Babywearing On Walt Disney World Rides: A How To

Sunday, December 17, 2017

One of the wonderful things about going to Walt Disney World for this Floridian, is the fact that it is an ample opportunity for me to wear my baby (or toddler). In Florida, we are mostly driving around places, rather than walking. But at Disney, we have all the opportunity to walk. So I get to wear Miss Spunky a lot. 

A curly red haired mom in a purple tank top is looking at the camera. She is babywearing her toddler in a pink soft structured carrier on her back. Her older daughter is standing in front of her, facing the camera, and is wearing a long blue dress. They are in front of Cinderella's Castle and the Magic Kingdom.

Babywearing At Disney

After figuring out how to navigate my way through Disney with special needs, I then needed to figure out what to do when my little one would fall asleep. How would I continue to have fun in the park during her nap(s)?? Is babywearing on Walt Disney World rides even a thing?

There, of course, are no signs posted about this. No clear-cut yes or no about it, because it has nothing to do with being pregnant or having a health problem. Babywearing is still a foreign concept to many. So, nobody is talking about the possibility or restrictions regarding it.

Babywearing On Walt Disney World Rides: A How ToCan You Babywear On A Ride?

Yes! Yes you can! Many of them, in fact. From my experience and understanding, you can wear your child on any ride that you can take an infant on. So, obviously, not the Seven Dwarves Mine Train. BUT you can definitely wear them on, say, Dumbo the Flying Elephant!
Every ride I have tested personally is labeled below. Of course, use discretion. Babywearing on a ride is only safe and allowed when the baby is facing you, chest to chest. I also wouldn't suggest trying to have your child in a baby carrier while on, say, Astro Orbiter. 

So here are all the rides that have been tested time and again, and are approved! Split up by parks, and in alphabetical order.

Babywearing On Walt Disney World Rides: A How To
As you can see, you have the most options at Magic Kingdom. I really prefer to go there, simply because my toddler can truly enjoy the park and she can nap while I continue to enjoy it. It just works out for everyone involved.

Please use discretion when babywearing on rides and always obey what cast members request of you, if it is for safety.

I hope this helps you for your next Walt Disney World adventure!!

    1. Thank you! I really hope it does help some babywearing mama's!! I know I felt a little lost when I first started going with a small baby <3

  2. Wow that is so thoughtful of them to design rides where moms can take their babies.
    Yes new moms will be grateful to you for this list.

  3. Firstly I love your hair color. Secondly, looks like a fabulous trip. Great resource for parents heading there!


    1. Haha thank you! I like it sometimes, too ;P

  4. Great post! Sound adventurous.... the way you carry the baby on your back remind me of my childhood days. Thats how my mommy used to carry me ;-)...

  5. The info about babywearing, or even toddler and up wearing, is hugely useful in my opinion. With my kids who have sensory issues it saved us at places like DisneyQuest before it closed. Thanks for the info!

    1. I'm glad it was helpful to you!! It saves me whenever I'm at Disney! The few times I've forgotten a carrier were just CHAOS

  6. This is very helpful for mums with bubs who want to get the most out of a visit to Disneyland

  7. How clever! I just assumed you wouldn't be able to wear baby onto the rides but it makes sense that you can. Also makes for a much easier visit.

  8. This is such a great post . I am planning on taking my family to the Disney this year. If things goes well. Thank you for sharing this post.

  9. This is perfect. We are going to disney for christmas this year and we have 4 kids. So this will help so much with our twins. They will be just over 1! You guys look so happy!!

    1. That's awesome! Definitely wear as much as possible. You're gonna need it with that many kids! lol

  10. I love this post so much. I am a Disneyland blogger so I know all of the Disneyland rides but not Disneyworld. I am a huge babywearing advocate as well. At Disneyland they do let you babywear on the Mad Tea Party so they may allow it at Disney World as well. Its just so much easier to baby wear then it is to deal with a stroller IMO.

    1. Honestly, I haven't tried the Mad Tea Party, simply cuz I can't be that squished haha!! I've got too much boob and belly squish to be trapped in that cup with a baby (much less a toddler :D). But you probably could :)

      Strollers are good for 2 things.. Carrying snacks/bags & sometimes letting a bigger kid take a nap lol

  11. Thank you! I googled this topic wondering if I could find any info, and your page came up! Perfect!!!

    1. Glad you found the info you were looking for!! As rides get put in, I will be updating this, so as to keep everyone informed :)

  12. I got a mom in one of my fb mom groups.. she was asking about her 2.5 mth old. Are these rides okay for that young?

    1. Absolutely! In fact, the smaller they are, the easier it is to just keep them in a carrier ��
