hmm im not sure, i think it probably depends more on the child and less on their age. If i had to pick i would say 10ish, id want my child to be old enough to remember and enjoy the vacation if it was going to be a one time only thing

I'm not one to ask, I took my 7 month old to Disney last year. That was a major vacation for us, we hadn't gone anywhere in 10 years before that.

I'm 28 and my first vacation was my honeymoon

But I agree its better they remember it, although seeing pictures of an infant are cute! And usually you don't have to pay (or at least get a discount) under a certain age. I'd say maybe 6 or 7? Who knows, I may change my mind by the time Cam gets there

6 I think, so they'd remember it.

My youngest is 7, and we're going on a big road trip. I hope she'll remember it.

What are you going to Europe for? That's so exciting!!!! I bet Kyren would love to go. I remember things that happened to me at 7/8 so I would totally vote yes

I would say yes!

We took Alyssa and Rylan to Disney just before Sophia was born (so they were 2.5 and 4) and they still talk about it!

We took the kids to Disneyland but that is more of a kids place. I think Kyren would be more interested in the history than Teagan would be

Any age to travel.

But for a special trip? We are waiting until Theo is 5 before we take him to England to visit my Grandma. It isn't cheap and I would like for him to remember it.

My Mum took me and also my brother Max to England when we were close to 2 so her Mum could see us but we don't remember it.

You should definitely take Tyren. She will remember it.

Where are you going in Europe? And what will you be doing? (allow us some vicarious living through you )

I'd take both if I were you.

We will be going to Denmark again because we have family there(long story but we have found my fathers 1st and 2nd cousins there that no one knew about). We will be going to Norway for the first time. And that's all we know for now. We will go and see where we end up
