    8 days till we arrive!! Getting some last minute planning done and was wondering if you could give me a list of the best rides for my DD3? Thanks!! :)

    Hi Amanda,

    Your preschooler can go on any ride for which there is no height requirement. This gives you many dozens of choices. However, every child is different. I know some 3-year-olds who LOVE the Haunted Mansion, while others are petrified of even the pre-show. Without knowing your daughter personally, I can only make general suggestions. So let me tell you what my own daughters loved in each park when they were three and you can use that as a starting point. Here are my top five recommendations in each of the parks:

    Magic Kingdom
    - Winnie the Pooh
    - Peter Pan's Flight
    - The Carousel
    - Country Bear Jamboree
    - Buzz LIghtyear's Space Ranger Spin

    - The Seas with Nemo and Friends
    -Turtle Talk with Crush
    - Journey to Imagination
    - The Gran Fiesta (Mexico pavilion)
    - Living with the Land

    Animal Kingdom
    -Kilimanjaro Safari
    - Finding Nemo, the Musical
    - Festival of the Lion King
    - Conservation Station Affection Section
    - The Boneyard

    Disney's Hollywood Studios
    - Voyage of the Little Mermaid
    -Beauty and the Beast
    -Disney Junior Live
    -Toy Story Mania
    -Honey I Shrunk the Kids Playground

    And don't forget all the character greetings, parades, shows, meals, and fireworks presentations. When my daughters were three, they preferred meeting characters over almost every ride in the parks. 

    Enjoy your visit!
