  • I had a similar experience with my two year old. Was at the park from 11-7, no nap-and she did fine (our one year old was fine, too) .there was so much stimulation and things to do it kept her awake, she didn't want to rest..though the two year old did need a "down" day the next day (so did I). I had taken them another time, from 10-2, which seemed more manageable, and she didn't need that recovery day afterwards.

  • It depends on her tolerance for that much activity, how rested she is before you go, how likely she is to nap... lots of things.
    I took mine to Disneyland last year just after she turned 2. She loved it. We arrived shortly after the park opened and left about 7pm - stopping to have dinner with some friends on the way out of the park. We weren't in the car headed home until 9. She had no nap during the day (she won't nap unless she is in her bed) and plenty of activity. She did very well though it took her several days to recover.

  • We're getting ready to take my dd to Kings Island next month for the day but we're not going to make her walk it's kind of an early birthday present she'll be 3 in Spetember! But we are also going to take lots of sun screen and but my dd is used to being out for a long period of time we go to the malls all the time with my parents and I know it'll be ok but I really think it depends on the child and my dd will get to nap the ride there and sleep the ride home
