Disneyland was designed for kids of all ages – and
toddlers are no exception! There are many things
that you can enjoy with your toddler – so many
things in fact, that unless you will be staying for
several days, you won’t have time to do them all.
Start with Toon Town. Here is where you will find
your toddler’s favorite Disney Characters, including
Mickey and Minnie Mouse. All of the Characters
have homes in Toon Town, full of things that will
amaze your toddler, and make them laugh.
Your toddler will definitely enjoy the Disneyland
Railroad. This is a great way to get around the park,
because there are stations in New Orleans Square,
Toon Town, Tomorrowland, and on Main Street. This
will amuse your toddler, and give you a chance to
see some sights and rest a bit.
Its A Small World is very appropriate for toddlers.
Music and colors will keep your child mesmerized
while you enjoy a relaxing ride across the water. The
Storybook Land Canal Boats is another good choice,
as it will take you through the miniature villages that
your child will be quite familiar with from their story
Rides that you and your toddler must not miss
include all of the rides in Fantasyland, King Arthur’s
Carousel, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, the Circus
Train, and the Mad Tea Party. Rides that are
appropriate for youngsters, but that may cause a
little fear are the rides that are dark. These include
Peter Pan’s Flight, Pinocchio’s Daring Journey, Alice
in Wonderland, and Snow White’s Scary Adventure.
Buzz Lightyear is a popular ride for all toddlers.
There are other areas of the park that have
attractions and rides that are appropriate for toddlers.
Remember that Disneyland is a place for kids of all
ages. Pay attention to the height and age requirements
for each attraction, and avoid taking your toddler to
rides that they will not be able to enjoy. This will only
cause your child disappointment.
Stick to the areas where the toddler appropriate
attractions are located as much as possible. As an
adult, you realize that some rides are simply not safe
for small people – but your small person will not
comprehend this! Your Disneyland vacation should
be enjoyable for everyone, and Disneyland has
made sure that there is something for everyone at
the park. It is up to you to keep your child happy,
and to keep them interested in the rides and
attractions that they are meant to enjoy.
