    Were heading to Disney World with a 6, 4.5, and a 1 year old. Would there be any rides that the on year old can join us on? What rides in MK would we be most by with their age and height?

    Hi Tammy!

    Walt Disney created Disneyland with the family in mind.  Even though he didn't live to see it's completion, the same family foundation was carried over to The Florida Project (aka Walt Disney World). 

    We've traveled with an infant as young as 7 weeks (yes, seven weeks old!), and he was able to ride 98% of the rides at Walt Disney World (there are so many!).  Here's a list for you of attractions that have a height requirement that the little one won't be able to ride.  As you'll be able to see, it's just a handful in each park:

    Magic Kingdom
    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    Splash Mountain
    Space Mountain
    Stitch's Great Escape
    Tomorrowland Indy Speedway (riders need to be 1+, and someone will need to ride with an adult so they can operate gas pedal and help steer)
    The Barnstormer
    Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (once it is opened)

    Mission: Space
    Test Track

    Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Tower of Terror
    Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
    Star Tours

    Disney's Animal Kingdom
    Expedition Everest
    Primeval Whirl
    Kali River Rapids

    Have a magical vacation!
