Works For Me Wednesday

Many of my friends have asked my opinion about what I think is the "perfect" age to visit Walt Disney World for the first time. This is really hard to answer because every child is different and of course what may work for one child may not for another. (I learn this lesson every day when dealing with my 5 and 7 year old--they are SO different!)

With that said, there is a specific age that really does come to mind for me as the absolute best time to take a child to Disney World for the first time. That age is right before the child's 3rd birthday.

The main reason that I say to do it before the child turns 3 is because they will be FREE to get into the parks up until that point! If you really want to make it memorable, you could plan the trip a few days before the birthday so that your child will be able to celebrate in the "happiest place on earth". There is no better place to have a birthday!

Other reasons why waiting until about 3 is recommended:

  • Most kids are potty trained by that age (not all, but most) so you will not have to deal with changing diapers and carrying around all the gear that it entails.
  • Kids who are around 1 or 2 can sometimes be afraid of the characters, but by around 3 they really begin to warm up to them and enjoy interacting with them.
  • On the same note, this age group will be completely caught up in all of the magic of Disney. Let me just tell you--to see the look on your child's face when they see their favorite princess or character in "real" life is something that you will never forget.
  • They will be more likely to try the rides. And there are so many for them to ride at this age. The best part is that parents and children ride together. It is fun for all ages.
  • Although they will still need time to rest/nap, they will have the stamina to go longer than toddlers a few years younger.

So that is my Works for me Wednesday Tip. To see more tips, visit Shannon's blog.

Great tip. I never thought of all those great reasonings before and I'll definitely be remembering them when it's time for me to take little ones to see the magic of Disney ;) Have a great Wednesday! =)

Great tip! We may be going to Disney world through the make a wish for Izzy... I am excited to go!

Great tip! I think you could probably use bribery with the potty-training. "If you are going in the big toilet without any accidents we can go to Disneyland for your birthday!" Hmmm... I really like this idea. Thanks!

Skin nеeds conѕtаnt cleanіng, and that's exactly why we take a bath, or at least a shower, everyday. Collagen cannot work if applied topically because its molecules are too large to be penetrated by the skin. Even with all of the skin-care products on the market, skin Care can be cheap yet effective.

I personally didn't buy an organic bassinet mattress because my model came with the non-organic variety. You can choose to purchase complete infant bedding sets, which include the fitted sheet, quilt and other accessories to enhance the beauty of the room. And as a parent, it is only natural that you find the perfect bassinet mattress for your baby.
