    Planning a trip: The oldest would be just 3 yrs and the youngest 9mths. Should we wait another year before going? If we do go now, would the 9mths sit on my lab for the rides/attractions? How does that work?

    Hi Julie!!!

    We started taking our son at six months old and he is about to turn four.  He has been almost 10 times.  I definitely say go for it!!!  Everyone always told us not to go because our son wouldn't remember his trip, but we have such fond memories from our first trips with him!!  Now that is getting to the age/height where he can experience different and new attractions, we are making new memories with him!!!

    As long as the attraction doesn't have a height requirement your nine month old will be able to ride the attraction.  In most every case of there being no height requirement, your child can even ride in your lap (Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, it's a small world, just to name a few!)

    I hope this has answered your question!!  Please let me know if you have any other questions!!

    Have a magical day!
