Disney World, Trains, & Nap Time
A vacation at Disney World is simultaneously exhilarating and exhausting. For infants and toddlers, who are already used to taking regular naps, the constant stimulation, heat, and lack of routine can be especially challenging. However, you don’t have to let your baby’s nap schedule fall apart on your Disney World vacation. You also don’t have to spend hours each day moving back and forth between the park and your hotel room.
Ultimate Nap: Animal Kingdom Trails
Remember, we’re talking Disney World here. These trails aren’t anything like “real” trails. Wide, level, and easy to stroll through, the “natural” settings and sounds can help lull your baby to sleep in the stroller. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for gazebos, and little turn outs where you can park in shade. Maybe you’ll get a little rest yourself?
Napping on the Monorail
One of our favorite nap spots in Disney World, and most toddlers seem to agree, is the Monorail. If your little one is needing some shut eye, the quiet, soothing sounds and motions of the Monorail is the perfect place to get it! Generally speaking, the Monorail isn’t that crowded (just avoid the ‘commute’ times!). Take a few loops through the parks while your baby naps, and then join up with the rest of your family when she wakes up!
If you aren’t staying in one of Disney’s Deluxe Resorts, use the Monorail to go out and visit them. Stroll your baby through the gorgeous walkways of the Polynesian as she naps. This is also a great opportunity for you to get out of the hustle and bustle of the amusement parks to enjoy another side of Disney!
