If you’re visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with a baby or toddler, the Baby Care Centers may become your favorite location in the park. Each park has its own center, and each Baby Care Center includes nursing rooms, changing tables, high chairs, and more – giving you the ability to take care of your baby’s needs in an air-conditioned environment away from the crowds.

The state of Florida allows mothers to nurse their children anywhere they would like to. As such, Walt Disney World is breastfeeding friendly and you can nurse freely throughout the parks. However, the Baby Care Centers offer private, dimly lit rooms with rocking chairs for mothers looking for a more relaxing atmosphere

Inside the Walt Disney World Baby Care Centers
The parks are huge are there is only one baby care center per park, so we didn’t do all of our diaper changes and nursing sessions in there, but it was just fantastic to have that option and meeting point when the baby and I broke off from daddy and the “big kid”.
Pro-tip; If you need to store your breast pump while you are in the park, go next door to the First Aid Station and they will hold it for you for the day. The First Aid Stations are located next door to the Baby Care Centers in all four parks.
There is a room with a tv, and chairs to relax for older children while they wait for mum and baby.
Lost Children’s center
The Baby Care Centers are the meeting spot for lost children. If a lost child is spotted in the parks, this is where the cast will bring them.
