My older son will be six and my younger son will be 11/2 and my sisters child will be just 5 months. I was just wondering would it just be smarter to wait until the two younger are older? when they can know whats going on or would going now be worth it?

Hi, Allison! There are two schools of thought on this one: (1) bring your kids to Disney World when they're really young or (2) bring your kids when they're old enough to remember it.
I fall into the first camp. Though there are certain attractions that the youngest kids won't be able to experience and many others they won't ever remember, I think the joy of seeing your toddler (or your sister's baby) at Disney World - and, seeing Disney World through their eyes - is priceless. They "ooh" and "aah" at everything, light up at the characters and love grooving to the music wherever they go. Plus, there is loads that you can do as a family, and the quality family time is irreplaceable.
The pictures we have of one of our sons at 6 months old and again at 18 months old are some of my favorites ever. The experience was equally awesome for his older brother (4 and 5 at the time, respectively.)
If you're up for it, I say do it!
