    We are planning a trip in Sept. 2013 with a group of 10+ people all of which are adults and my husband and I are considering bringing our son who will be 3, wondering how much we will be able to do with him? or if it would be a bother to the group?

    Hi Cassandra!

    There are TONS of things your 3 year old can do at  Walt Disney World!  My son is now 3, and he just loves it when we take trips to our favorite theme park.  He can ride ANY ride that doesn't have a height requirement and if he's at least 40", he even ride attractions such as Splash Mountain, and Thunder Mountain.

    That said, it may be difficult to keep up with a whole group of adults.  My family went with a big group last year and we were the only ones with small kids and it was difficult for us to keep up with the families with bigger kids.  We had to stop more often and were walking slower and at some points we had to let go of the group and meet back up with them later.  And of course we had to sit out on the "big kid" rides that our son wasn't tall enough for. 

    The choice is is entirely up to you.  I'm sure you will have a wonderful time and there is plenty of things for your son to see and do.  Maybe talk to the other adults in your group and see how they feel with having a child in the group. 

    Have a magical day!
