    Hi, my son is turning 2 next year. I've been to disney plenty of times as a young child. I would like to take my son for his 2 birthday were FL residents so we get that special discount. My question is should I wait orwill this be a well worth trip ?

    Hi, Vivian! The best age to bring kids is while they still believe the "magic."  This can be different ages for different children, but I began taking my daughter and son to Walt Disney World Resort when she was three and he was one.  We've been back every year since, but those first trips are still my favorites because Sleeping Beauty and Buzz Lightyear (all the characters truly) were real, Cinderella's Castle was real, and all the magic made by the Disney Cast Members was real.  Even though they are growing up quickly, the Disney magic is still real for my 10 and 12 year olds.  We have found all new ways to enjoy the parks since some reality found its way into our vacations.  Start while your children are young and everything (including the way you enjoy the trip) is still seen through the eyes of a child.  I would go! Happy planning!
