    Is 3 and a half to young for a child to enjoy disney world?

    Hi Mina,

    In response to your question, ABSOLUTELY NOT!  You can never be too young or too old for the Walt Disney World Resort.  While your three and a half-year-old child will not meet the height requirements of some of Walt Disney World's thrill rides, the Disney parks were designed with children of all ages in mind.  In fact, there are some wonderful attractions geared specifically to his or her age group.  Just yesterday I was reading about the new Disney Junior - Live on Stage! show that will open this March in Disney's Hollywood Studios.  This enchanting show is designed specifically for kids two to seven, although I might sneak in to see it too since it looks so darn cute! 

    You'll also find rides like Dumbo, The Flying Elephant, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Magical Carpets of Aladdin, and others in the Magic Kingdom.  Epcot has Kidcot Fun Stops for little ones, and there are plenty of things for an animal-loving little person to enjoy in Disney's Animal Kingdom.  My son's personal favorite at that age was The Boneyard, which is a sand and play area themed like an archeological dig site. When my nephew was just a little younger than your child, he was fascinated by the gorgeous fountains found all around the Walt Disney World Resort.  Who knows what your child will love most!  I personally guarantee that you will find much for your child to enjoy!

    Have a wonderful trip and be sure to take a camera to capture plenty of photos of this magical stage in your child's life!
