Magic Kingdom Rides: Toddlers Top 10!

In two short weeks my family will be headed to Florida to visit Disney World.

It’s technically my toddler’s second trip to the happiest place on earth, but since she was only 5 months old at the time I’m fairly confident that this trip will leave more of an impression on her.

I’m so excited to experience the magic right alongside her. I can’t wait to watch her eyes widen when she sees her favorite characters come to life. But I’ll be honest: planning a Disney vacation can easily get overwhelming.

Everyone has input and advice, and there is a ton of expert information to be found online. My favorite go-to resource for Walt Disney World planning is All Ears.Net, which has everything from when to go and where to stay to detailed information for special populations such as pregnant women and those with disabilities. Disney’s Planning Center is another great way to go; my favorite features there are the customized maps and Moms Panel.

Based on my own experiences navigating the Magic Kingdom with kids as well as help from the experts, I’ve rounded up my Magic Kingdom Rides: Toddlers Top 10 (and I should that these are purely my own opinions and that Disney has not sponsored this post).

Tomorrow, look for my second post in this series (because if anything deserves a series it’s a trip to Disney!),Magic Kingdom: Top 10 Toddler Tips.

See ya real soon!

  • Number 10: Pirates of the Caribbean 1 of 10
    I know what you're thinking...it's not a toddler ride. And while Pirates may be a little frightening for some toddlers, in my experience they love the little boats in this classic Disney attraction, plus it's a great way to escape the heat, too! If your toddler loves pirates as much as mine, this ride is not to be missed.

    Your toddler will love riding in his own little honey pot to follow Pooh and the gang through the Hundred Acre Woods.
