If you’re taking a baby or toddler to Disney it can be a little overwhelming if you’ve never been and don’t even know what your babe can enjoy in the parks. I’ve been taking my oldest son to Disney World since he was a baby at 7 months old and never regretted it. He’s 8 years old now and it’s still his favorite place.
But I know what it feels like to be worried about taking a baby or toddler to Disney. What will it cost? Will they even remember it? What can they ride? Is this just going to be a disaster?
