We waited until our youngest was tall enough

to ride all the big rides. Space mountain and thunder mountain. I would have gone a few years earlier so ds who is in the middle could have gone when he was around 6or 7 but it just wasn’t affordable for our family of 5 to go when one parent and child would have to sit out of a lot of rides.

What do you all think is a good age for children to

experience Disney for the first time? When they will remember their time, and enjoy the rides and other attractions?
How much in advance can you plan and make payment arrangements on the trip?
Wanna take my Pinky… Don’t mind putting it on the books now for 2020 (or some other year) if Disney will let me. Especially if I can lock in today’s rates for future years trips.
