    are my 6yo going to enjoy and remember a disney trip? if it means an effort money wise, is this a good age to make an effort to take them?

    Hi, Mario!  Deciding what the "perfect age" to take a child on a WDW vacation is really up to you.    You need to decide if your little mouseketeer is ready to deal with waiting in lines, being in crowds, and a lot of walking!

    On the flip side, you need to decide if your child is ready for fun, amazing attractions, meeting characters, and experiencing the "magic" as only a child can.  

    My kids (who are now 10 and 7) have been going to Disney since they were babies.   I have so many amazing memories and photos that I will never forget.   They don't remember their first steps on Main Street, or the first time they met Mickey Mouse, but these are the magical moments of being a mom that I cherish!

    You will need to weigh the pros and cons of a WDW vacation, see if you can find a vacation that fits your budget, and take time to look through with your child to see if this is a vacation worth investing in.  

    As a Disney Mom, I hope you decide to take the plunge and visit Disney and find it to be as extraordinary as I do, but it is ultimately your choice, so think it through and good luck deciding!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
