    I am wanting to take my son next year to WDW for his 3rd birthday. My husband is concerned that we will not be able to enjoy many rides. Are there many rides that my 3 year old can ride? How can I ensure everyone will have a magical time?

    Hi Bridgette!

    My family is living proof that children even younger than three can enjoy the rides at Disney World!  My daughter's first trip to Disney was when she was 18 months old.  I put her on every ride in Magic Kingdom that didn't have a height requirement, and she LOVED it!  The same applies to my son.  I've also attached the height requirements web page so you can look at the rides in each park. 

    Hollywood Studios has kid friendly rides and even more special performances to just sit and watch!  Don't miss Beauty and The Beast-Live On Stage, or Disney Junior Live on Stage.  That's just two out of many that your son will enjoy.

    My son loved Animal Kingdom at that age (& still does - he's 10).  There's so much to see; even real GORILLAS!  Epcot is one of my favorites, and has rides that he can certainly ride, but if time is an issue, this is the park I would go to last.  Teenagers and adults love it though.

    I hope this helps!  Your little prince will love the trip!  If you have any other questions please let us know.

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
