    What is the best age to take your child to WDW for the first time? My son is 19 months now and I was thinking when he's between 3 and 4, but wanted expert advise. Thanks!

    Hi there Liz!

    I've had the pleasure of taking my kids at various stages and I can't really decide which has been the Perfect age... Each time has been fantastic! I love seeing the baby pictures with the characters and then as they grow older and more adventurous on the different rides they have grown into being able to ride. In fact my son just turned six and told me this weekend that he would ride some of the coasters this summer! I can't wait! I must say that before the age of three your child gets in free of charge so that's a big plus when planning your first trip. I hope this information helps you with your planning and if you have more questions, please ask away, we are always here to help! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
