Well I live in Fl, and all I can say is that is hoooootttt, bring a nice stroller, don't use the one that u rent in the park, they are so uncomfortable, I know that is not easy, when your are park hopper (going from one park to the other one in the same day), but is the best for your lil one, specially if your baby fall a sleep. There is a lot of ride that you can enjoy with your baby, and the show, too. But keep in mind that is summer time and with that there will be a lot of wait time. Try also to see the map of the park that your will visiting, and make a plan of witch of the ride your will love to go first. Keep in mind that with lil one there is always a delay, in almost everything. lol. For breakfast the best place for the price is Ponderosa buffet. You also can bring your own water, so make a stop at the closer super, and get your self a box of water, buy a souvenir cup, or bring your own, the ice in the park is free. By the way, try to find a store out side, and get you lil a custom, in the park they are expensive, also u can bring your own light toy, the cost less out side, you can buy one for 5 at walmart, in the park the cost the double. That is what i did with my lil one. I also create him a autograph book and bought the pen out side the park. Bring a lot snack. Bring a dipper for water, there is a water area in Magic Kingdom, the live show in the park is a good thing to see, for you and your baby, don't forget to visit Mickey's town, you get to see his house and some other characters. Well may the Lord be with you and your fam. Have fun, and if you need anything, or if I can help you with anything let me know, after all I just live 45min away from Disney World. Have a nice trip.

We actually took our daughter to Disneyland and California Adventure in Anaheim CA in 2008 when she was a year and 2 months old. She had a blast!! Of course my husband and I used to work there and she already knew some of the characters even before she was a year. We mainly saw the characters and took pictures with them, didn't go on any rides since she was too little. She had more of an interest in the characters and the parade. We're taking her back this September, and she'll be 3 years old.

Boy Disney is a great place for vacation but in my opinion I would wait until my child got a little bigger. The human congestion is crazy and finding a line that is not long is a challenge. To just site is fine but not in the summer select a off season where it would not but hot for you baby.
