My son is 16 months old. We are planning to bring him to Disney this March. Is that too young? What would be the best things to bring him to?
- Asked by Maryann on 1/12/2012
Hi Maryann! This is a hard question to answer because all children are different. For example, my oldest son was extremely shy and fearful of crowds and a lot of noise/commotion, so it would not have been good to bring him at such an early age. His first trip was at 2 and a half, and that was fine. My youngest son has always thrived on activity and would have loved Disney at that age. So, I would use my best judgement. There are certainly kids of that age and much younger at Disney that seem to be having a great time. Go to this Disney World attractions
web page, and you can click on "recommended ages" on the side to filter for the things that are recommended for children of different ages. There are plenty of "easy rides" that your baby can sit back and relax on while taking in the sights. There are also parades and characters to see and lots of new foods to try. You can even make your own Customized Disney Map
to pick out your favorites before you go! Have a great trip!
