In my last post I went over essentials for plane travel and arrival in Orlando. I also recommend considering renting a car if you are staying on Disney Property. Having baby, infant carrier, stroller and diaper bag on a Disney Transport bus can be quite cumbersome, but not impossible. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you can utilize the free transportation all around Disney World.
Here are some tips for using Disney’s transport:
- Baby wear.
- Very helpful for busy buses when you might need to stand.
- Fold your stroller.
- Get this done before the bus comes, it makes boarding the bus easier. Side note: If you are on the monorail or boat, you don’t have to fold your stroller.
- Have a plan for who carries what.
- This makes getting on and off buses less stressful, for sure. Decide who will carry the infant carrier and stroller, and who will carry baby and the diaper bag.
- If you are staying on property, send your purchases to your resort for free.
- Just ask the cast member who is checking you out for help. You definitely don’t need to have extra bags on a busy bus at the end of the night.
- If the bus is very full, you can choose to wait for the next one.
- This will allow you to be first on board and secure a seat. Just stay at the front of the line and step aside, while a few more sardines are squished on board.
- Try not to leave the park right after a parade or firework display.
- It is mass exodus out of the parks after any parade or fireworks. Linger in the shops, have snacks, people watch on a bench, etc. It will be better than waiting in a gigantic line of people and being on a crowded bus.
For touring Disney’s theme parks with baby, I recommend starting the day early, use your 3 fast passes and have an early lunch in the park. Use your My Disney Experience app to get a few more fast passes for later in the evening. Leave after lunch and head back to your resort for nap time and swimming. After nap time, head back into the park to do a few more attractions, have dinner and watch the fireworks.… Read the rest
