    Hello, I am thinking about planning a trip for me and my family of five. I have a 2 year old and I want to make sure that he is able to enjoy as well. What is the right age to bring your child so they can also ride the rides?

    Greetings Arieanna!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    A trip to the Disneyland Resort is a wonderful idea for a family, regardless of your childrens' ages!
    I say this because I started taking my boys to the parks when they were newborns and believe it or not, there was always something fun to do. Plus, our memories captured in photos will always be there to make us remember those days when our boys were so tiny!

    The Disneyland Resort is a fabulous vacation destination for the young and the young at heart. In other words, there is no "right" age... believe me.
    For younger kids, like your 2-year old, there are many attractions to be enjoyed at the Disneyland Park, including:

    *Dumbo the Flying Elephant
    *Casey Jr. Circus Train
    *Pirates of the Caribbean

    There are also fantastic attractions that serve as awesome sensory experiences with a lot of color and festive music, like The Enchanted Tiki Room.

    For parents, there are Baby Care Centers in case you need to take a break, change a diaper or have your 2-year old use the potty. And most importantly, you can find age-appropriate foods throughout the parks for your toddler.

    I just know a trip with your entire family would be thoroughly enjoyed.
    I hope this helps!
