    Amanda from TN Asked

    My husband & I want to go to several of the Disney Parks while there in Oct but we will have our 10 mo old daughter with us. Do you think that is too young? Will she have fun? Will we? How much would her ticket be if we did a 5 day Pass w/Park Hopper?

    Amanda,

    Coming from a certified Disney fanatic I can tell you that 10 months old is NOT too young!  We took our daughters practically from birth!  (Ok, not quite, but definitely by 3 months) 

    You will all have a great time.  It's amazing how even very little babies find something to love at Disney.  My girls were (and still are) enthralled with It's A Small World.  The bright colors, the children singing - it just captivated them.  It's also a great opportunity to ride things like Haunted Mansion before they are old enough to develop fears.  I don't know if it's because they've been riding since they were babies or if we're just lucky enough to have fearless kids, but my girls have never expressed any concern over riding thing like this, yet every trip I see other children who are terrified.

    You also have a great chance of getting your daughter's picture taken with characters, which is really cute.  You could make it an annual event and have yearly pictures with Mickey to serve as a personalized growth chart!

     

    For most rides and attractions your daughter will be able to go right along with you.  For those with height restrictions, be sure to ask the Cast Member at the ride entrance for a switch pass.  This will allow you and your husband to take turns enjoying the ride and minimize your wait time while you do it.

    As far as the ticket is concerned, your daughter will be free!  Under 3 are admitted without charge, giving you one more great reason to go now.

    Have a great vacation!
