315...One Major Overlooked Attraction

If we were to rank attractions by sheer number of visits our family's number one attraction would definitely be the Baby Care Center at the Magic Kingdom.  The Baby Care Center is located right next to the Crystal Palace.  The changing room has five tables and we are talking nice, big, soft tables! There is also a family bathroom there, a kitchen with microwave and sink, a room for nursing mothers and a "play" room with toys and a Disney video playing.  Obviously we used it when we needed to change a diaper but we also found that it was a nice place to cool off and let the kids play.  They had free water from a water cooler and from time to time would allow us to fill up a water bottle or two.  Awesome!  They also sell diapers, formula and a few other kid related products.  But I really think my favorite part of the experience is when the ladies working there had a British accent, it made me feel like I had Mary Poppins helping me.  All the parks have a Baby Care Center and below you will find their locations.
-At Epcot the Baby Care Center is inside the Future World Odyssey Center.
-At Disney's Hollywood Studios the Baby Care Center is in the Guest Services Building inside the Main Entrance.
-At Disney's Animal Kingdom the Baby Care Center is located behind the Creature Comforts store in the Discovery Island area.
My 6 month old enjoying the Baby Care Center.  See how big the tables are?!

Dry, clean, cool and happy!

True, most if not all of the bathrooms at WDW have a baby changing station but why not use the Baby Care Center if you are nearby?  I think you will find it nice to sit for a few minutes in the cool and enjoy a nice cold beverage but be careful not to rock yourself to sleep!  Thanks for reading.

I wish I had known about this....Disneyland has them, too....but I always ventured into the adult bathrooms....not that much fun. And no British accents.

My favorite is the one at the Animal Kingdom.. it's just SO nice. I don't always stop in, unless we're close - I have no problem changing my son in any less populated area.. but they are the best option when possible! cute pics btw!
