    What age is the best age to start taking your kids to disney world for them to have a very memorable experience I have a 3 yr old son and 7mth old daughter, Oh and my husband and I also want to have a great time as well.... I would like to got for a bday

    Hi Dedrekia!  As you and I both know, your kids will probably love Walt Disney World at just about any age.  Your question, though, specifically addresses memorability.  Obviously, your seven-month-old baby girl wouldn't remember a trip you took in the near future.  Your son, too, would probably not hang on to long-term memories of your vacation.  If the most important thing to you is that both of your children remember the magic, I would suggest visiting when your youngest child is six or seven.  Most people I know have hazy memories of kindergarten, but those memories become much clearer when they think back to first or second grade.  We took our first trip when my oldest daughter was seven and she remembers the details of it still, ten years later.  On the other hand, her younger sister (who was four at the time) has absolutely no memory of that trip.  I will tell you, though, that I remember just how magical it was and how she stood in awe of so many sights and experiences during that first visit.  Granted, she might not remember it, but I wouldn't trade those memories for anything.  Sometimes, the memories we have of our children are every bit as important of the memories they have.  Good luck with your decision!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
