    How old do you have to be to ride a majority of rides? Especially the Fantasy land rides (Peter Pan)? Thanks - I have a 2 and 5 year old - any other additional tips?

    Hi ya, Heather!

    Welcome to planDisney! Your little Mouseketeers sound like they are at amazing ages to enjoy the Disneyland Resort. 

    While there are no age requirements to enjoy attractions at the theme parks, some rides do have height requirements. I like to measure my kids before each of our visits so I'm sure what they will be able to ride and what will need to wait for next time. Also, there is a park policy that children must be at least 7 years old to ride an attraction by themselves. Kids under age 7 need to be accompanied by someone at least 14 years old on rides.

    The theme parks have SO much to do for young kids! Many rides don't have a height requirement at all, including classics like "it's a small world" and fun new attractions like Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway. You mentioned the Fantasyland attractions, and those rides don't have height requirements so your whole group can enjoy them together. You can also meet favorite characters, enjoy shows and parades, and so much more! Mickey's Toontown was recently reimagined and is now a wonderful place for littles to explore and put their imagination to work.

    There's so much to see at Disneyland Park, Heather! I hope you and your kiddos will be able to experience the magic soon!

    Keep moving forward!
