    hi jo,just wondering what is the best age to bring my kiddies to wdw,they are 6,5,3 andhalf,and 9months.or would it be best to wait til my hubby is 40 in 3 yearstime? regards

    Hi Emma,

    Thanks so much for asking me a question. I have a good school friend who lives in Ireland and I really hope to get to travel there someday, I've heard it's gorgeous :-)

    Anyway onto your question which is actually a tough one. Disney World is a fantastic place for children of all ages, the facilities are superb and the whole place is child friendly but my main concern for your family would not be visiting Disney World but the actual flight to get there. I'm not sure how long the flight is from Ireland but from London it's around 9 hours which is a long time for such small children. I took my girls on an 8 hour flight to St Lucia when the youngest was 5 and they were amazing. I gave them lots of sticker and colouring books and they loved watching the inflight movies. So it really depends on whether you think your children would handle the flight OK!

    Personally I would wait another 3 years, your youngest will be almost 4 then and the whole trip will be so much easier, plus it gives you more time to save!

    Whenever you decide to go keep a look out for special UK offers on the main website.

    Hope that helps,
