Looking to spend a weekend with wife and 16 month old, possibly in Hershey park. We have never been before and not sure if our toddler would appreciate Hershey at such a young age.

Does anyone think we should go? If so, do you recommend any good hotels or fun resorts? We don't mind spending a bit of money for 2 nights.

Thanks.!

Hershey Park also owns Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster, which seems to cater more to the toddler/stroller crowd. Hershey Park generally suited to older kids (school age through adult). Lines are long, lots of walking.

Have you thought about Sesame Place instead? Your toddler would appreciate it more as it's geared more for the younger set...and I think it's fairly near Easton, PA, where the Crayola facotry is. It's closer to Philly, so the other side of the state, but I think Hershey may be too much for a 16 mo old. My kids are 4 and 5, and we're going to Hershey for the first time this Friday, and we only live an hour away.

Sesame Place - where Sesame Street comes to life.

I would agree that Hersheypark and Chocolate World are probably better to wait until maybe age 4.

I agree with teachbeach - Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster would be a much better choice for a 16mo. old. Our grandson, who turned 2 in May, enjoyed the Phila. zoo last week. We are going to wait until the end of summer to take him to Dutch Wonderland. I wouldn't take him to Hershey until he is at least 4 or 5 years of age. Knoebels is another park that I would take a toddler because there you do not have to pay to get in, you only pay for each ride.
