that the best trips (other than my honeymoon) were with the children.
But be careful, it's addictive. And my kids are now hooked. When we say we are going to the park, my 3 year old says "Ride the teacups?" - then i have to explain that there are parks besides Disney parks.
Some tips - the restaurants will warm milk for you, or we found we would ask for a large coke cup to be filled with hot water, and we would put bottles in them to heat up.
Also, the baby facilities are at the end of Main Street towards Discoveryland and also in the Front Lot at the Studios. These are great facilities for changing (although all bathrooms have changing facilities) they have microwaves, bottle warmers and sinks. There are rocking chairs and high chairs too. Please be advised that strollers need to be left outside.
The table service restaurants have high chairs that are quite comfortable, and we found the cast members throughout the resorts are fantyastic with babies.
Where are you staying? If you need any further advice, let us know. We have spent about 90 days at DLP, eaten in every restaurant, and stayed in every hotel except the Mariott Vacation Club (where we are staying this June).
Have a great time, and just remember to take it slow (and use baby switch if you want to step up the thrills a bit). Simply ask the cast member at the front of the attraction how baby switch works for that attraction. In most cases, one of you gets in the queue while the other stays with the baby and the person staying is given a ticket. The person with the baby goes to the exit and when their partner gets off the ride, the other can get on without queing (and normally you can take one person with you again (three in WDW)). It does work slightly differently at each attraction, so be sure to ask the cast member.
We're staying at New Port Bay Hotel. It will be the third time at NPB (it's my favourite hotel) and the 9th time in DLRP. First time with child. Any tips and tricks for the NPB?
Is there a restriction for Phantom Manor and Pirates of the Caribbean? Can't remember, but I don't think so.
