6 Best Attractions for Kids in Orlando
Great fun for little ones and adults alike!
Little kids love Orlando too, and there's plenty for them to see and do...even if they're not quite big enough for the big coasters yet! Here's our low-down on which attractions are best for even the smallest of theme park fans. By Francesca Caramelle

1. Enchanted Tales with Belle (Magic Kingdom)

Enchanted Tales with Belle

If you always thought that dreaming is believing, you won´t want to miss out on this incredible experience, which sees the beautiful princess Belle interacting with her funny companion from the stories, Lumière. You are transported to a whole new magical world, where what you saw in the 1950´s animated movie will finally come to life. In fact you’ll finally witness what it´s like to be a princess in a fantasy castle and you´ll have the lucky chance to experience a taste of the magic yourself!

2. Kali River Rapids (Animal Kingdom)

Kali River Rapids

If your day has been too hot and you need a break from the draining heat, then this attraction is the right solution! Jump on this old style waterproof pagoda, and let the waves of the Chakranadi River drag you through this adventurous and mysterious forest, ending in a hand-painted Asian temple. You´ll be amazed by how many surprises are awaiting you!  Rapids are always a firm favourite with all the family and the Kali River Rapids is a great group ride so the whole family can enjoy themselves together.

3. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (Magic Kingdom)

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to work in a diamond mine, and what is would be like to meet Snow White´s seven dwarfs? Sleepy, Doc, Grumpy, Bashful, Sneezy, Happy, Dopey, along with the beautiful Snow White, are glad to welcome you into their world! At the cheery sound of “Heigh Ho!” the dwarfs´ wooden train departs and you are brought down its twisty and exciting drops. Up and down large lifts, speeding and slowing down, you will be driven through Fantasyland. This thrill ride is definitively unmissable and is fun for children and adults alike!

4. Under The Sea – Journey of The Little Mermaid (Magic Kingdom)

Under the Sea - Journey with the Mermaid

“Down here all the fish is happy, as off through the waves they roll…the fish on the land ain´t happy, they sad ´cause they´re in their bowl…Under the sea!”

Surely you must have sung this catchy chorus millions of times, so why not sing along to it with the mermaid herself, Ariel?! Now you can! In the Journey of the Little Mermaid, you have the chance to sing along to the songs from the animated movie, and meet the beautiful princess of the sea, along with her little friends, Flounder the fish and Sebastian the crab. Aboard a slow boat, you´ll be part of a new magical musical, following the fairy-tale step by step, finishing off with the big and awaited grand finale, where you´ll attend Ariel and Prince Eric´s wedding. What are you waiting for?

5. Duplo Farm (Legoland Florida)

Duplo Farm LEGOLAND

Even though it’s an hour’s drive from Orlando, LEGOLAND is unmissable if you’re travelling with small children. This attraction, situated at the heart of LEGOLAND Florida, is such fantastic entertainment for kids. Young children in particular will enjoy this area of the park as everything is so bright and colourful and perfect for little ones. They’ll not only get to play in a safe environment, but they will also be able to see how a real farm works as they play. Surrounded by a wide range of farm animals, they will be able to climb, slide, and crawl freely, along with making new friends! A perfect and fun way to learn more about the country lifestyle!

6. Despicable Me Minion Mayhem (Universal Studios Florida)

Despicable Me Minion Mayhem

Another great ride for the little ones is this exciting simulator attraction at Universal Studios Florida. It opened in 2012, and since then, people of every age have enjoyed and loved it. This 3D ride is highly unusual and innovative as it not only features Gru, his daughters and the mischievous Minions, but YOU will be part of the cast as well! Join this funny gang and be recruited for Gru´s latest scheme and plan as you glide along on the simulated ride. Take up this unforgettable chance and start exploring the doctor´s laboratory and finally get involved in the Minions´ interactive dance party and show your skills. Grab your 3D glasses and “go minion”!

If we've sparked your interest and the kids are already jumping up and down with excitement to meet their favourite characters, you can find our great range of tickets for all the major parks in Orlando here. But remember...adults can get their photos taken with the minions too!
