    My husband & I are thinking of bringing our son to WDW. He just turned 1 in April of this year. I think I was 6 yrs old when I first came to WDW. Is he two young to bring within the next year? Should I wait til he's older so he can really enjoy WDW

    Hi Jamie,

    I just love it when I see this question.  There are plenty of people out there that will tell you to wait - I'm not one of them!  Sure, you son probably won't remember it - but you and your husband sure will!  People often underestimate the amount of fun that can be had by experiencing Walt Disney World through the eyes of a toddler.  It changes your perspective, it really opens your eyes to the existence of sheer joy.

    Yes it will be tiring, it surely won't be the relaxing vacation parents of toddlers dream of - but you have to deal with the diapering, feeding, bathing, napping anyhow...why not let someone else take care of preparing the food and making the beds while you get the opportunity to focus on your little one.

    So yes - you should go within the next year, life is too short, he will only be little for so long.  Bring your camera, take the road less traveled, be patient and simply enjoy.
