    We are planning a trip either summer 2012 or summer 2013. Our youngest son turned 5 in September. I'm wondering when you ladies think the best time to take him would be. He's 44" tall now but I'm afraid he's not mature enough to ride some of the ri

    Hi Crystal!

    I suggest going in both summers, but if you can only do one, then I suggest waiting until summer 2013.  I think your son will get more out of it when he's a little older and perhaps, more importantly, a significant amount of the new Fantasyland Expansion at the Magic Kingdom should be complete by then.  Specifically, the new Storybook Circus with Dumbo, Great Goofini children coaster, Fantasyland Train Station, Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid, Be Our Guest restaurant, Beauty and the Beast Village, and Belle Meet-and-Greet should all be open by then.

    Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
