Thank you to Disney for this amazing vacation and opportunity for our family. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Planning a Disney Vacation with Preschoolers? Discover our thoughts on the best Family Friendly Rides at Walt Disney World® Resort!
Our first stop is at a family favorite, Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. My boys are really into animals and dinosaurs right now so naturally this park is on top of our list to visit while at the Walt Disney World® Resort. While there is much to see and do for family of all ages, there are two attractions I’d like to highlight:
Now we’re going to race on over to our next stop packed full of family friendly rides, Magic Kingdom® Park! If you have little ones with you on your Disney vacation, chances are you’re going to want to spend a good amount of time at this theme park, there’s so much to offer!
Dumbo the Flying Elephant® Attraction. First up in Fantasyland® is Dumbo the Flying Elephant® Attraction! Much like TriceraTop Spin, this is a slow spinning ride for kids of all heights where you control just how high you want to go. The cheerful carnival music and bright colors are inviting for the little ones, I remember Dumbo being one of my first rides at Disney! So you know I passed on this adventure to my little ones as well.
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Next on our list of Fantastyland® stops is The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Also available all heights, little ones will get the opportunity to board a giant Hunny Pot and experience some of the most popular scenes and settings of Winnie the Pooh. I know Adrian (our 1 year-old) was particularly fond of this attraction.
Peter Pan’s Flight® Attraction. Get a FastPass+ for this one folks, because the Peter Pan’s Flight® Attraction is on everyone’s list! And no wonder since everyone is welcome on this pixie-dust filled ride. My boys loved climbing on board a magical pirate ship for a ride to Never Land.
Now we’ll move to our final stop in Magic Kingdom® Park – Adventureland® Area! And it is just that, full of wide-eyed adventure! While there are a number of rides available to kids of all ages in this area of the park, there are two I’d like to highlight:
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. I might be biased, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Aladdin and Dole Whips, so naturally I’m drawn to this area of the Magic Kingdom® Park! Kids of all ages can fly high over Agrabah on a magic carpet ride and be sure to stop by Aloha Isle afterwards for a sweet pineapple treat!
Our next stop will take us to Disney’s Hollywood Studios®! My boys are big fans of this Disney park as they love anything and everything to do with Star Wars! But if you have your whole family, including little ones who don’t quite measure up to go on a ride like Star Tours ® –The Adventures Continues, there is still plenty to do!
Toy Story Mania!® Attraction. Our favorite family ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios® has to be Toy Story Mania!® On this ride you’ll join Woody and the gang for a ride full of carnival games you won’t forget. Our older boys loved seeing their scores climb as the blasted 3D targets along the way and our little guy loved the colorful scenes.
Our last stop is at Epcot®! Epcot® is a favorite spot for my husband and me, but there are plenty of things to do with your whole family too.
Frozen Ever After. And last, but not least we have Frozen Ever After. Located in the Norway Pavilion in Epcot®, this ride should probably be your first stop because it is in demand! Queen Elsa, Anna, Olaf and Kristoff are all there so if you have Frozen fans in your family, this attraction is a must-see! And it also has no height restrictions so it’s sure to be fun for your whole family.
So there you have it! If you’re traveling with preschoolers or young ones on your next Walt Disney World® vacation, these are some of our favorite Family Friendly Rides at Walt Disney World® Resort we think you should plan for!
