    We are planning a trip to WDW and was debating on wether to bring our 2 1/2 yr old along. We are flying from Oregon. We are wondering how many rides he can really go on? Also when would be a good time to plan out trip?

    Hello Brandy,

    There's something so special about planning your child's first trip to Disney!

    First, let's address travel. When my daughter was three, she had a big year. We made two trips: cross country to Hawaii and her first visit to Disney. I was mortified about her first plane rides. We had traveled hours by car before but a plane ride was new territory. But I came armed with movies, snacks, and a new surprise toy for the flight. Each provided enough distraction to make a pleasant trip for everyone on board.

    Now, on to what brought you to the Moms Panel in the first place: Disney! It's obvious you see that Disney can be a fantastic place for both adults and children. Looking back, I wonder why we didn't bring my daughter sooner. Your toddler will love attractions like Dumbo, It's A Small World, Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage and Kilimanjaro Safaris. But he'll also enjoy exploring World Showcase with you and dining at the many great restaurants on property. Even if it's not a character meal, the theming at the restaurants alone will keep your little one entertained.

    Just be sure to have a stroller, whether you're bringing one from home or renting one at the parks. There's a lot of walking involved, and your son will likely welcome the break off his feet.

    Hope this helps with your decision. Happy trip planning!

My family loves our Main Street in Ohio. But there's simply no comparison to Main Street U.S.A.! We don't get to Disney quite as often as I'd like, but that just means finding new ways to sprinkle Pixie Dust on our adventures! Learn More About Monina
