Top 5 Rides for Toddlers at Disney World
You may be wondering if your toddler is still too young for a trip to Disney World. Well rest assured there is SO much
for the little ones to do and see, there’s never been a better time to seize the day and let them experience the magic.
Here are our top 5 favorites toddler approved rides:
1. Frozen Ever After
This slow moving boat ride may be located in the World Showcase of Epcot, but the moment you hop on you’ll feel like you’re right inside the kingdom of Arendelle, and lucky for you, you’ve arrived just in time for the Winter in Summer celebration! Sing along with all of your favorite Frozen characters while experiencing a few fun twists and turns that will surprise you along the way! As you exit the ride, pop in next door to the Royal Sommerhus and say hello to the royal sisters themselves, Anna & Elsa.
2. Peter Pan’s Flight
This attraction is one of the few rides still remaining from opening day in Magic Kingdom. Board your pirate ship, fly over the Darling family’s home, over old town London, “take the second star to the right, and straight on till morning” where you’ll find Neverland. This gentle and delightful ride is always a family favorite…but be sure to utilize your VIP guide for this one, it has one of the busiest queues in all of Disney World!
3. Dumbo the Flying Elephant
Another family favorite and nostalgic must-do in Magic Kingdom is the Dumbo ride. As children (and even now) this attraction has always stood out to us whenever we think of Disney. Fly high over the Storybook Circus area of Fantasyland and feel the wind in your hair! This is the perfect ride for the littlest ones in the group, as well as the oldest. This ride now offers a queue full of games and interactive activities to keep your children occupied while waiting in line. Fun fact: Dumbo was an opening day attraction, and it’s no wonder that it’s still here to this day.
4. Kilimanjaro Safaris
If your little ones are into animals, then this will be an experience to remember! This 20 minute jeep ride in Animal Kingdom will take you on an adventure through their 110 acre African safari. Get up close and personal with over twenty different species of animals such as elephants, lions, crocodiles, and our favorites – the giraffes! The exit of this attraction leads to the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail, so if you haven’t gotten your fix of African wildlife yet, you can take a walk on the wild side with gorillas, hippos, monkeys, a variety of birds, and much more!
5. MICKEY & MINNIE’S RUNAWAY RAILWAY
While Hollywood Studios is generally known for having attractions geared towards older children and adults, they recently opened their newest and most kid-friendly attraction and we couldn’t be anymore excited about it! First, you will be escorted into a room to view Disney’s newest short “Perfect Picnic”, then you board Goofy’s train and are taken through the cutest story featuring classic Mickey Mouse cartoons. This attraction offers a brand new technology called 2 1/2 D (3D without the glasses) which actually makes you feel like you are inside of the cartoons.
The ride’s trackless vehicles make for an extra smooth experience. Disney seems to be loving this new trackless theme and we do too! You can also experience it on the Rise of the Resistance attraction located in Hollywood Studios Galaxy’s Edge, and on the highly anticipated Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure ride opening in Epcot soon!
