Best Toddler Rides at Magic Kingdom
In my opinions, toddlers may be the perfect age for Magic Kingdom. They are completely immersed in the magic, love the meet and greets and can really start to enjoy all of the Magic Kingdom rides.
In this section we will let you know the best toddler rides at Magic Kingdom in each of the lands. The rides listed below have no height restriction, unless explicitly stated. However although these rides do not have a height restriction there may be some things that toddlers may find scary i.e. darkness or loud noises.
For this reason we will outline the premise and expectations of each ride so you can prepare your toddler or decide whether or not it is suitable for your little one.

Magic Kingdom Toddler Friendly Rides at Fantasyland
It’s a Small World
Dumbo the Flying Elephant
Prince Charming Regal Carousel
Mad Tea Party
Magic Kingdom rides for ToddlersHeight restriction: 35 inches
This is what I like to call the first starter rollercoaster at the Magic Kingdom. The rollercoaster features Goofy causing all kind of mayhem.
My two year old was 36 inches when we visited Magic Kingdom so could ride this but I know he is very tall. I would say for most toddlers this ride will only be available once they reach 3 or over.
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
This is another dark ride at Magic Kingdom that toddlers can go on. While the ride is not scary per se, some toddlers could find this scary because of the combination of darkness and loud noises.
Both of my children were fine as toddlers going on this ride but not all toddlers will enjoy this one. If your toddler is of a nervous disposition you may want to avoid this one.
Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid
Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid was my toddler’s favorite ride at the Magic Kingdom. You board a shell on this ride and descend into the world of the little mermaid as Scuttle narrates the story to you.
This ride is very gentle but it is a dark ride so some little children could be scared.
This ride is also one of the best rides for toddlers at Disneyland which also has this ride.
This is a great toddler attraction at Magic Kingdom that usually doesn’t have a queue over 25 minutes. This is more of an attraction than a ride as you go into a cinema and put on 3d glasses to watch a film with Donald causing mayhem when he gets hold of Mickey’s sorcerers hat.
Magic Kingdom Toddler Rides in AdventureLand
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
Pirates of the Caribbean
One of the best things about the Pirates of the Caribbean is that there is no height restriction so is suitable for babies as well as toddlers and the queue is completely in the shade with air conditioning.
However the downside to this ride is that darkness and loud noises in this ride may scare some toddlers.
Magic Kingdom Liberty Square Rides for Toddlers
The Haunted Mansion, like Pirates of the Caribbean, is another ride that is suitable for babies and toddlers at the Magic Kingdom however may not be suitable because of scare factors.
In this ride you board a clamshell and go through a haunted mansion where you will meet ghosts and spooky animatronic figures and eerie voices.
I knew that this would scare my toddlers so only the adults usually ride this using the rider swap function.
Magic KingdomTomorrowland Rides for Toddlers
Buzz Lightyear’s Astroblast
If your toddler loves Toy Story then they are going to love this ride. You board a waltzer and you help Buzz defeat Zurg by shooting at him and his minions with a laser.
However this ride may be scary to toddlers who don’t like dark rides. Other than that there isn’t a scare factor.
Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover
The People Mover does not have a height restriction but gives you behind the scene views of other Tomorrowland rides.
However if your toddler doesn’t sit well for long periods this ride might not be for them as it takes c. 10 minutes to complete a circuit of the ride without storage time.
Astro Orbitor îs very similar to the Dumbo Flying Elephant ride only you will board a rocket instead of an elephant.
If your little one is ok with Dumbo then they will be fine with this.
Note: If you are visiting Magic Kingdom plus sized this ride can be a little difficult to get in and out of.
Height Restriction: 32 inches
The Tomorrowland Speedway is suitable for any toddler who is above 32 inches in height. On this ride you and your toddler will board a car and drive around the circuit. This ride is great for those toddlers who love cars.
However I will warn you that this ride is pretty stinky. The cars emit and smell strongly of Gasoline and this can become a bit overwhelming especially if there is a wait to disembark.
