    Hi! We are currently planning an extended family vacation to WDW :) I have a one year old, and I'm just wondering what attractions would be appropriate for a child that age. Thanks!

    Bonjour Kimberly, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question. My little guy visited Walt Disney World Resort five times (!!) before his 3rd birthday, so there are lots of fun things for little ones to see and do. 

    First, this handy post over at the Disney Parks Blog gives you clear information about the height requirements for almost all of the attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort’s Theme Parks. If an attraction says that it can be experienced by Guests of “any height”, then you’ll be able to enjoy it with your little one. Even though my little guy is taller now, I’ve found that this list is a good barometer of the types of attractions that are appropriate for him as he’s still not a big fan of roller coaters and other fast-moving or intense attractions, which normally have height requirements. 

    In addition, check out Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones page. There, you’ll find all kinds of tips and tricks for enjoying the Walt Disney World Resort with your little one! Make sure to visit the Baby Care Centers if you need a bit of a break during the day. I love their extra-large changing tables and the rocking chairs (which will be especially useful if you’re still nursing). 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions about your upcoming vacation!

    Have a Magical Day,
