    We will be traveling with our (just turned) 1 year old to WDW this fall. I am having problems understanding what rides she will be able to get on (specifically Fantasyland). The ride explanations typically say "pre-schoolers". Can you help?

    Hi Julie,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  We're glad you're hEAR!

    Your 1 year old can ride any of the attractions where she meets the height requirements (HRs). You can find a list of the attractions with HRs by visiting the Traveling with Little Ones section on the Disney World Website. There you will find a PDF file on the right side of that page that lists attractions at all of the theme parks that have HRs.

    I found that when my boys were that age, they weren't really frightened by any of the attractions unless they were startled by any sudden loud noises (i.e., fireworks).  They became more frightened around the age of 3 but your daughter may be different.  My boys didn't have a problem with any of the attractions in Fantasyland at the age of one. 

    The biggest challenge for my boys at the age of one was keeping them entertained in line.  Bring something to help keep her entertained in line - favorite small toys, snacks, bubbles, etc.  You can also play games like peek-a-boo.  Be sure to give her breaks from her stroller. Try (it will be hard) to stick to nap times. Take advantage of the Baby Care Centers located in each theme park. Click here for some tips on strollers.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
