    I have a 2 1/2 year old boy and a 8 mth old girl. I would love to take them to Disney, but not sure where to start! Are they too young to enjoy the park? Where should we stay and how do we start the whole process?

    Coming from a lady who has visited while pregnant, with a newborn, a toddler, a toddler and a newborn...NO.  Definitely not too young!

    Disney is amazingly family-friendly, and even the youngest of children can enjoy the vast majority of the rides and attractions.  Offhand, the only ride I can think of that your son might be able to ride that your daughter could not is Goofy's Barnstormer.  It is a small, child's first rollercoaster in the Magic Kingdom, which has a 35-inch height requirement.  Beyond that, the few rides that do have minimum height requirements are likely too big for your son, as well.

    It's hard to say where to stay without knowing your budget, but my personal picks would be Pop Century in a value, Caribbean Beach in a moderate, Wilderness Lodge for a deluxe, and Old Key West for a villa.

    To start, I suggest that you explore the resorts and the package prices on, and work on a tentative date for your vacation.  And feel free to ask us any other question you might have - we'd love to help you plan!
