We are watching home movies tonight and we picked out the time we went to DisneyWorld for Thanksgiving in 2000. This was our second trip to Disney. Whitney was 8 this time (first time she was 6). I believe that the time between 6-8 is the perfect time to go with a child. The sense of wonder in their eyes and enjoyment is so worth the money. We went for Christmas this last year and while we had an amazing time it was definitely different with a 16 year old. So for all you readers out there, I recommend the early elementary age for Disney. Of course, I'm thinking the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's look like good ages too.
