    My husband is convinced that our 16 mo old wont appreciate Disney yet, but I want to bring him so badly! What rides can he ride? Or is it worth it to wait until he is older to "appreciate" it?

    Hi Shira,

    We started bringing our kids to Walt Disney World when they were infants. While they may not remember those first few trips, my husband and I most certainty do. I can vividly remember both of my children as toddlers, lighting up and laughing at the characters. Or my son sitting in awe as we rode it's a small world. together. There's something amazing in watching your child walk around in front of Cinderella Castle and squeal with delight during a parade. Those are memories I'll cherish forever.

    There are plenty of attractions you'll be able to experience, too. There's a great section all about traveling with preschoolers and little ones on the Walt Disney World website that has loads of fabulous information on traveling with younger children. You'll find more attractions you and your son can ride together than not. And traveling with a toddler makes you slow down and appreciate your surroundings. My biggest tip is to try and keep on your normal schedule as much as possible. It will keep everyone refreshed and ready to have a magical time.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions, Shira. As you can tell, I am all about exposing children to the magic of Walt Disney World as early as possible. 

    Have a Disney day,
