The perfect age for Disney World


When the invitation to go to Disney arrived, we were pretty darn excited. And then worried. Are the girls too old? Too young? Will they enjoy it? Will they be miserable off their schedules?

Turns out? Nope, nope, and nope!

A 15 month old riding on the Pooh ride? So perfect I can’t even explain it. Sometimes, I thought she was having the most fun of all of us. Safari, Pooh, Peter Pan. She was a rockstar. Naps in the Ergo on my back. Late, late naps in the hotel and even later bed times.

Seriously, there really is something for everybody at Disney World, from grandparents (you’re welcome for not putting your ages out there), to a trying to learn how to walk 15 month old! It really is perfect!

As participants in the Disney Social Media Moms Conference 2013 we paid our conference fee, which included hotel accommodations, park tickets, meals, and other gift items. I was not required, or asked, to write about the conference, events, or speakers. The honest opinions are my own and that of my family.

  12. Yes! Everyone experiences Disney just a bit differently, and that’s part of the reason it appeals to so many. Your girls were all smiles every single time we ran into each other. Your parents looked so happy to be there, too. And Matt’s perception of the rides was so much fun to hear. I’m waiting on his blog post about the rides 😉

  13. so glad yall are having fun! We went for Broxtons first trip when Marc got back from afghanistan… he was a little over 1, then we had the boys with us and they were 9,11 and 13 🙂

  14. How wonderful! I love all of the pics. Your mom looks so young…like your sister! What fun you all had together. What a blessing. Hugs, Lura

  15. Looks like an amazing trip! We’ve been to Disneyland with our son twice but haven’t been to Disney World with him yet.

  16. I agree that any age is the perfect age. We’re going in the fall and Nick will be 2.5. People always think it’s crazy to take one that young, but I know he’ll have a blast, and even though he won’t remember it I will.

  17. hubby and I challenge each other on the buzz ride all the time. Love it! 🙂

    We went in October and overall I think my 2 year old had more fun than the 7 year old.

  21. love all the fun in this post friend.

    between you and laura, i seriously have to get this booked!

  22. We are trying to decide if we should go this summer (our youngest is 2). I know that the “old folks” in the family (hubby and me) would have a great time… but is 2 too young? Probably not. 😀

  23. I totally agree that any age is the perfect age. Our kids have been at all stages of life and even while I was pregnant with them. It’s amazing what things they remember and even though they might not remember each trip my husband and I will have those memories. We got with my parents and my siblings a lot and it is great to see everyone interact with each other. It really is a magical place and my favorite place to be
