    What are the best rides for babies and young toddlers?

    Hi, Lynsie! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Thanks for stopping by to ask me your question. As a mom of two little ones, I'm just your gal to share some of the best rides for our littlest Mouseketeers. 

    While all attractions without height requirements are perfect for babies and toddlers, these are some of my favorite attractions at each of the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks: 

    Magic Kingdom Park: No visit is complete without an adventure to Fantasyland. There, you'll find classic attractions like "it's a small world," Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant. My older son's first ride ever was The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and its vibrant colors and interactive queue are a hit with the littles. Other fun attractions for a bit more thrill are Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion.

    EPCOT: If your baby loves Anna and Elsa, the trip to Arandelle via the ride Frozen Ever After is a must. As you continue around the World Showcase, say hi to Chef Remy at Remy's Ratatouille Adventure in the France Pavilion. Journey Into Imagination with Figment and The Seas with  Nemo & Friends are two of my boys' favorite rides, especially because both attractions have cool areas to explore afterward. 

    Disney's Hollywood Studios: This theme park is known for its thrills, but it's the home of some of the best rides for babies and toddlers. Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway is a family favorite. My kids can't stop smiling on this highly immersive trip through a Mickey Mouse cartoon. All three attractions in Toy Story Land are not to be missed. Toy Story Mania is the only one without a height requirement, so I definitely recommend this one. 

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park: Kilimanjaro Safaris can be a bumpy ride, but it's a fun way to explore the wild and see some pretty cool animals in natural habitats. (And the rocking motion of the safari vehicle may make it the most underrated spot for naps at the Resort.) Kiddos also love Na'vi River Journey and TriceraTop Spin. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: If you need some quiet time away from the excitement of the attractions, I recommend visiting one of the Baby Care Centers, which are located in each theme park. They are practically perfect, low-stimulation spaces for you and your little one to do feedings, diaper changes, or naps. 

    Lynsie, if you have any other Disney vacation planning questions, feel free to revisit us here at planDisney.

    Magic always,
