    I love it that you and your wife have five precious children! At what age would you recommend taking a child to Disney World for the first time?

    Hello Traci!

    My wife and I are VERY blessed with five incredible children!  As an only child, I never knew big families were SO MUCH FUN!!

    Speaking of fun, my kids think Walt Disney World is the MOST FUN-tastical place on earth!  My kids have experienced Walt Disney World since they were babies, and I would not have it any other way.  I would say there are two schools of thought as to when the best time is to bring your kids.  Some would say wait until all of your kids are at least six or seven so that they are able to enjoy everything Walt Disney World has to offer.  However, if I took that advice, my oldest daughter would be 17 years old before she could go!

    I believe it is best to bring your kids with they are small, beginning at two years old.  (NOTE:  I brought my kids as babies, but two years old is the perfect age for a child to really start enjoying Walt Disney World!)  The wonder and imagination is so alive in small children, and Walt Disney World does such an incredible job at allowing my kids to dance with princesses and fight with pirates.  These are memories that my family will have for a lifetime!!!  Since my kids have been going to Walt Disney World since birth, their love for this place only grows more and more!  It truly is our "home away from home!"  

    If you have other questions about your upcoming Walt Disney World Vacation, please let me know!  (And thanks for asking me a REALLY fun question...great reminder of how blessed I am!)

    Have a MAGICAL day!
