Ten Must Ride Disney World Attractions to Make Your Toddlers First Visit Unforgettable



Magic Kingdom holds a special feeling that I can only describe as magical. As Disney's most popular park, it has something for everyone. Thrills for those who seek them, nostalgia for the sentimental, and magic for children of every age. This guide is designed to create amazing memories for you and your little ones. 


The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh


On the way to your Hunny Pot, frolic in Rabbits garden, paint with honey, then visit Eeyore's home. When you're done, hop in your Hunny Pot for a colorful adventure through Winnie the Pooh's story.

Peter Pans Flight


As one of Magic Kingdoms' most popular rides, Peter Pan's Flight is a must get for your FastPass+. Don't fret if you aren't able to secure the elusive FastPass+ for this attraction; the queue is super fun and interactive, so your little one is sure to be entertained as you make your way through the Darling's home. Once on your galleon, you will follow the journey of the Darling kids from London to Never Land.



it's a small world


Located in Fantasyland, this classic attraction takes you on a journey to all seven continents. This 10-minute boat tour is a great way to beat the Florida heat. Your little one will be mesmerized by the art style of this ride along with the singing children.

Dumbo the Flying Elephant


May you go high or go low; when you wait your turn for Dumbo, there is no queue to bother you. Instead, your little ones can let out some energy in the air-conditioned playground under the big top tent. Once their turn comes, you can board your favorite flying elephant. 

Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid


Go under the sea without getting wet! Follow the journey of Ariel in her classic tale of true love. Your little one may get a bit shy or grossed out when Prince Eric kisses the girl. 

Mad Tea Party

Spin, spin, spin, and spin some more. Not to fret, it's up to you how much you turn. Mad Tea Party is the perfect attraction to capture a video of your little one in laugh-action. Let the kids take control of the spinning action and press record. When you playback, you'll see the blur of Disney in the background, and front and center is the joy of youth.



Tomorrowland Speedway


Get in the passenger seat and let your little one take the wheel. As long as your child is at least 32 inches tall, they can drive. If they can reach the accelerator pedal, don't fret, top speed is 7 miles per hour. While you are making the loop around the racetrack, don't worry if you are causing congestion, just have fun. 

Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin


This attraction is for the big and small alike. Each passenger gets an infrared laser cannon to help defeat Zurg, who is stealing the batteries from the toys. Be sure to prepare your little one by watching Toy Story 2 before your visit, and get them ready to join the fight. There is an on-ride photo, so have your smiles ready!


Jungle Cruise


A Disney original, the Jungle Cruise takes you through Africa, Asia, and South America. Beware, the river cruise is bountiful with jokes that may make you laugh or cringe. This journey through classic animatronics is a treat for the family. 

Pirates of the Caribbean


Look out for Captain Jack Sparrow as you sail past a battle and the plundering of a seaside town. Pirates of the Caribbean is a dark ride with loud noises, but it is far from scary. Snag a FastPass for this attraction as wait times can vary.



If your visit is during a high-volume time at Disney, don't fret if you are unable to experience every attraction on this list. I made this guide so that you can be sure to capture as much magic as possible.
