    What's the best age to bring kids? I have a 3 year old and 6 month old but I'm ready to go now!

    Hi, Kirsten!  The best age to bring kids is while they still believe the "magic."  This can be different ages for different children, but I began taking my daughter and son to Walt Disney World Resort when she was three and he was one.  We've been back every year since, but those first trips are still my favorites because Sleeping Beauty and Buzz Lightyear (all the characters truly) were real, Cinderella's Castle was real, and all the magic made by the Disney Cast Members was real.  Even though they are growing up quickly, the Disney magic is still real for my 10 and 12 year olds.  We have found all new ways to enjoy the parks since some reality found its way into our vacations.  Start while your children are young and everything (including the way you enjoy the trip) is still seen through the eyes of a child.  Your 6 month old may not remember this trip, but it simply gives you a reason to return in a couple of years.  Happy planning!
