    While we welcome children ages 4 and up at the time of travel to discover the stories of the world with us, we recommend that children be at least 6 years old at the time of travel on our Adventures by Disney London Short Escape. This is based on several factors, such as flight time and jet lag, time zone differences in the destination, extended hours of daily activity programming, number of internal transports between experiences, potential for extreme temperatures in the summer months, and amount of physical activity involved. Because each child is different, please call us at (800) 543-0865 to discuss whether this is the right trip for your kids.
