« back to Toddlers & Infants
I will be bringing a group of my family in April and we are concerned about how much there is to do for our children that are ages 3 to 5 years. Are there any rides they can ride?

Oh my goodness, Amanda
! There is so much for preschoolers to do at Walt Disney World. When Walt Disney and his Imagineers designed the Disney theme parks, they had guests of all ages in mind.
My husband and I took our son for his first trip to Walt Disney World when he was five years old and these were some of his favorite rides, shows, and attractions:
Disney's Animal Kingdom: Kilimanjaro Safaris, Flights of Wonder, the Boneyard, Finding Nemo-The Musical, Festival of the Lion King
Epcot - Kidcot Fun Stops, Gran Fiesta Tour in the Mexico Pavilion, Living with the Land, Journey into Imagination, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, and Turtle Talk with Crush
Disney's Hollywood Studios - Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun Parade, Toy Story Mania!, Fantasmic!, Disney Junior - Live on Stage, and the Great Movie Ride
Magic Kingdom - This park is just full of rides for preschoolers! Your little ones are too small to enjoy the Haunted Mansion or the the thrilling mountain rides (Space, Splash, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad) but, otherwise, you could ride attractions all day that your preschoolers will love! This was my son's favorite park.
Be on the lookout in each park for character meet and greet opportunities. I bet your little ones will love meeting Mickey Mouse and his many colorful friends. Bring an autograph book for each of your children so they can collect character autographs throughout your vacation.
Enjoy Walt Disney World through the eyes of a child! I guarantee the experience will be pure magic.
