When Did You First Visit Disney?


With schools' rolling spring breaks in full swing many families' thoughts turn to the magical world of Disney. Whether it be frolicking with the princesses, riding It's a Small World or taking pictures with Mickey and his pals, the Disney theme parks have caught the attention of youngsters and their parents for generations.

But with single day ticket prices costing as much as $68 per child – and that doesn't even include transportation to the parks and accommodations once you arrive – a trip to the land of the Mouse is hardly an inexpensive one. Given the costs, many families hold off on visiting the wonderlands until their children are old enough to enjoy the whole park, while others plan a trip as soon as their tots can utter the characters' names.

When did you first take your lil ones to a Disney resort?

I went when I was 8,10 and 14... My son just went in February- he was 9 months old, it was also my husband's first trip to Disney. It was a lot of fun but obviously our 9 month old wont remember or care- I just happened to be there for a business trip and baby and daddy decided to tag along!

We took our daughter when she was 4 mths. Yes I know too soon but we had other family going, and if I remember correctly she was free. Not much you can do there with an infant though.

I think I was around 9 or 10 when my mom and grandma took me and my brother to Euro Disney.

We're taking our son for the first time next month - for his second birthday. We used to live in SoCal and have many friends with kids who still live in that area and they've told us that 2ish is a great age to go for the first time. They won't remember the trip but they'll definitely enjoy their time there. Our son recognizes the characters and their voices (from listening to Disney music) and is very excited to go see where Mickey Mouse lives. Also, kiddos get in free thru their 3rd birthday so we're going now to save a little $$$$.

We live near dland and have a season pass. We've been taking our little one since he was six months old and now that he's 18 months old he just loves to run around the park.

We did Disney World as when I was 7 and my brother was 4. My folks were pretty adamant about us being out of strollers and being able to go on a couple of rides before taking us. I agree with this approach -- I've been to Disneyland bunches as an adult and always see babies and toddlers who are miserable (and the parents are too!). Hubs and I plan on holding off until our girl (or a younger sibling by that point) is at least 5.

I've only been to Disneyland once. I was 12. It was ridiculously awesome! I'd like to take Liz when she's a little younger, when she can really enjoy everything without feeling self-conscious as most adolescents do.

I was around 4... but I live in Florida, so it's not as expensive. I've been probably 20 times, probably half the time with my kids, and the last time was last year. :)

I've never been! We just didn't do things like Disney when I was a child (we took trips elsewhere that my parents felt would "enrich" us). I cannot wait to take my daughter, though. She's only 2, so probably in about 3 years we'll both take our first Disney trips.

I didn't go until I was an adult. I think it was 8 years ago now and I have been four times since. We will probably be taking our little one next year before she is two years old.

i don't have children yet, but my parents didnt take me until I was 5. old enough to ride the kiddie rides and really understand the characters. i think i will do the same with my children.
