Before I became a father, I didn’t even know that there were such facilities in any Disney park. Then again, before I became a father, I didn’t care for a lot of things. Then little Mahina (My daughter’s name) came into my life and all of a sudden, my eyes opened up to things that I’ve never noticed before. I started noticing diaper changing stalls, nursing rooms and baby care centers. I went from talking to buddies about women to having discussions with the guys about brands of diapers. It’s funny how life changes.
Tokyo Disney Resort is fully equipped with parenting facilities. Nursing rooms, diaper changing stalls in nearly every washroom and baby care centers. If you run out of diapers or milk powder when you visit the parks, don’t worry. Everything that you need to parent your child can be found at the baby care centers. But, as we all know, the house of mouse ain’t cheap. My advice is to make sure that you bring enough of everything to the parks. Mickey don’t do discounts.
In total, there are three baby care centers and one nursing mother’s lounge in the two parks. TDL has 2 baby care centers and TDS has a baby care center and a nursing lounge. If you are planning a visit to TDL and you need to use this facility, head to the one in Toontown. The theming for the one in Toontown is much more detailed and it is a lot less crowded than the one in Tomorrowland.
In TDS, there is a nursing mother’s lounge and a baby care center. The nursing mother’s lounge is essentially a place for mothers to breastfeed their babies. It doesn’t include a lot of the other facilities you see in the pictures above.
I’ve been to the parks 3 times with our 10 months old daughter and we really enjoyed ourselves. We didn’t use the facilities all the time when little Mahina felt hungry. There were many times when our daughter got hungry, but the parenting facilities were just too far away. My wife just popped out her weapon, covered little Mahina and started feeding her on a bench or in a restaurant. We would often find a quieter place, somewhere near us to feed her. People didn’t give us any weird looks or anything. As long as we were respectful and covered up, everything was fine.
When it comes to changing diapers, most toilets in TDR have diaper changing stalls in the men’s and females’. Daddy could feel a little important when it comes to diaper changing. Just take your child, look at your wife and go, “I’ll be back.” Your wife’s heart will melt seeing you radiate with such manliness….. Ok, getting way above our heads now. Well, at least you’re giving your partner a little time to rest and we, MEN, can get to spend some quality time with our little ones. Win, win situation. ROAR!!!
