I'm thinking three, some others are saying five. I want him to be able to do the age appropriate rides, of course, and he's going to be taller, so I don't have to worry about that.

I'm waiting until my son turns 3.

He's somewhat tall for his age, and we went to a carnival the other week, and there were 3 rides he could do. Out of about 20.

Sure, he might start waning on the Mickey Mouse insanity, but that might be a good thing.

So, with the girlfriend's kids...  Her youngest one managed to figure out that he can do the Swanton Bomb off of his playpen onto his big brother.

This is going to be a long childhood.

If I could get cable, I'm sure my son would be the same way. He's already "scaling the walls" of his play-pen, lord only knows what he would pick up from watching some of the high fliers of WWE.

My son has taken to spending a good portion of his day with his tongue hanging out of his mouth and i've started calling him Hacksaw xander when he does such which gets a wierd look from his mother who doesn't get the refrence.

As for the disney question?  If I can toss my non parental 2 cents...  I'd say old enough that they'll remember.  I was 7 on my first trip, and remember almost everything to this day.  I went back with my aunt/uncle/cousin when I was 13.  My cousin was a little younger 5 or 6 on my 2nd trip... He was uber obsessed with the characters and getting their autographs.  He didn't want to do anything else. 

I feel like 3 is too young.  I feel like 5 or 6 would be right in the wheel house.

On Disney World... I am waiting until the youngest is 7 or 8. The reason is because I dont want to go there and have them be turned away from things like the Rockin' Roller Coaster and Space Mountain. My kids are pretty adventurous and would be pissed if they couldn't ride some of the faster rides. Besides, Islands of Adventure is a ton of fun, and a must stop when in Orlando... and they would really want to ride Spider man.

So, we are saving the pennies now in anticipation of going in a couple of years.
