Aww this is wonderful.  I would highly suggest taking time for the flag retreat ceremony.  I think he will really enjoy seeing that when they honor all the service men and women. - Sarafina  421.5 #431 3-6-14 9:20AM Like(2)  Reply

walk on to space mountain. again broke down and waited while everyone else left

Love when that happens - april_december  299.3 #773 2-27-14 11:36AM Like  Reply
I am  always shocked when people leave because it usually doesn't take long for the rides to be fixed.  My family just smiles as everyone else passes us by to leave the line.  Especially if you waited an hour for a ride then it breaks down, what's another thirty minutes or less for them to fix it... - Thundermountaingal  10.9 #8164 2-27-14 11:59AM Like  Reply

I have been taking my daughter since three months. Lostgirl7988 has taken her son since two or three weeks. Honestly it's up to the parents. Make sure to set aside time for naps. Little Skipper loves Tiki Room and It's A Small World. She's undecided on Pirates and Peter Pan. She doesn't like Winnie the Pooh or Buzz Lightyear--those are way over stimulating for her.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  1895.6 #58 10-16-13 4:45PM Like  Reply
Took my mini at 11 months. Would have done it even sooner if we lived closer. Biggest thing was to make sure he still got his naps in. I definitely didn't get to go on as many rides/attractions, but I had much more time to people watch and enjoy all the little details!  - Geekery  401.4 #459 10-16-13 5:05PM Like  Reply
We took our youngest at 3 months, 5 months, 9 months & she will be with us this weekend. & again in 2 weeks before she turns 1yr so I think you'll be ok if I can fly with mine & bring her 5 times before 1yr  - UTDISNEYFAMILY  696.5 #201 10-16-13 5:17PM Like  Reply
