With so many family-friendly attractions at Walt Disney World, it can be a challenge to decide which rides are best for your toddler. Here’s our roundup of rides that are perfect for toddlers at the parks. Enjoy!
1. It's a Small World, Magic Kingdom
It's a Small World usually has a short wait time – but the ride itself is 14 minutes long so you don't feel like you’ve hopped on just to hop right off again. This ride is the perfect opportunity to rest your toddler's legs and let them cool off a bit while enjoying the sights and sounds of the world around them. It's a Small World has something to see around each turn and the bright colors make it the ideal ride for a toddler.
2. Toy Story Mania, Hollywood Studios
As soon as you walk into the queue of Toy Story Mania, you'll step into the world of Andy's room by shrinking down to the size of a toy. Your toddler will love seeing the familiar faces of Woody, Jessie, Buzz and the rest of the gang as they twist and turn while playing along on this 3D adventure.
3. Frozen Ever After, Epcot
If your toddler is a fan of Anna, Elsa and Olaf, then Frozen Ever After will be a must on your list of rides at Epcot. This boat ride takes you into Arendelle as you view favorite scenes from the popular movie. As if seeing the characters wasn't fun enough, this ride also has more than a few surprises in store. Your toddler will love this one!
4. Kilimanjaro Safari, Animal Kingdom
Giraffes, elephants, hippos, zebras and so much more will walk right next to your safari vehicle on the Kilimanjaro Safari ride at the Animal Kingdom. This ride brings your toddler up close and personal with many of the animals they see in their favorite books and movies. There isn't an abundance of family-friendly rides at Animal Kingdom, but seeing the animals is the highlight for the younger crowd and the Kilimanjaro Safari is the best way to do so.
5. Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Magic Kingdom
Your toddler will not only love flying high in the sky as they take off on Dumbo the Flying Elephant, but they will also love the play area within the ride's queue. This air-conditioned space has slides and climbing areas for your little ones to explore while Dumbo himself flies around the top of the circus tent. Fun!
