    Hello. I am dieing to take my son to Disney but he is only four months. What is a realistic age to take him where he can actually ride the rides?

    Hi Erica,

    Disney is a special place for families to create memories! Walt wanted families to spend time together which is why he created Disneyland and eventually Disney World.

    As long as there are no height restrictions, your son is able to ride any attraction. Each attraction will list restrictions at the entrance or you can look online as well. It is up to you if you feel comfortable taking him on the attractions. Some rides such as Haunted Mansion are dark with twists and loud noises. For attractions your son can not ride, you can do a rider switch so you can enjoy it.

    While I would wait until my child was closer to a year, many other families have visited with children your son's age.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
