Disneyland is great. There is no doubt. Its universe of magic, color and light falls in love with young and old alike. But to fully enjoy that enchanted kingdom, it is better to plan the trip in detail or else that dream scenario can turn into a nightmare. The first question you will have to ask yourself is what is the best age to take your child to Disneyland.
Traveling to Disneyland with a baby?
It is not an impossible mission, although not recommended. You can bring your own stroller to move around the park without problems or you will even have the option of renting strollers or chairs for larger children at the entrance.
However, just because Disneyland makes it easy for parents with babies to stay doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to go with them. Your baby will not enjoy much and, if he is one of those little ones who get nervous with noise, it is definitely not a recommended trip.
However, if you have an older child and you don’t want to wait, you can travel to Disneyland Paris with your baby without problems. Later, when he grows up, you can plan another getaway to enjoy the attractions of the park.
From what age do children begin to enjoy Disneyland?
Every kid is a world. Every family too. But in a general sense, the little ones will be able to enjoy Disneyland when they start to watch TV and recognize the Disney characters. Therefore, the ideal age to plan the first trip could be around 2 and a half or three years. If we take into account that children under three years old do not pay admission, the argument is even more compelling.
Actually, this stage is magical to plan the trip to Disneyland because children have not yet lost their illusion and many believe that Mickey or Minnie are real. They will be very excited to find and embrace the cartoons they have seen on television. When they grow up, seeing these characters won’t have the same impact.
It is true that at that age some children will not want to enter many of the attractions and for others they do not even have the required height, but you can enjoy other attractions designed for the little ones, take the opportunity to collect autographs and photos of their favorite characters or enjoy of the famous Disney parades where all the characters that your child has seen on TV come together in one place. More than one child gets very excited, claps and screams with happiness.
