My best friend was in a similar situation with her almost 2 yr old twins. She first tested them with costumed characters to see how they did--one was good and one was not so good. She then took them to a place with rides so she could see how they would do. Again, one was good and one was not so good until he saw how much fun his sister was having. So if you are unsure, perhaps try her one of those  More...
How old is your daughter? Most if not all people here will tell you to make the trip lol - missmimi90  1398.9 #92 5:52PM

She's just over 2 - I kinda thought the same thing, likely most people on here would say go for it - just wondering what comments (good or bad) people might have for me! - littlebitofpixiedust  81.4 #3654 5:56PM
Well she is free until age 3 so if this is something that will occur prior to her birthday, there's that to consider. I hope someone with children that age can assist you further. - missmimi90  1398.9 #92 6:16PM
We took both our girls before they were two. Just be prepared to do things at a slower pace than if it were just you two. Get there early, when park opens and hit Fantasyland. Familiarize yourself with the Baby Center on Main Street. It's a great place to change a diaper with a little more privacy than a restroom gives. Enjoy rides like its a Small World, Pirates and even the Haunted Mansion. She should be too young to be scared of the Haunted Mansion, and should enjoy the boat rides. Bring snacks, change of clothes, and head back to your room early or find a quiet place if your baby can nap in her stroller. Have fun!!  And make sure to get her a First visit button at City Hall! - MeridaFan  3404.9 #27 6:05PM
If anything, think how special it will be to have pics of her at that age at DL :)  She will love looking at then when she's older.   We have a great one of my husband at about 3 years and his grandpa (who sadly passed when my husband was a teen), and Brer Bear, who ruffled his grandpa's hair in the pic, lol.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  535.2 #329 10:30PM
Is there an option to bring the in-laws or at least one?  Personally, I would love the flexibility to enjoy a little one to one Disney time with my wife, especially if going to be a similar 3 year wait until the next...... Which ever way you decide, goodluck 👋👋 - RapunzelledColey  58.1 #4123 11:25PM

File for unemployment right away. Processing times are quick right now.
Keep your head up. I know it seems hard at the time, but most people that get laid off end up finding a better job. So the short term it's tough, but long term it ends up for the better. Think of it as a forced promotion. - DLKenCA  1580.1 #82 8:54PM

This reminds me of the time that I really wanted a beer at the beer cart in DCA but there was a huge line of people wanting beer also so I went to  Flos diner and got a racer 5 instead and taakaaaked at the people standing next to the bathroom for no reason but to be annoying. it was at this time that I realized that I should become an astronaut and open up a In In Out on the moon - Dave  11400.3 #2 12:31PM

My parents had the bottle of champagne package sent for my bday. It was a pretty awesome treat to share.
We did the in room birthday celebration package for my daughter's 4th bday pay year at PPH - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1394.8 #94 8:32PM
Did you think it was worth it? I want to do something fun for him! - Atora  2068.3 #56 8:34PM
For him I would say NO. We did the package that was around $200 which included a banner on the door then footprints on the floor inside the room but the gifts seem to be kid related. I can email you some pics if you DM me your email. It included a handheld sorcerer Mickey that spins & lights up, an autograph book, pen, a stuffed Mickey, a little light up lanyard that says Its My Birthday, birthday Mickey ears, a few other miscellaneous items. I would say spend it on concierge where you can get unlimited chocolate strawberries & that stuff instead - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1394.8 #94 8:45PM
Thanks for the great description UTDISNEYFAMILY.  Our comments must have just crossed.  I'm thinking of doing this for my daughter's 7th birthday at the end of the month. - Ldgsg  172.5 #2222 8:48PM

I remember the giant orange ball and have always thought of it as the James and the Giant peach ride. It was by the maliboomer and wod if memory serves me right.

There was a James and the Giant Peach. It was where the Silly Symphony Swings are, you would ride the same swings...just inside the great big peach. I have a picture of it on my phone....it was there in 2007, not sure of when it was replaced - 3kings4  145.4 #2632 10:01PM

I went this past year and it wasn't bad at all. It was super hot though for February.
A list of pros and cons can be made about any particular time to visit the park!  The parks are busy - because they are wonderful and loved by many!  One of my most delightful trips was during this same week, a few years ago.  Any crowdedness issues can be overcome with some planning for the busiest parts of the day and a positive attitude!  Start making your plans for those times: eat a sit down meal, watch a show, take the circle tour on the train, catch a nap or a swim...  Once you are in the park you will be swept up in the moment, and the joy of being there will make the crowds seem totally manageable!   - DreadPiratesRogers  807.6 #192 9:17AM
Thank you so much for the tips! We will just be sure to get there first thing in the morning, I'm sure it's less crowded then! - charlottebug07  4.4 #17997 9:25AM
My same tip for everybody: Go early, get FP's and then ride rides. You can do more in the first 2 hours than you can all day while people are shopping and eating.  - ShariRenee  4201.0 #21 9:30AM
Yes the holiday stuff is over by then. I've heard it is really crowded since the school by me have the week off and I believe Utah has it off for 'ski week' or something like that. But if it's the only time you can go, then go and have fun! - brodysmommy  337.3 #624 6:52AM
Somehow I've missed Ski week for 16 years.  Feeling kind of gypped!  That's some prime Disney vacation time there.  😉 - TiggersAndTinks  111.7 #3205 9:19PM
Yeah, no such thing as ski week. Idaho gets out for Spud Harvest, but that's in October. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  622.7 #274 9:21PM
Wow!!  Must be so exciting after 5 years!! Fast Pass, Single Rider and the fact DCA can now ease some DP crowds, will all help to still make it a fabulous trip!!  😀😀👍👍 - RapunzelledColey  58.1 #4123 1:52AM
We went that weekend last year and it was pretty crazy especially on Valentines day, which will be falling on a Saturday next year that same weekend. We waited over 2 hours to have dinner and most places were booked up for the night. So my advise would be to make dinner reservations ASAP.
