Our DD was 2.5 years old when we first went...She's now 9 years old and still loves it all,as for the characters she still loves having her picture taken with them,and spotting them around the parks.
Our other DD turned 3 last year out there and she just loved it,she adored everything

I also agree with the school comment,its great to go before they start school

I personally think 2 upwards is a great (starting Disney age)

I think it really depends on how much you want that child to remember that trip.

My lads were 7 and 5 on their first trip and can only remember bits about it though they do have the feeling they had a fantastic time, they are 20 and 18 now. I think if you look back at your own childhood memories you will just remember bits and pieces of the different holidays. Lasting full memories of a holiday would only happen when the child was older.

With children you enjoy doing different things with them as they reach different ages. Orlando is no different. Go now and you experience it at a different level than you would in a few year's time as that child's desires change.

So for a lasting memory if an once in a lifetime trip is planned go when the child is older. If you plan to visit a few times, as I think you are planning, as the child gets older go whenever you want.

What I would also add is life is short, if you can and want to do something just go ahead and do it now.

I would just add that with the invention of camcorders I think it's easier for children to remember holdays etc.

My 2 are always watching the camcorder especially our trip to DLRP and I think this really helps. I'm sure when they're much older and watch the tapes it will jog their memories and they will remember much more than just talking about past trips.

Possibly but in any case, I fancy digging my old camcorder tapes out and watching them, thanks for the reminder. I always remember videoing MK fireworks and in the background my youngest son then 7 is shouting 'I love you Mummy'.
