What age is the earliest do you think a child would likely be able to enjoy Disney Paris?

Oyrs were 5&7 and they loved it but found it tiring. They were asleep by 7.30 (and we didn't see the fireworks!

We are going in July 🥰 we have been a few times with ds1 but this will be ds2's first visit and he is nearly 4. Although he is nearly 4 we will be taking a pushchair!! Ds 2 will be there on his 11th birthday this year and he's really looking forward to it. There's plenty there for bigger kids - Star Wars, and super hero stuff as well as some of the bigger rides.

Really! @Aroundtheworldin80moves I was thinking of taking a 2 year old there. Probably out the picture then! 😂😂

Sounds amazing. I'm convinced to wait now so they can enjoy the larger attractions!

I used to go to disneyland Paris regularly (I lived nearby) and it taught me never to take a baby/toddler! The amount of stressed out parents with buggies and screaming babies or tots was staggering. It really put me off! I'm waiting until mine are at least 7ish before I attempt it.

There’s enjoy ,then enjoy and remember.
5 is about right for the first, 7 for the second.

We first took DD when she was 5 and DS1 was 5 months. We’ve been every year since. He really enjoyed it when he was 2/3

I brought DD1 at two and she absolutely loved it. Just back from a recent trip and DD2 who was two when we were there is now obsessed with wanting to go back

Our youngest was 3 and really enjoyed it. He was still going on the rides until they closed at 9.30/10 ish and then stayed awake to watch the fireworks :) he fell asleep in the car on the way back to the holiday cottage at about midnight!

I guess you need to think is this a one off or would you return?
I'm sure a 3yo would enjoy it, but if only going once I'd wait a few years.

I think its less tiring for the younger ones in pushchairs than the slightly older ones walking. A toddler will definitely enjoy it in a different way.

We took dd at 4 and she absolutely loved it. We'd been to a couple of more local theme parks - Peppa pig World, Chessington etc to understand her capacity to queue etc. We also took a buggy which was very needed. We went twice that year (got an annual pass) and aim to go when dd2 is a simillar age.
