We travel to Walt Disney World a lot so my friends know to come to me with any Disney questions they have. One question I get a lot is people wondering what there really is to do with toddlers. Will there be rides for them? I’m here to tell you that there are SO many. We’ve been bringing our kids to Disney World since they were two and there’s just so much for them to ride and see. I wanted to break down for you the BEST rides for toddlers at Walt Disney World.
So, if you’re going to Walt Disney World for a few days, I always recommend to spent most of your time at the Magic Kingdom if you have toddlers. It’s my kids favorite park so we always spend 2-3 days there when we are there for a week. Here’s a list for rides that toddlers can go on. My toddler’s favorites are in bold.
- Dumbo the Flying Elephant
- it’s a small world
- Winnie the Pooh
- Walt Disney Railroad
- Jungle Cruise
- Mad Tea Party
- The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
- Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
- Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor
- Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover
- Carousel of Progress
We’ve also brought my kids on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and the Haunted Mansion ride. Mine have never gotten scared but you know your kids best – it’s dark and there are some “frightening scenes”.
Epcot is one of my favorite parks and many might think of it as a more “adult” park. I don’t think that’s true at all and there are so many rides and activities that my kids love to do.
- Frozen Ever After
- Grand Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros
- Living with the Land
- Journey into Imagination with Figment
- Kidcot Fun Stops in the World Showcase
- The Seas with Nemo & Friends
- Spaceship Earth
- Turtle Talk with Crush
When we visit Hollywood Studios, we usually only spend half a day there. That will change in the next few years with the addition of Star Wars and Toy Story areas. For now, the best activities for toddlers at Hollywood Studios are below!
- Muppet Vision 3D
- Toy Story Mania
- Disney Junior – Live on Stage
- Frozen Singalong Celebration
- Voyage of the Little Mermaid
- Character Meet and Greets – Disney Junior friends like Sofia, Doc McStuffins and Jake, Olaf, Buzz Lightyear and Woody
Animal Kingdom is another park that used to be a half day for us that is quickly becoming a longer day. We are lucky enough to have an amazing zoo here in St. Louis but my kids love exploring all of the trails here at Animal Kingdom and seeing all of the animals.
- The Boneyard
- Conservation Station
- Wildlife Express Train
- Discovery Island Trails
- Kilimanjaro Safaris
- Na’vi River Journey
- TriceraTop Spin
There’s so much to do with toddlers at Walt Disney World. Don’t let people make you feel bad for taking them because “they won’t remember it”. (I wrote about that and why I’ll take my toddler to Disney World) You’ll have so much fun with them in that moment and just know that there’s so much fun to be had there!
Pin it for later!
