    Which is better for a 3 & 4 yr old, Disneyworld or Disneyland? We're debating bringing our 1 yr old or leaving him with grandparents. Thoughts?

    What a great question Kristy. Picking between the resorts on both coasts is like choosing between vanilla and chocolate; they are both amazing. With younger children involved I would suggest that you choose the resort that is easier to travel to. Since I live in Los Angeles, I travel almost exclusively to the Disneyland Resort. I have been taking my two children there since they were babies. While I would go slow as far as introducing the kids to the larger characters at first (I have a great photo of my daughter crying with Goofy), all of your family will have a magical experience. As for bringing the one year old, I say go for it! First off, children under three are free. Moreover, you will be able to capture moments at the parks with your youngest that are once in a life time. There is something special about seeing them in their first Mickey Mouse ears hat. I'm sure whatever choice you make your family will have a wonderful vacation at the Disney resorts.

As a Los Angeles native I basically grew up at Disneyland. It has always been so easy to take my family on the short drive to the Happiest Place on Earth. Watching my daughters make magical memories reminds me why I keep coming back. Learn More About Ari
