    I have a three year old soon to be four, what park would you recommend me to choose, I would like family rides specially for his age? Thank you.

    Hi, Denisse!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about the Disneyland Resort!  I’m glad to hear you’re planning a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth with your little one. 

    If you only have time to visit one of the theme parks during your visit, I suggest you see the original, Disneyland Park. There’s lots of classic charm to take in and many family-friendly attractions to enjoy. If there is no minimum height requirement at an attraction or it is advertised as being suitable for “any height,” then it’s safe for your son to ride! There are even a couple attractions with height requirements that he may be tall enough to experience with you, like Autopia, which has a minimum height requirement of only 32 inches. 

    Some favorite attractions your whole family can enjoy together in Disneyland Park are “it’s a small world,” Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Peter Pan’s Flight, Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. In fact, almost every attraction in Fantasyland is preschooler-friendly! Plus, you will be able to catch the new “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” fireworks show and the popular “Pixar Play Parade” in Disneyland Park. I hope this helps, Denisse, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted vacation. Please visit us again with more questions!

    Wishing you magic,
