    I am coming on July 15, and wanted to know what it is the best character dining for a 2 and 4 year old and how do I find out what rides they can ride? They are 36 in- I want to go to the Parks with the most rides for them.

    Hi Amy,

    You must be so excited!  Seeing the Disney World through the eyes of your small children can be magical!  Character dining is a great way to introduce your children to their favorite characters, and there are a few restaurants that I would recommend for this age: 
    • Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom - if your children like Winnie the Pooh, this is the place to be.
    • Hollywood & Vine at Hollywood Studios - this restaurant features some favorite Playhouse Disney characters. 
    • Chef Mickey's at Contemporary Resort - this is a fun restaurant featuring Mickey and pals.
    As far as which park to visit.  If you're only spending one day, I recommend Magic Kingdom.  Fantasyland and Toontown are great areas to visit with little ones.  There are a few attractions throughout the park that have height requirements for safety reasons.  Click HERE for a complete listing.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
