    I am debating taking our 2 year old son to Disney , I am worried he wont be able to ride alot of rides. Has anyone else taken a 2 year old ? I am trying to decide whether to wait until hes older or not. Thanks so much!

    Our son's first trip to Walt Disney World was at age 2.

    Does my son remember his first trip at age 2 to WDW? No. Does he enjoy looking at the pictures and watching the videos? Absolutely. He also loves to hear stories about what we did on that early visit. He finds it amusing that he called the monorail the "Disney choo choo". As his Mom, I would have been sad to have missed out on watching the "world" through his young eyes. Now we don't ride Dumbo as much as we race to Space Mountain. Those earlier years were precious for our family.

    I suggest you give the magic a try with your pre-schooler!

    Here are just a few attractions that your child might enjoy:

    Magic Kingdom -
    Peter Pan
    Small World
    Buzz Lightyear
    Tomorrowland Speedway
    Magic Carpets
    Jungle Cruise
    Tom Sawyer's Island
    Parade and fireworks

    Journey into Imagination
    Visiting characters in World Showcase and Future World

    Hollywood Studios-
    Little Mermaid
    Honey I Shrunk the Kids play area
    Toy Story Mania

    Animal Kingdom-
    Triceratop Spin
    Lion King show

    Don't underestimate the fun of the hotel pool, riding the monorail and visiting a resort's beach to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks.
