Taking a baby or toddler to Disney World is an experience that will last for years to come. But you and I know, Babies need a lot of care, especially if you are breastfeeding them on demand!
Technically you can breastfeed anywhere and anytime you want in Disney World, but it’s so much more fun to have some entertainment or with air conditioning! If you don’t need spots for breastfeeding, head over to this post to learn about everything else breastfeeding related (like packing!) at Disney World
Disney World does have breastfeeding/pumping/bottle feeding rooms available for you to use. The ones in Magic Kingdom and Epcot are semi-private, and the ones in Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios are individual rooms. Nursing rooms at Disney World are found in the Baby Care Centers.
Disney Springs does not have an official nursing room, but you can head to the Disney Springs Welcome Center to use one of the empty offices. It comes with an outlet in case you need to pump while you are there.
While I have a few favorites for my nurslings, Let’s take a look at ALL the place you can feed baby in the Walt Disney World Parks. There’s over 30 different rides and little nooks that I highly recommend. You can save this post so you can mark on your map where you might want to stop!
Busy being a parent and don’t have time to read the post? There’s benches and Baby Care Centers at every park. Any ride that doesn’t have a height requirement is good for baby, and you can grab a nursing session while you’re there. I highly recommend a baby carrier for nursing in lines too!
Also, make sure you have the My Disney Experience App, and you double-check the closures before you head to the parks. I don’t want you looking forward to some Air Conditioning only to find that it’s being refurbished!

Places to nurse baby at Magic Kingdom
When it comes to breastfeeding in the Magic Kingdom, you’ll see a lot of other mom’s doing the same! Magic Kingdom is the mecca for nurslings and enjoying your Disney World Vacation.
Magic Kingdom is also great for rides for little ones, and you can easily spend more than a day here taking in all the sites and fun festivities without being rushed!

Hopping over to Hollywood Studios Nursing Spots
Not to be a bringer of bad news, but hollywood studios has a really small baby care center. So if you feel uncomfortable nursing in public, you’ll need to have a few cover options when you head over to Hollywood Studios!
Hollywood Studios is also arguable, the hottest park temperature wise. This is likely due to all the concrete and the lack of trees! Plan for lots of water breaks and air conditioned time!
Or you can do Hollywood Studios in the morning and evening, and use the afternoon for a pool break! Either way, it’s a win win win!
The Baby Care Center is at the very front

Best Breastfeeding places at Animal Kingdom
Animal Kingdom is a great place to nurse baby, but you’ll also be doing a lot of walking as Disney World’s largest park! So make sure to remember to hydrate, especially at Animal Kingdom.
Animal Kingdom is set up kinda similar to Epcot. There’s a hub when you walk in, then a giant circle around the tree of life. Some people complain that it can be really humid, so keep that in mind when you are spending the entire day there.
Going left to right in the giant circle I’d recommend:
Many Hidden Benches in the Land of Pandora (hard to access in the morning)
The Baby Care Center right next to Starbucks (called Creature Comforts)
Any of the benches in Africa area (some shady ones over by the train entrance!)
The Lion King Show
The Train to Rafiki’s (but it’s a LONG walk FYI)
In between Africa and Asia there are charging port benches and covered pavillions
The seating area by Flame Tree BBQ
Dinoland USA has a boneyard play area
The Tree of Life, when open, has incredible views and hidden benches.
Last but not least, Breastfeeding baby at Epcot!
Nursing babies at Epcot is my favorite because there are so many great spots to sit and relax and a ton of entertainment most afternoons and evenings. Plus, there’s so many fun drinks to try, and you can get them all nursing friendly or to your comfort level.
We’ll split up Epcot into two spots. We’ve got the ‘worlds’ of future world east and west, and then we’ll cover the World Showcase with all the countries in a loop around the lake!

What about locations for pumping at Disney World?
Since I have the privelege of going to Disney World so often, I also get the unique insight to seeing moms with portable breast pumps! I’ve seen moms with breast pumps doing their thing in lines for rides, and in resturants. Since you can take a bag onto most rides, it makes it convient to use the time to pump.
If you are using a manual pump, you can likely do some of the same things, but using one of the locations above to have some peace and quiet (as it’s manual and not the same as electronic) may be to your benefit.
For those of you tied to an outlet for a multitude of reasons, you’ll need to head to the Baby Care Centers to pump. There are a number of places with outlets, like on somes buses, and the gift shop by Tomorrow Land Speedway in Magic Kingdom, but seating and availability may be scarce.
There’s all the places you can breast feed at Walt Disney World!
I’m also a big believer in nursing baby while you are babywearing or just walking about. Plus you’ll likely find that nursing in lines or on transportation helps to keep everyone calm (unless you’ve got a toddler nursling. I’ve been there and godspeed!)
The top places to breastfeed would be the Baby Care Centers, and any venues where you can find some air conditioning (or heat those few rare times it’s too cold!)
I’d also recommend that you grab a table service reservation around nap time for a late/early lunch. These are the top character meals for little kids. It’s so much easier to nurse/feed baby and then get them to sleep in the air conditioning and the stroller inside the restaurant.
