Off on a trip to Walt Disney World Resort soon and wondering what attractions will be suitable for your little ones? These rides are just a hand-full of the great selection of attractions suitable for children under 10, making the Disney Parks great places to spend a family holiday.
Triceratop Spin (Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park)
This attraction is a great early-ride for those younger guests, and usually enjoys little to no waiting times too. While these types of attractions aren’t thrill rides, they can serve as a great confidence booster for kids who haven’t had much experience with theme parks, paving for the way for the larger rides in later years - or even later in the holiday! Triceratop Spin also uses the same ride platform as Dumbo the Flying Elephant and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, so you can add those to the list if your child enjoys this attraction too.
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (Magic Kingdom Park)
This is a fantastic first-coaster that will allow younger guests of Walt Disney World Resort to get a taste of the exciting thrills that await them. Although it’s a roller coaster, it’s still tamer than most across the Disney Parks, with no loops or inversions and even some slow spots too. Journey through an abandoned mine and take in the scenery with your family. (Height restriction 40"/102cm)
The Barnstormer (Magic Kingdom Park)
However, if you are worried that Walt Disney World Resort’s mountain coaster is still a little bit too much for your kids, The Barnstormer is a great alternative. Climb aboard a wacky stunt plane and hold on tight as you take to the skies above Fantasyland. It’s a junior coaster and is perfect for first time/younger guests. There are some small drops, but this will hopefully only build your children’s confidence. (Height restriction 35"/89cm)
Toy Story Mania (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)
You can play your favourite carnival style games on this interactive 4D-ride, and your kids will love spotting their favourite Toy Story characters such as Buzz, Woody, and the rest of the gang. There’s five games to enjoy: Hamm & Eggs, Rex and Trixie’s Dino Darts, Green Army Men Shoot Camp, Buzz Lightyear’s Flying Tossers, and Woody’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gallery. This is an exciting and exhilarating attraction, making it great for younger visitors and families. What’s more - you can compete with other players too!
Mad Tea Party (Magic Kingdom Park)
A classic spinning tea cup attraction, this a must-do ride for any younger guest to Walt Disney World Resort. You have the option to spin as much or as little as you want to, so you can always start off slow and work your way up to enjoying a faster thrill later on in the holiday.
Test Track (Epcot)
This is the actually the fastest and longest attraction in Walt Disney World Resort in Florida - but can be enjoyed by kids as young as 5! (Height restriction - 40"/102cm) Although this may be suited for those children who you already know enjoy fast-paced rides and experiences, Test Track is a great family-friendly attraction that needs to be experienced at least once during your holiday. Create your own virtual concept car, then head over to the “SIM Car” to take it for an exhilarating spin! The attraction combines creativity with thrills, making for a truly unique experience with your family.
