We have been taking our DD since she was about 2 and 1/2 and she loved it and continued loving it. Her memories are vague about the early trips but her remembrance of loving them never stopped. Our memories of those early trips are priceless to us. As stated before, you really will take things on their terms as you go through the parks. Slow and steady with time off for naps worked well for us. Our first character meal was the Minnie and friends at the Plaza and the pictures I have from that are priceless to me. She loved dancing with Minnie and Tigger.
