Toddler Approved Rides at Disney World

As annual passholders to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL we travel to Disney at least twice a month. My daughter’s first trip was when she was only 4 months old (read why you should bring your baby to Disney here) and as she’s grown over the past two years, we’ve learned which rides she absolutely loves and which ones to avoid. Here is our ultimate list of Toddler Approved Rides at Disney including all four parks. Keep in mind, toddlers and babies can ride anything that does not have a height requirement. This list does NOT include shows and/or character meet and greets which are also a favorite!

Magic Kingdom

Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin

Dumbo the Flying Elephant

Haunted Mansion (it is dark and scary)

It’s a Small World (a must ride)

Jungle Cruise

Liberty Square Riverboat (kind of boring for toddlers)

Mad Tea Party (her FAVORITE)

The Magic Carpets of Aladdin

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (Love the activities in the line queue)

Peter Pan’s Flight (not worth a 90 minute wait)

Pirates of the Caribbean (dark, has small drop and loud noises)

Prince Charming Regal Carrousel

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover

Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid

Walt Disney World Railroad

Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress (boring but great place to cool off)

Book FastPass Disney


Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros (features Donald Duck)

Journey into Imagination with Figment (Fun interactive stuff at the end)

Living with the Land

Frozen Ever After (FAVORITE at Epcot! Two drops, one backward and one forward)

The Seas with Nemo & Friends

Spaceship Earth

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Toy Story Mania! (Lots of jerks and sharp turns)

*Not much to ride here for little kids. They do have great shows for toddlers such as Disney Junior Live, Beauty and the Beast, Frozen Sing Along, etc.
