    Does the rides for toddlers have any seatbelts?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sofia! Planning a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort with little ones is a special kind of magic - I remember fondly bringing my now teenagers to the Most Magical Place on Earth when they were younger, and watching them experience the joy of meeting their favorite characters or riding attractions themed after their storybook favorites made the magic even more realized for me, too!

    Sofia, there are over 100 things to do throughout the four Disney theme parks with no height requirements, so your toddlers are going to have so much fun experiencing all of these timeless favorites! Most of the rides are equipped with safety lapbars, and most of them allow for an adult to sit extra close to a child, so you can hold on tight for an extra layer of safety as well! The only specific rides that I know of with an actual seatbelt are Dumbo the Flying Elephant and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin in Magic Kingdom Park, but rest assured your toddlers will be so mesmerized by the attractions, they aren't likely to try and wiggle away!

    It's been a while since I've traveled with younger mouseketeers in tow, but I'd love to share some of my girls' favorite rides and shows from when they were younger:
    • "it's a small world" and Peter Pan's Flight in Magic Kingdom Park
    • Kilimanjaro Safaris and Festival of the Lion King at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    • Journey into Imagination and Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros in EPCOT
    • Disney Junior Play and Dance and Toy Story Mania in Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Don't forget to also take time to catch the Festival of Fantasy parade in Magic Kingdom, and hunt down your favorite characters at each park. You can easily search for character meet and greets in the My Disney Experience mobile app if there is a particular character that your toddlers are dreaming of meeting for a hug and an autograph!

    One last tip I'll share for traveling with toddlers is to make a reservation for a character dining experience - it gives everyone a chance to rest and recharge, and the tableside character interactions will delight you and your toddlers! My favorite character meal on property is dinner at Garden Grill Restaurant in EPCOT, but I also enjoy breakfast at Topolino's Terrace in the Riviera Resort!

    Sofia, I hope this helps and I know you are going to have a magical time visiting the parks! If you have any other questions, come on back and let us know! At planDisney, we're all ears!
