What age do you think is the best age for Disney World?
I would argue that EVERY age is the best age, but no age is perfect.
My children have been a variety of (young) ages as we’ve visited Disney World, and each visit I’ve seen the magical experience in a different way through their eyes.
Here are some things I would consider when deciding on the right age to take your child to Disney World:
- 1. Strollers: Strollers are not allowed in lines at Disney World. There are areas designated for stroller parking and everyone must leave their strollers in those areas. If your child falls asleep in the stroller, and you don’t want to wake them up to stand in line- you’re pretty much forced to wait.
- 2. Naps: Speaking of a sleeping baby, kids of all ages will really need a nap during a day at Disney World (and I’m speaking for adults too!) It actually works to your advantage if you have a child young enough to take a nap AT the park. Otherwise, you’re either forced to leave the park for a while for nap time, or you’ll be walking around with very grumpy children.
- 3. Free: Kids are free at Disney World up to age 3.
- 4. Height Requirements: At Disney World, most of the rides are geared towards children of any height. However, there are a few exceptions. Click here to see a list of all the Disney World rides and height requirements.
- 5. Character Fear: Some children will walk right up to any of the characters. For others, it’s not quite the magical moment of their parent’s dreams. If you are really hoping for some great character photos and interactions…you might want to do a test run before arriving at the park with high expectations!
What do you think is the best age for Disney World? What would you take into consideration when determining that age?
