    We're traveling with a 3 1/2 year old princess. It's her first trip and we're wondering if she is too young. The remainder of the party consists of 8 Adults one of which is in a wheelchair. Are our expectations overly stretched?

    Hi Marilyn!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you're planning an unforgettable family vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! My most cherished vacations to Walt Disney World are the ones where my parents have come along to see the magic of Disney through my son's eyes. We've made the best memories together!

    In my opinion, your expectations aren't overly stretched at all! Walt Disney World Resort is filled with fun for all ages. The 3 1/2-year old princess traveling with you is traveling at the best age! Take a look at the list of attractions and their height requirements for all four theme parks in order to start planning which attractions the little princess will be able to ride! My son is 3 years old and his favorite attractions are Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo the Flying Elephant and "its a small world"! I recommend booking FastPass+, too!

    My son is also in a wheelchair, so I know what it's like traveling with an individual with mobility challenges. Walt Disney World Resort is the best vacation destination for accessibility needs! Are you staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel? If so, you'll love taking advantage of the complimentary Resort transportation. I love rolling my son onto the monorail or busses with ease!

    Marilyn, I'm so excited for your upcoming vacation! If you have any other questions, please come back and visit us again!
