Have baby, will travel

The little guy has been here for the past two days, which explains my absence from my blog.  I’m not as young as I used to be, so I have to devote all my energy to him, which does not leave me any time to write.

I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to reference the amenities at Walt Disney World which can help make a parent’s life easier when they are traveling with little ones.  First of all, Carnation hosts Baby Care Centers at every theme park.  They are located: (courtesy of Disneyworld.com)

Magic Kingdom Theme Park

The Baby Care centers have diaper changing stations, nursing areas, and provide a quite place for Moms, Dads and babies to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the parks.

The advent of the Disney Vacation Club resorts is a blessing to those traveling with children.  When my girls were little, we did not have refrigerators or microwaves in the standard hotel rooms.  I used powdered formula, bottled water and heated the bottle in a glass of hot water.  Oh how times have changed!  Staying in a villa provides all the comforts of home and eases any concerns parents may have about bringing their babies.  The villas also provide privacy for families that you were not able to enjoy in a hotel room.  Kids can sleep on the pull-out sofas in the living room, and parents can relax in the Master bedroom.

I’m probably a bit rusty on all there is to know about the joys of traveling with little ones to the World, so I would appreciate any enlightenment from you Moms and Dads that have done it recently.  Any tips you would like to share?

    Gone are the days when you would pull over to the side of the road, open the station wagon and pull out the camp stove and make breakfast for everyone.

    But those were the most fun days of any trip. I recommend it to everyone.

  2. I guess when we started complicating vacations is when they got harder to take. Something to be said for the simple life.

    Ah – little ones are so much fun and can be challenging at the Disney Parks, but only if you don’t do a little research first and realize there are lots of ways to care for them. The most important thing to do is relax and enjoy the atmosphere and time with your little one :)!

  4. Love that Anne Geddes baby shot. Enjoy your time with the little one… Happy Holidays! 🙂

    • The hard part was trying to pick just one of Anne Geddes pictures. They are all so beautiful. My grandson is a joy and I am looking forward to Christmas with him. Happy Holidays to you, also.
