  • I would say the best time is during the school year when kids are in school. Shorter lines. 4 is a good age. I remember my parents taking me when I was about that age, then we went a few more times over the years, until I was about 16.

  • We took my children when they were 4 and 7, and the 4 year old got very tired. With a child of that age you should plan on shorter days and extra rests. Or a long nap or quiet time in the afternoon before going out again in the evenings.

  • I want my kids to remember it, but I don't want them to be bored...also I want them to be old enough to do the activities, not just sit in the stroller all day.

  • We took our kids last year at ages 3 and 5 and they had a blast. They are still begging to go back. We took a stroller to use when one of them got tired, but used it only a little. We stayed ALL DAY LONG for 2 days and they did great.

  • I think 4 is a good age to start. Most of the kids that go before that do not have memories of the trip.

  • I started going to Disney World the year it opened. I was young, but have such fond memories! I've probably been there 100 times in my life. In 2 weeks, I'm taking my 5 year old! Can't wait! I think 4 and up is a great age for them.

  • We just got back from Disney World! Our 2 kids are 4 1/2 and 14 months! They both loved it! I know my 14 month old will not remember, but she had a blast and have wonderful pictures! My 4 year old son loved it! Um, we went January 24-31st. The crowds were low and the weather was beautiful! I would suggest January!
