  • I was 7 and don't remember much from that trip. I went again at 12 and remember much more of that trip, but living in Orlando most of memories of trips in the last 15 years all run together.

  • I would say 2 and up. They are too young before 2 to enjoy the park.

  • we just took our 4 year old in november, but it was at night time for Mickeys Christmas Celebration. She had a great time, and we had planned to ride the rides but honestly all the other stuff that was going on was a lot and adding the rides in wouldve been too much for her. we plan to take her again for her 5th birthday, just a special day with mommy & daddy. i wouldnt have taken her before 4, though.

  • 4 years old. I live near Disney and go often. It is a mistake to take them too young. I always see lots of parents with little ones sleeping in strollers, or screaming, because it is just too much for them.

  • I don't know, 5? It's a BIG park, and the younger kids get so tired.

  • my girls are now 9,7, and 6 and went even when two to three years old and enjoyed it. But wil try again next year when they are older. I am an adult and even still love disneyland it is something you never out grow. I would just say when they can walk on their own so do not have to push a stoller all day long.
