That's funny - I think Monsters Inc is scarier than The Incredibles.
I took my dd1 (now 10, think she was around 5 when it came out?) to see Monsters Inc in the theater. Oh, that was one of my worst parenting mistakes. She was traumatized for years. She had (previous to that) slept in her room, lights off and door closed. After that movie, no more of that. She will now sleep with her door closed, but she still insists on a night light. I had friends that had seen it tell me not to take her, but I didn't listen. I thought that since the monsters were scared of the little girl, it would be alright. Nooooo.....
My kids all watch The Incredibles - they are 10, 6 and 3. We have it on dvd, though I personally don't think it is good enough to buy. Dh did, so we have it.
My dd2 and dd3 still haven't seen Monsters Inc as we had such a terrible experience when dd1 watched it!
None of my kids have seen any Harry Potter, though the first one is on my list of fave movies. Just love the "fondest heart's desire" part....
My kids have all been to Disneyland a couple of times, and understand "Mickey magic" in regards to the rides and shows. We talk about the movies that way too - it isn't real; it is like Mickey magic.
I think kids are different. If you think it might be a problem for your kid, wait. My dd1 is a much different kid than dd2 or dd3.
