    Hi I have a 1 year old and a 2 year old and I was wondering how much there is to do with them at that age (such as rides and ect)?? Or if its worth waiting till they are older? And if so what age you recommend?

    Hi Rebecca - We traveled on our first family vacation to Walt Disney World when my kids were 11 months and 2 years old, and we had a great time.  My daughter (the 2 year old) loved seeing all of the characters and riding many of the slower rides, and we were able to take my 11-month old son on a few rides too.

    Depending on your vacation goals, you can definitely have a great time if you go now.  But, if you are only planning on one big family trip to Walt Disney World, you may want to wait.  In my experience, ages four and five were the best for our kids, because they loved the characters and could go on more of the rides.  However, the great thing about Walt Disney World is that there's so much to do, that you can have a fabulous vacation regardless of age. 

    I hope that helps you make a decision!  Have a great vacation!
