    This panel is SO helpful! My husband & I are taking our 18 month old daughter to Disney in September 2009. I know that she won't remember much but do you have any suggestions on dining experiences for such a young age? Thanks for any help!

    Hi BethAnn,

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip!  I've been travelling to Disney since my kids were tiny, long before they could remember any of our excursions.  While they can't remember the trips, I have albums filled with amazing memories! 

    Some of our favorite meals with our little guys were character meals, including Cape May Buffet (breakfast) at the Beach Club, Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom and Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary.  My kids loved the characters from an early age, and had a great time eating with them.  My youngest has been flirting with Minnie since he was one, and we have a great picture of him giving her nose a big squeeze with jelly all over his face!  The characters do a great job of not overwhelming little visitors.  If your daughter gets scarred, you can feel free to hold her when they come by, or even enjoy them from a distance.

    Have a wonderful trip with your little princess!
