First day of vacation is here, the alarm goes off at 6:30 am, every one jumps out of bed. Park bags are packed, park reservations made, stroller loaded and you are out the door for rope drop. Halfway to your first ride of the day the baby starts to cry, and, it’s diaper changing time. Rummaging through your perfectly packed bag you realize one thing, you forgot the diapers. Now what ? Flip a coin for who has to go back to the hotel? Use an extra t-shirt ? Grab a bunch of napkins and wing it ? No ! Don’t worry (or blame your husband, like most of us do..wink wink) Disney is a magical place, including their Baby Care Centers.
Baby Care Centers
Each park is equipped with a Baby Care Center and they can be a lifesaver. Not only can you purchase those little things you swore you told your husband pack, but they offer a nice place for the little Mouseketeers to find some peace. They are fully staffed and feature helpful amenities for parents with infants and toddlers.

Can the Baby Care Centers Really Make a Difference ?
We took advantage of these every day when my kids were younger. They were amazing ! About halfway through the day we would slip into the park’s Baby Care Center and have a “wind down”. I would change my kids out of the clothes they were wearing, wipe them down and put them in clean clothes, even if they weren’t that dirty. Just a change of scenery, some dry, clean clothes and a little quiet time out of the noise of the park made for easier days. We’ve also been the parents that have forgotten the diapers and ran there for a reload. It’s a great place for the littlest ones to have a few minutes to regroup and just soak up some AC or quiet time.
