    im planning a disney world trip in november. my son will be 1 year old is that old enough to enjoy disney world

    Hi Bridget!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your son is at a great age for his first visit. My wife and I have taken our four children to Walt Disney World as infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. They've been able to enjoy the parks at various stages of their lives, and we've had wonderful experiences each time.

    Each of the four theme parks of the Walt Disney World Resort offer Slow Rides for Guests of all ages to enjoy. Most of these attractions should be fine for your 1-year-old, but use your best judgment. Cast Members at the ride entrances can answer any specific questions you have before boarding. Our youngest daughter was only 5-months-old during our visit last December, and we took her on several of the attractions.

    For a convenient place to change and rest with your little one, visit the Baby Care Centers, located in all four theme parks. And for more advice, visit the Planning for Pre-School Kids & Little Ones page on Here you can discover tips and special offers designed for families with little ones. There is also a "Preschool Parent's Guide to Walt Disney World Resort" that you can download.

    Please feel free to send me any follow-up questions that you may have. I enjoy helping families plan their magical vacations with little ones.

    Have a magical day!
