Nursing at the Magic Kingdom

Recently on a trip to the Magic Kingdom, I brought along my 8 month old babe.

Knowing I would need to nurse, I snatched up a map and plotted out where the Baby Care centers were.

And was immediately disappointed because the Magic Kingdom (like Epcot) only has one Baby Care center.

And it's at the front of the park (located by the Crystal Palace).

I disliked this because what if I'm spending all my time in Mickey's Toon Town and need to nurse? What if I'm stuck on Tom Sawyer's Island?

Sure, there are benches everywhere at Disney, but sometimes a Mom wants some privacy and not a bunch of kids trying to figure out what she's doing on that bench with that baby.

On the flip side, the Baby Care Center was really nice. The nursing room had privacy, comfy rocking chairs and it was dimly lit.

Another advantage to the Baby Care Center is that it was stocked with an attendant (Cast Member) who had all sorts of baby necessities to purchase. There were diapers, toys, medicines, whatever you needed if you forgot to pack it yourself.

As it turned out, I did need to nurse the babe while on the other side of the park so I just plopped down on the ground (every where else was crowded with people waiting for the fireworks) and nursed away. No one bothered me, there were no kids pointing but as I nursed my babe, I thought it sure would be nice to be in a comfy, padded rocking chair instead of this floor.

Oh well, maybe in the future Disney will add some more.
More information about Disney's Baby Care Centers can be found here.

I received Disney tickets and was able to produce this article because of them. All opinions in this post are 100% my own. Please ask if you have any questions.

I will be nursing DS at Disney in a little less than a month. I also nursed DD there when she was 6 months old.

I only used the baby care center at the end of the day to get in one more feeding before we started the trek back to the hotel.

There are so many great spots to nurse around the World. Some of my favorite were on rides!
