  • [Question] Is 14 months too young to really enjoy it?

    We're planning to bring my son ( currently 14 months ) to DisneyWorld this year.

    Is 14 months too young to really enjoy it?

    My 16 month old loves going to Disneyland. At that age, you just have to exercise a little moderation. After a few hours, the kid is going to be tuckered out. If you're going to Disney World in the summer, the heat and humidity will not make stroller life very enjoyable, but if you going in winter or spring, it could be plenty of fun for the baby. The lights and smells and sounds are great. For some kids, the characters are awesome (for others, they are just scary things to freak out over), and many of the rides are a blast. You can't do all the same things you can do without the baby, of course, but you'll make some big, big smiles while you're there.

      I'm sure a 14 month year-old will enjoy it, and I'm sure it will be wonderful spending time in WDW as a family, making some memories, getting some great photos, etc.

      Having said that, a 14 month won't necesscarily understand or appreciate WDW more than a trip to the mall, or a nice hotel, or a lesser amusement park.

      Since having a baby at WDW will affect how much you see and do, you may wish to consider whether it's worth it.

      Is visiting WDW a rare occurance for you? If you had saved up for several years, for example, to visit WDW, I'd be more likely to recommend leaving the baby at home. Why shell out a lot of money, and then get less bang for your vacation buck, because you're tending to an infant who doesn't know the difference between WDW and Six Flags?

      If you're a more regular visitor, I'd be more likely to say go for it. What you miss out on this time, you'll catch next time when your child is older.

      I don't think there's a wrong choice. There's pros and cons to bringing a young child to WDW. Do what makes sense to you.

        They will enjoy it in the moment...they will not remember it.

          It's a long way to go. Is this the only child, or are there others?

                Nope! They won't remember it...but there could be (fond) residual memories that could be triggered if you go at a later time. I think it's always best to expose kids to new experiences...especially the FUN ones.
                If you think you can handle the stress of traveling with a toddler (eek!), then go for it! You will have a chance to do different and new things together and that is worth it, IMO.

                Have fun!

                  My son has been going to Disneyland since he was 7 months old. He doesn't remember the early trips, but he enjoyed them at the time. He's taken a lot of plane flights, car trips, even duck-boat tours. He's usually been a very good traveler and enjoyed himself. It probably helped that he was used to traveling at a very young age.

                  Be prepared with all the usual accoutrements that go along with a toddler, and don't be schedule-intensive, because that usually doesn't work with a little one. Other than that, have a great time! The pictures are priceless and he will treasure them someday.

                    My daughter was 2 yrs old when she 1st went to Disneyland. When visiting Your Disney Getaway - Disneyland with Kids | Family I feel your never too old or too young. Take your little one.

                      Although he won't remember it, he'll definitely enjoy it!! My son was 18 months when we first took him to Disneyland, and my daughter was 12 months on her first trip. They both had a blast!! Loved the characters, the carousels, Dumbo, trains, it's a small world, although neither of them cared for the dark rides at that age. It was so much fun...totally worth it!

                      Also, the Child Swap feature still allowed my husband and I to enjoy our favorite attractions
