Disneyland With Toddlers – The Ride Guide

When planning a trip to Disneyland I always look at what rides my kiddos can go on. No matter how old they get there’s always something more they can do. Kai’s gone from sitting in my lap to going on some of Disney’s best thrill rides. I’m not saying that any trip with a toddler can be easy but really I think our biggest saving grace was staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. It was such an easy walk to our room if we needed anything and it truly made our trip just a little easier.

This year Brooklin was able to actually ride the rides and interact with them. The best thing about taking a toddler to Disney for the first time is seeing how they react to everything. It’s living Disney through their eyes that make a Disneyland vacation so special.

We can’t forget the rides! Just because you have a toddler at Disneyland doesn’t mean you can’t all have a great time. There’s are actually plenty of rides your little ones can ride.

Toddler Friendly Disneyland Rides:


  • EVERYTHING in Fantasyland
  • Casey Jr. Circus Train
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Buzz Lightyear
  • Disneyland Railroad
  • Disneyland Monorail
  • Astro Orbitor
  • See the Princesses
  • Donald’s Boat in Toontown
  • Enchanted Tiki Room (our family loves this!)
  • It’s A Small World
  • Goofy’s Playhouse, Chips’ Playhouse, the big Treehouse
  • Jungle Cruise
  • King Arthur Carousel
  • Mad Tea Party (aka the teacups!)
  • Winnie The Pooh
  • Mark Twain Riverboat
  • Meet Mickey and Minnie
  • Dumbo
  • Pirate’s
  • Rogger Rabbit’s Cartoon Spin
  • Tangled

As you can see there is so much that toddlers and babies can do. All of these rides have no height requirement which means your whole family can enjoy!  If your toddler is anything like mine she had a great time with everything and because we stayed so close to the park it was easy to slip away if need be.

    I brought Abby at 6 months, 2 years, and three years. Each stage is so great and offers the kids so much to do. I’ve loved taking her everytime, and I’m always confident there will be something for her to do. We learned that taking a midday nap works for all of us, not just the toddlers in question!
