We're thinking of taking a mini-vacation to the Lancaster/Hershey area sometime this summer (mid-week to avoid major crowds). We have a 17 month old (in August when we'd probably go she'll be 18 months). She LOVED our trip to Disneyland earlier this year, but we don't know much about Hershey Park and Dutch Wonderland. I wouldn't expect them to be like Disneyland, but would she enjoy herself? It seems like DW caters to young kids, but can kids that young really go on a lot of rides? Would she have to go by herself or could we go with her? What about Hershey Park? Both sites look like they have a lot of rides for her size (under 36 inches), but they don't give major descriptions of what the rides are actually like. We did do Chocolate World with her last summer, and she enjoyed that as much as anyone would expect a 6 month old to. :o) My husband went to HP as a kid, but I've never been, and neither of us have been to DW.
Any suggestions as to if these would be fun places for our family?
If they would, any great suggestions for places to stay? We'd prefer a "two room" kind of suite (we normally do Homewood or Embassy Suites) so we don't have to whisper after our daughter goes to sleep, and I need internet so I can work while we're away (boo! but we need to be able to afford the trip, ha!). Thanks so much for your help!!
