Disney here we come!

The question is when.

Our daughter is five and we've always said that she needs to be big enough to go on the rides by herself when we make the trek back to the Happiest Place on Earth. In the summer she'll be almost six and I'm sure big enough for at least the kiddie rides. BUT...she's not just a kiddie ride gal, now is she?

So the question we take her when she could at the pinnacle of her Disney love? Or do we wait another year or two so she take better advantage of Disney's offerings?

I didn't get to Disney until I was 10 and loved it. Yes, I missed out on a few kiddie rides, but I did get to ride the roller coasters unlike my younger sisters.

We also wanted to wait until she could remember her trip. It's not like we're going to go every year.

In the meantime, we're saving up our pennies (or rather Senor Feminista is) and I guess we'll figure it out sooner or later.

My advice? Take a look at the height requirements on the website and see if she is tall enough to ride most of the big attractions. She may or may not be interested in the kiddie rides anyways by this age.

She'll love it. And she'll remember it. And you'll love it because she loves it. I'm telling you, Disney is a million times more magical for the parents -- becuase you get to watch your kid get caught up in it all.

Just wear comfy shoes. And bring pain reliever. Trust me, you'll need it.

I've been to Disney 3 times in the past 5 years. And I LOVE love it. And I've thrown around for some time about bringing Isabelle...but I think I am going to wait a few more years (even though I totally don't want to) because I want her to be able to go on the really cool rides with me (since I'm assuming it will just be me and her.) I think she probably has another year or so (and she's pretty tall for her age) until she's at that height.....

SO that's my take on it...and let me know when you're going....I'll help out :)

Despite all my anti-princess rants and my disgust for princess pink, I love Disney World and can't wait to take the kid. It's all a matter of timing so we all get the most of it. Plus she'd never let me forget it if she couldn't go on the roller coasters with me.

They seem to be offering really enticing deals for 2009, so you might be able to stretch the senor's hard-earned pennies a bit longer.

She you will so many photos and videos from the trip that it will be unforgettable in some sense.
