    I am traveling with a 3 year old boy and 4 year old girl for the first time to Disneyworld in September. My question is, what is the size requirement for the rides? Will there be plenty of rides for my children to enjoy? Thank you!

    Hi Allyson!

    First Timer! Congratulations! You and your family are going to have the time of your lives! As a mom of a 3 year old girl, I can tell you that you have nothing to worry about! The Walt Disney World Resort has something for everyone, especially the little ones! You can now search the attractions by height requirements on the "Attractions" page of the Walt Disney World Website. I can tell you from experience that my 3 year old can ride about 90% of the rides.

    Magic Kingdom is my favorite park for toddlers and pre-schoolers as I feel it contains the most entertainment and attractions for them. While at Magic Kingdom, be sure to visit some of the attractions my little one loves: "Peter Pan's Flight", "Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin", the "Magic Carpets of Aladdin", "It’s a Small World”, and "Dumbo the Flying Elephant". You can also find plenty of character meet and greets thoughout this park! There is no better feeling than to see your kids light up with excitement when they see their favorite characters! Ultimately, I gotta say that the best thing is the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular Fireworks! The music, the fireworks and the flying Tinker Bell are out of this world!

    If you visit the other parks, I would recommend "The Seas with Nemo and Friends" at Epcot and "The Boneyard" play area at Disney's Animal Kingdom; “Disney Junior – Live on Stage!” and "Toy Story Midway Mania" at Disney's Hollywood Studios! Your kids would love these!

    If I can help you with any other planning questions, please feel free to ask me!

    Thank you for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
