Ok… so I’ve had a lot of friends ask me about doing Disneyland with a toddler. It seems like a lot of people out there want to go but they’re worried that their kiddos are too young and that it will be a waste/not worth it.
WELL – I am all about Disney at any age. This was actually our second trip with Peyton to Disneyland in the last year. We took her for 1 day when she was 13 months old, and this time we went for 2 days (she’s now 20 months old).
Earlier this month we took a long weekend trip to Southern California and spent 2 days at Disneyland, below is some advice about what worked for us. I also shared the first part of our trip here.
My first few tips are in regards to planning your days. I read some different blog posts about advice for doing Disney with young kids, and a few of them had literal excel spreadsheets planning out their routes, rides, and dining. More power to you if that’s your style, but that would definitely NOT work for us. Here is what DID work for us.
Overall I don’t think it is a waste at all to take a young child to Disneyland. You can have an amazing time if you go in to it with the right attitude. I also am a big Disneyland fan anyways, I have lots of great memories from family trips there when I was growing up and it has been so fun to start building those memories with P! Let me know if I missed any great tips/ideas that you know about below and if you have any questions send them my way!
