    What age do you recommend for a little one to go to Disney?

    How ya doin' Erin and welcome to planDisney!

    From the moment my goddaughter and I chose each other, all I wanted to do was take that little cherub-cheeked critter to the Walt Disney World Resort. I may or may not have used it during the potty training phase as bribery. I longed to see her little face light up during a fireworks display or watch her twirl with the princesses. When she finally tapped that MagicBand to enter Magic Kingdom Park on her 5th birthday I was nearly crying. Thanks for letting me help make that same magic for you and your baby.

    If your little Mouseketeer is under the age of 3 then they're actually considered a Guest of my main mouse, Mickey. They can enter the theme parks without having to purchase a Theme Park Ticket for them. I'm always so taken with my friends' charming pictures of their smiling toddlers touching Mickey's nose or gazing in awe at the swirling colors and music of the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. And there are some excellent Baby Care Centers located in each park to accommodate mamas and their little ones. But as for me, I had an amazing time when the baby girl was turning 5. The lack of a diaper bag was a plus for me and she was old enough to remember so much of that trip. We just made sure to exit the parks during the hottest part of the day so she could catch a nap. After that, she was back in the saddle and ready for fireworks! She was also tall enough to do some of the roller coasters like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Now, years later, it still has a special place in her heart. 

    Erin, whenever you decide to take your baby it's sure to be a magical time. Whether he remembers it or not, you will and those are the special moments that last a lifetime. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back for another chat! 

    Happy planning!
