A quiet refuge from the crowds that sells anything you forgot at the hotel? Yes, please.
As any parent who’s done it knows, so much planning and money go into a Disney Parks visit, and throwing a baby into the mix makes things that much more complicated. Not only do you have to lug all their gear, extra clothes, food, diapers, a stroller, and so on, but what do you do if you forget something back at the hotel? That’s where the Disney magic comes in.
A lesser-known attraction at Disney Parks (but arguably one of the best!) is their amazing Baby Care Centers—fully staffed lounges that are just what you need after a day of juggling toddlers and long lines. These large, fully equipped spaces offer a quiet, air-conditioned place to feed and change your baby away from the crowds. If you forgot your baby food or ran out of diapers, you can also buy backups of anything you could need.
Here’s everything Disney Baby Care Centers offer:
- Nursing room with rocking chairs
- Changing room with tables
- Toddler-size toilets (for Guests under 42” tall)
- Feeding area with highchairs
- Kitchen with sink, bottle warmers, filtered water dispenser, and microwave (select use only)
- Vending machine or shop offering formula, baby food, juice, diapers, wipes, sunscreen, pacifiers, and over-the-counter medication
- Main room with seating and Disney cartoons playing on the TV
The best news of all? It’s totally free to use the Baby Care Centers when you visit Disney. You’ll find them in Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World as well as in both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure at the California park. Just search “baby care” on the My Disney Experience app.

Mom Alyssa Sprake went viral on TikTok for her tour of the Baby Care Center at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
Not only were we surprised by how roomy and clean this space is, but it had so many handy items for sale, including period products and deodorant for teens and parents.
TikToker @xonissi shared the Baby Care Center at the Disneyland property:

One commenter replied that the kid-sized toilets were super helpful when they visited with potty-training toddlers and another explained that the pacifiers were a life-saver when they forgot their baby’s soother at home. They’re also a place where lost children are cared for by cast members until they’re reunited with their families.
In a pinch, you can find changing stations at other bathrooms in the park, but they can’t sell you that pack of wipes you lost along the way—and they certainly won’t give you that same magical feeling.
