    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!
