    what are the rides we will be able to go on with our 18 month old daughter?

    Hi Shannon,

    Taking a toddler to Walt Disney World is truly a magical experience.  She may not be old enough to remember the trip, but you certainly will!  There are several great attractions for you to experience as a family.
    • Magic Kingdom - it's a small world, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan's Flight
    • Disney Hollywood Studios - Toy Story Mania, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Playhouse Disney- Live on Stage
    • Epcot - Under the Sea with Nemo & Friends, Spaceship Earth, Journey Into Imagination with Figment
    • Animal Kingdom - Triceratops Spin, Kilimanjaro Safari, Nemo.  Also, she may enjoy "digging for fossils" in the Boneyard.

    You'll be pleasantly surprised to know that your daughter will be allowed to experience most of the attractions with you.  Click HERE for a listing of attractions that have a height requirement for safety purposes. While children are allowed on most attractions, there are some that can be frightening -- Honey I Shrunk the Audience and It's Tough To Be a Bug are the two that my children had the most difficulty with.  You know your child best, and it's left to you to use your discretion when deciding what your little one can and cannot experience.

    If you want to see attractions that your child is still too small for, consider doing a child swap.  At the entrance of an attraction, tell the cast member you would like to do this.  One of you can go ahead in line while the other waits with your daughter.  Afterward, the parent who stayed behind will be able to ride with little or no wait time.

    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
