Everyone already knows that of all the theme parks at Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom especially caters to children. But if you’re a parent of a toddler or two, you may be wondering what some of those rides are? Here are some of the best toddler rides at Magic Kingdom.
What are the best rides for toddlers at Magic Kingdom?
Below are our favorite rides for toddlers at Magic Kingdom. These are classic favorites that most toddlers will love and ask to ride over and over again!
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
Parents and children of all ages will get a kick out of how Disney brings Toy Story to life with Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin.
Your family will join forces with Buzz Lightyear to battle the evil Emperor Zurg and his alien minions. Even if your youngest doesn’t quite understand the game, they will still enjoy this entertaining ride.
Dumbo the Flying Elephant
Waiting in line for Dumbo the Flying Elephant attraction isn’t so bad because of their indoor play area. Once it’s your turn, you may have trouble pulling them away from the fun, but they’ll love soaring through the sky with Dumbo. Children must be at least 35 inches to ride.
It’s a Small World
For many decades now, “It’s a small world” is a classic boat ride that both young and old have come to appreciate.
And when parents hear the song, they’ll be reminded of the magic and excitement that they once experienced at Disney when they were younger.
Located in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland, Jungle Cruise is a boat ride that will take you through the jungles of Africa, Asia, as well as the Amazon.
Your little ones will get to see live animals just like you would on a real safari. Parents will also get to hear a few corny jokes too.
Peter Pan’s Flight
Flying through the streets of London and on into Neverland with Peter Pan’s Flight is a ride that your children will never forget. It’s an extremely popular ride in the Magic Kingdom and sometimes has long waiting lines, but the ride also has an interactive queue to help pass the time.
Pirates of the Caribbean
Another classic and favorite ride at Magic Kingdom would have to go to Pirates of the Caribbean. This ride is also suitable for toddlers, but keep in mind that there are a few moments in the beginning that younger children might find scary.
Although there’s a height requirement for the Tomorrowland Speedway, as long as your little one’s at least 32 inches tall, they can ride with another passenger that’s 54 inches or taller. And trust me, it’s one ride you don’t want to pass up on.
Younger children’s faces will light up with the thrill of racing their siblings and family around the race track.
Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover
When your family could use a break from all the walking and standing in line, be sure to hop on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover.
You’ll ride high over Tomorrowland while getting an excellent view of Cinderella’s Castle and venture through Space Mountain.
Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid
Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid is an indoor dark ride. Why is this so significant? Well, it provides you and your kiddos a chance to escape the afternoon heat! You’ll also love singing along with your favorite Little Mermaid songs as you travel through the underwater tale of Ariel. Wait times are typically short for this ride.
These are several of the best toddler rides at Magic Kingdom. Which of these are you and your younger children looking forward to most?
