One of the most magical things about Disney is that it is true special for the whole family. You can travel with a baby, grandparents, and everyone in between and there is something for everyone to enjoy – and yes, aside from parades and shows there are even attractions at Disney for the whole family.
While you certainly have the opportunity to do roller coasters and bigger thrill rides, there’s more than just those attractions at Disney (so Grandma and the baby don’t have to sit on a bench the whole time and wait for you!). I’ve gathered together some of my favorite rides and attractions that should work for everyone. These rides don’t have any height restrictions, but they are also entertaining and interesting for every age, not just kids. If the whole family wants to have some fun together in Disney, here’s what I recommend:
Peoplemover – a slow moving tour above Tomorrowland.
Railroad – Walt Disney was a huge fan of trains, so a train ride around Magic Kingdom is great for everyone.
Tomorrowland Speedway – Drive a car around a track (children below a certain height can ride as a passenger with an adult)
Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor – This interactive show with Mike Wazowski includes audience interaction and lots of great humor.
Mad Tea Party – It might be debatable if parents can handle the spinning on this one, but kids love it!
Winnie the Pooh – A fun exploration through the Hundred Acre Wood with Pooh and friends!
Prince Charming’s Carousel – a classic carousel where all the horses are jumpers so everyone feels special.
Dumbo – This is an iconic Disney attraction. Riding in Dumbo is sure to make you feel like a kid again.
Under the Sea – experience the story of The Little Mermaid while riding in a clam shell under the sea.
Enchanted Tales with Belle – Lumiere tells an interactive story about how Belle and the Beast met, where people from the audience play the roles!
Mickey’s Philharmagic – a fun 3D film that takes you through various favorite Disney movies such as Aladdin, the Lion King, and Peter Pan.
Peter Pan’s Flight – soar above Neverland to see mermaids, pirates, and Peter himself.
