  • My son was 6 years old the first time he went to see a movie. One of the reasons was because we didn't want to expose him to noise that was that loud (theaters are horribly loud sometimes) Just to mention it.... I have heard (from more than one source) that The Princess & the Frog has some fairly creepy/scary parts in it. One of my friends used the word "disturbing"

  • nope I do not think she is old enough. I get so frustrated when people bring their little kids to see a movie because it disrupts the whole movie for everyone else. My son is 14 months and I wouldn't even think about taking him to a movie. Kid's don't have a long enough attention span for a movie in a theater until they are at least 3. But that's my opinion

  • I would go to a matinee if your gonna go. My son as the attention span of a goldfish... LOL If that long, he won't sit and watch anything. But if your gonna take her, take her when not that many people will be there.

  • My daughter was only a couple months old.. if that when we went to the movies with her.. she slept through it... I think depending on how old your daughter acts.. and how well behaved she is and if she's willing to watch it .. then she's old enough .. but she still won't get the concept or even understand the movie .. it would be more for you.. maybe get a coat on and go for a walk or something? or try one of those indoor play places like at mcdonalds or something?
