That all depends on the height on your children - the magic points are 40" and 44".

The youngest might benefit from the extra growth time - Although our DD reached 40" before her 3rd Birthday but she is almost the 98th percentile for height

I have my pot too! Bought it earlier this month - makes things feel real doesn't it?

Regarding ages and rides - when we went we had one child big enough for everything, two big enough for most, and one almost two year old who couldn't go on much at all. We found that actually, the middle two didn't want to go on much, even rides they were big enough for, if they looked exciting/scary.
But that wasn't an issue! We did everything that was to be done while there, and I'm sure we could have spent days without a single ride at all and still had a blast. So many characters, so much to see and do... Plus the rider swap tickets are fantastic - it meant our oldest child got to go on most things twice!

Which pot did you go for?

I've told DH I want that terramundi florida fund pot someone linked to the other day for my birthday.

Whatever age they go there will be something for them.

My DD saw the paediatrician today - she was seven last week and is 134.5cm - 99.6th centile.

I do wonder if the frequent trips to the sunshine state have helped - she grew 2cm on our last trip in only 2 weeks.

I actually bought my 1st pot today and its a Disney terrimundi pot it is red with a black mickey head and says Disney fund on it!!!

I searched and searched for one I really loved and although I wanted a large one they only had the regular size one
I nearly got the make a wish pot but was just too tempted by this one! When I fill this one ill just buy another & go on like that lol

Im also hoping it will help me lose a few lbs that I put on when I was sick and on opiates that made me crave suger! So now everytime I reach for the ice-cream or cream cakes at the shop ill put the money on the pot instead! Hopefully ill feel proud and keep doing it haha

I think the one tinkerpea bought is the one I want.... If so, it's from Temptation Gifts, and is called the 'Disney Fund Money Pot', last time I looked I'm sure it was about £20!

Anyone need the link? I can never remember if we're allowed to post links, but I can PM it?
