    We are expecting a baby in June; how early is too early to take a kid to the Disney parks? Are we better off waiting until our child is 6 or older so that they can enjoy more rides?

    Hi there Eduardo! 

    Great question, I like to say that there is not bad time to go to Walt Disney World. But, it really all depends on how much you are wanting to celebrate the memories. I have friends who have brought their infants in just to take pictures with Mickey and Minnie.

    Granted, the kids will not remember a thing but, it's more for later on in life when they can take that picture and show it to their friends and say... See, I got my picture taken with Mickey Mouse when I was a baby!

    As a point of reference, my son was two his first visit and has been going ever since. It's really up to you. If you really enjoy the parks then visiting on the off seasons when the kids are still not in school is the way to go... 

    I hope this helps with your planning. Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel and have a great time at the Walt Disney World Resort!!!!
