    Greetings! I have a 4 year old son. He is approx 3ft tall and weighs about 35 lbs. I was wondering about how many rides at Disney world he would be able to ride on.. is the trip worth it for a child that size?

    Hi Brian,

    In my opinion, your son is at a WONDERFUL age to experience a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! He'll love getting caught up in the stories of swashbuckling pirates, seeing Nemo and friends swimming alongside other sea creatures, partnering with Buzz Lightyear to defeat the Evil Emperor Zurg, and so much more!

    I'm happy to let you know that you'll find there are LOTS of attractions without a height restriction that you and your son will love experiencing together. On top of that, he'll love all of the opportunities to meet beloved characters in person and wave at them during the incredible Festival of Fantasy Parade at Magic Kingdom Park or during Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Is your son a Star Wars fan? I'm sure he'd LOVE the opportunity to become a Jedi knight and battle Darth Vader! I see that you're looking at visiting just before Christmastime, so you'll find that the entire Resort is in full-on holiday celebration mode. I really think you guys would find plenty to do and would absolutely have a BLAST!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Brian, and please let us know if you have any other questions about planning a Disney vacation. I hope that if you decide to bring your son, you guys have a truly magical visit and make memories together to last a lifetime!
