Those tips will be very helpful when we cruise with our 2 year old!

Does anyone know if Flounders is free, or do we have to pay for it?

Flounders is $6 per hour for the first child (I think you get a discount for a sibling).

Whole milk (vitamin D as it is called in Florida) is available at the buffet and at the 24 hour drink machine near the Mickey Pool.
Dumb question...does the milk come from a dispenser, or are there bottles/mini cartons available at the drink machine?

From my understanding, it comes from a dispenser.

I have no idea but you may want to look into a handicapped room as I hear they offer more floor space and may make the trip more comfortable.

Maybe some nursing moms can answer this question: Just wondering what Disney's policy is on nursing infants publicly (i.e., in the dining room, beside the pool, etc.). I know in Canada it's illegal to ask a woman to stop breastfeeding in public, but not sure what the policy will be onboard. Obviously, I would be discreet and cover up for the most part. But I wondered if anyone had any information on this

Please don't book a HC stateroom unless you need it for accessibility reasons. They are already few and far between.

I'm not sure..but I can let you know after next week! We sail on the 29th. BUT, I have to say that I'm not concerned at all. (actually...I never thought to be concerned). I know at WDW I never had any trouble.

We've always been able to get little cartons on milk at the buffet. Also, if the buffet was closed when we needed milk, we simply ask for it where they have the fruit/salads. They were always nice about going and getting us a couple cartons (twins).

California and Florida both allow public breastfeeding, I would think that the cruise ship would be under one of their jurisdictions. Mexico also doesn't seem to have a problem with breastfeeding (I had the same question when traveling to Mexico last year.)

Just nurse your baby when you need to and don't give anyone else a second glance! Chances are there will be more revealing bathing suits!!

I have NEVER had a problem nursing at Dland. I have used their nursing rooms (quiet and cool) but I usually sit on a bench. I have even tandem nursed my twins while leaning on a low wall. Did anyone notice? I have no idea! But no one said anything to me.

Room is already booked, but I wouldn't book a HC room anyway.

Thanks for all the tips. I have a question... We have a toddler girl (our 1st child) who will be 19 months old when we cruise...and I know a lot can change over the next 5 months, but if we were to cruise right now, she wouldn't make it through dinner. She only sits in her high chair so long b4 she gets frustrated. So, do parent have to leave dinner early? Or should we put her in the nursery every night for dinner?

We were really hoping to put her in the nursery at times when we could enjoy the adult only areas, etc....

Can anybody tell me their experiences?
