I think unless you plan on taking him again he is to young. He will not remember it and may be overwhelmed.

As someone who went with her 3yo sister to Disney World many years ago, I can tell you its going to be very difficult.

The long lines, its hot outside, etc.  How do you plan to keep your toddler occupied while in the line?  And besides, many of the rides are either "too big" or "too scary".  I'd wait a few more years.

It would be more of a trip for you than for her.

I personally wouldn't because its so expensive....but a friend of mine used to buy yearly passes & bring her kids - 2 years apart, starting at age 1 - to Disney a few times a year (they had friends in the area so free nighttime accommodations). They went until their kids were 5 & 7 & too involved in sports to have time to go......

 personally, i wouldn't.  unless you live in the state, i wouldn't pay that kind of money for a trip he won't really fully enjoy yet.  i would give it until about 4ish but that's just me.

I personally think 3 and over is a better age.  Buut 3 is still iffy. 5 is a prime age though.

He's still too young. He won't remember anything and won't be able to ride too many rides either. My parents took me when I was 4 and even at that age I don't remember a thing about it.

At 2, my DD said she want to ride rides but when it came to getting on them she flipped. She did like tea cups (with no extra spinning) and I think she would have liked Small world but we didn't get there. And, she really needed a nap midday. My 3 yo niece did great. So, honestly, I would wait a year.

I've taken my kids every year since we moved 14 hours away from Disneyland a few years ago. My youngest was one and my oldest two the first time we went. Every year (including the first) my girls had an absolute blast. Their reactions as toddlers/preschoolers are wonderful to watch, because they truly believe they're meeting these characters and that it's all real.

Will they remember their first trip as adults? No. But they had fun in the moment and that's important too. :)

And almost all the rides do not have an age/heigh limit. So there would be plenty for him to do. A lot of people I know are concerned that their toddlers won't be able to go on much.
