    My son will be 3 on July 4, i m planning to take him to WaltDisney people keep telling me that he's too young, he wont understand anything. I just want him to meet Mickey, Minnie, and Donald they are his favorites. Please give me some advices.

    Hi Judithe,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel, you've come to the right place for some advice on planning a Walt Disney World Vacation for your son.

    I am a huge proponent of bringing toddlers and pre-schoolers to Walt Disney World, true that they may not remember it....but YOU will.  Really the memories that are created during a WDW vacation are priceless, and you are never too young to experience the magic.  There will be PLENTY of things for you and your son to experience together.  My children still enjoy pouring over our vacation photo albums, and love to hear the great stories about our experiences.

    Now with all that said, I have a suggestion.  If it is at all possible, I would consider changing your travel dates.  Historically the week of July 4th is one of the busiest weeks of the year to visit.  You should expect extremely high crowd levels and long waits during this time.  If it is not necessary to travel in July due to work/school restrictions, I wouldn't .  If you could put your vacation off until September you will save money because it is value season, and enjoy relatively low crowd levels due to the fact that children are back at school during this time.

    Happy birthday to your little guy, I hope you've found this helpful!
