We haven't been to a Disney park, but we have experienced the Moomin World (in Finland) with our girls first time when they were 5.5 and 4, and it worked out perfectly. We could see they had a magical experience. I would say that children below 3-4 usually get tired too quickly to get much out of such a day trip, and sometime around 7 the magical era is ...

My kids all did fine from about the age of 3. The only real way to know which movie to pick is by seeing what they like at home. My kids all have wildly different taste in movies, so usually I take them one at a time. Sometimes they get bored during exposition, but just require a quiet reminder from me. You can't really judge it by how much they sit ...

We bought our daughter twice to Hong Kong Disneyland, when she was 5 and 7. She cannot remember her first trip anymore, but can still remember the second trip fondly. (She's now 9.) Different children matures differently, but my daughter refused to go into Frontierland at 5 because it was decorated with the Pirates of Caribbean theme then. She was also very ...

If you must have separate viewing your simplest bet its to buy two DVD players. Your youngest should probably have a headrest screen, controlled from the front seat, but the elder one could cope just add easily with a laptop version. Also, when considering sound, your 6 year old should manage headphones but at 3, some do and some don't. Either way, ensure ...

I know I'm responding to this way late, but I have a different (and, in Torben's word, thorough) answer for you. ;-) Disney in particular actually has two "lands" that cater to younger ages and such a variety of rides that it really is fitting for almost any age. Between 2-4 fantasyland and (3-7) toon town are specifically geared for younger ages and if a ...

It depends on your child. My kids just love Disney films such as Cars, Dumbo, Robin Hood and Jungle Book, but if Malificent The Witch was the greeter at Disneyworld, they'd freak out and have nightmares for a week - there was one in our Disney store once and that scared the hell out of me.

My (then) three year old daughter loved watching the Wiggles on tv (and video - over and over and over!) so we thought a trip to see their live stage show would be a good treat. Wrong! She was terrified of the life-size costumes (Henry, Dorothy) to the point where I took her out. We peeked back in the door when it was just the Wiggles (people) onstage, ...

This varies so much from child to child I'm not sure their is a useful answer other than just to try them. In a worst case you will have wasted a few pounds/dollars/euro etc and have to leave early. My eldest enjoyed films from about 4, but my middle daughter was not a fan until she was about 6. I remember taking her about her fifth birthday and she ...

What age can you expect a child to happily sit through a movie It depends on how much media consumption they've been trained to handle. My 3½ year old watches about five minutes of TV per day, just one episode of Barbapapa before bed. He wouldn't last long in a cinema. On the other hand, some pre-schoolers spend between one and three hours per day in ...

How about double iPads/iPods? Might be cheaper than an actual embedded DVD player, and once you have the dvd's in iTunes then you don't have to worry about losing the disks. You can also take them into restaurants to get the kids to sit down and chill out if you're just at the end of your rope and can't manage wrangling both of them.
