    WDW with a child ( quick question )

    my wife was asking this, and i said i could get her an answer faster then anyone else!

    with a child, what is the deal with car seats? are they needed on the buses or monorail for a certain age?

    what about the plane? do the airlines have one that can be used, if needed?

    You do not need a car seat for the monorail or buses. There are no seat belts so it would be impossible to secure to anything.

    As far as the airlines go, they do not provide carseats, but you can bring your own. If you choose to bring a carseat you must purchase a seat to put it in. If your child is under 2 (which I believe yours is right?) you can place the child on your lap for no additional cost. I know that there are products that you can purchase to help secure your child to you within the confines of your seat belt.

    Ditto to everything Melissa said. If you aren't renting a car or planning on taking a taxi anywhere, you won't need a car seat. If you are taking the free Disney shuttle you won't need a car seat, but if you decide to take a limo service most of the companies provide car seats for free.

    You might want to consider that flight attendants refer to lap children as "footballs", as they tend to fly around during turbulence.

    Some good travel products are available online at www.onestepahead.com, including a portable car seat. Just be sure to read the fine print, as to what is allowed by the FAA or not.
