    We are thinking about bringing our little one to see Disney World for the first time at the age of about 2 1/2 years but my sister has said that he will be too young. We think it will be more magical for him at that age, what do others do or think?

    Hi Melanie,

    By all means, take your little one to Disney World!  I have taken each of my three children on a Disney vacation when they were toddlers, and the magical moments that we experienced are memories that will last a lifetime!

    I think your sister has the same reservations that many adults seem to have.  Your child is so young, that he won't even remember the trip.  This is probably true - although my children swear to me they remember everything.  I think they remember looking at photos over and over.  Even if they don't remember, you will!  You'll cherish every smile, every look of wonder and even every tentative glance from your child who may be a little intimidated by the gigantic characters.

    Best of all, children under the age of 3 are FREE.  You've got nothing to lose and a million fun memories to gain.  I say, go for it!

    Hope this helps, and I hope this is the first of many magical vacations!
