IMO - 8ish so the can ride all the rides. We went to Disneyland for our honeymoon and saw tons of toddlers there, usually crying. It's very overwhelming and overstimulating for young ones. Plus if you have to go back to your hotel for naps and earlier bedtimes cause super young kids can't be up super late and still be pleasant, you may not get your money's worth.

I think over the age of 4 is a good age at least so they actually know where they are. I know of people who run when there youngest can barely walk yet and I honestly don't see the point in that.

My son was 3 1/2 when he first went and absolutely loved it. He's now 6 and can still tell you everything about the trip but I know that's not normal. We won't be going back for another year and a half when my daughter is 3 1/2-4 by then he'll be able to go on the rides.

I would think when they can really make memories out of it, and ride some of the rides. Any age over 5?? When my daughter turns 4, and my son will be 8, that is probably when we will go.
