Animal Kingdom - This is my favorite Baby Care Center! The rooms were spacious and colorful here. When you enter, there is a small seating area with a hostess and supplies you may need - medicine, diapers, wipes, and even changes of clothing. To the left, you'll find a waiting area for older children and husbands complete with tables and chairs as well as cushioned benches to enjoy the Disney movies that happen to be playing. In the back are several changing tables, highchairs, and a microwave. Off of this room are a few private nursing rooms which each feature their own changing table and a rocking chair. The size and atmosphere of this Baby Care Center made it very relaxing for several nursing breaks during the day.

Hollywood Studios - This was my least favorite of the Baby Care Centers mainly because of the size. This Baby Care Center is located inside of Guest Relations and is smaller than a hotel room. It attempts to have the separate spaces of the other Baby Care Centers, but in doing so makes everything super cramped. The nursing area here is separated into two private "booths" which was often not enough for the demand required at the park. Also, each of the other Baby Care Centers had a dedicated cast member to assist moms and dads, but Hollywood Studios did not. Overall, it served it's purpose, but some more space would go a long way in accommodating the many families traveling with infants.
The fact that Walt Disney World offers such great spaces for families with young children speaks to their commitment to making sure everyone enjoys their day in the parks. We spent A LOT of time in the Baby Care Centers on our last trip and would not have been able to survive as well as we did without them. Don't forget that Baby Care Centers are also a great place for older toddlers and young preschoolers too if they need a break from the heat or stimulation. They also feature kiddie sized potties so that those who are potty training will feel more comfortable then in the busy, big public restrooms. If you're traveling to Walt Disney World with young ones, be sure to check out these great facilities!
