Six Best Rides for Babies at Walt Disney World
For the Disney-loving new parents, your baby registry was likely ripe with Mickey Mouse onesies, movie-themed crib accessories, decor made for a princess or a pirate, and plenty of other sweet, whimsical touches. Ignore grandma’s (and your sister’s) argument that your baby won’t remember their first jaunt to Walt Disney World if you bring them too early and take the trip anyway. Why? One of the smartest ways to look at travel – regardless if you make Disney your go-to or not – is that no matter where you roam, you can always return. After all, how amazing would it be to have a photo of your kiddos from their first year until their 18th, in the same Magic Kingdom spot? For your trip to the most magical place on Earth, add these attractions to your must-visit list. Before you jet set, make sure you check with your doctor, just to get the seal of approval and ease your worries. Mom and dad travelers say these are safe for babies and recommended for parents, these will have your pals at home singing a different, happy tune:
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin in Tomorrowland
As baby’s senses continue to shape, sharpen and mature, every little flavor, sound, feeling and light will have them wide-eyed (and adorable). That’s why this Tomorrowland favorite is a smart idea for parents who want to see that priceless look of amazement on their babe’s face. It’s a slow and dark ride, allowing you to control how much spinning is involved along the way. You’ll witness easy-on-the-ears sounds and a myriad of bright, shiny colors – and of course, a few giggles!
Country Bear Jamboree at Frontierland
For the baby who is a snuggler at heart, this sweet attraction might remind them of the teddy bear you prop them up against for Instagram photos. (It’s okay, we’re not judging.) Here, that cuddly character comes to live via audio-animatronic bears that belt out Southern-inspired, old fashioned jams. You can sway with your babe as they watch the bears perform, and hey, they may even calp this time when you ask your little cowgirl or cowboy!
Dumbo The Flying Elephant
More than any other truth you believe, you know that smart baby of yours will grow up to do, well, anything they set their mind to. And hey, one way to get that mental track going is to show them that yes, sometimes elephants can fly, too. Even if you step aboard this baby-friendly ride merely for the photo you can share on Facebook, your little guy or gal will enjoy the sweet breeze in their baby locks and the subtle tune along the ride.
It’s a Small World at Fantasyland
Can you believe baby’s long life is just beginning? And there’s so much of the world to see, experience and love? Here, brew their inner traveler with one of the most beloved, well-known and catchy songs of all. They’ll appreciate the melody and the fun, colorful characters who perform with glee.
Pan’s Flight in Fantasyland
For the baby who is truly a toddler-in-training with a fearless spirit, consider strapping them in as you fly high away like Peter Pan and friends. It’s a dark ride that’s on the slower side, and gives you the control you’ll want to ensure your babe is safe. As you make your way to Neverland, direct the pirate ship and hold on tight, there’s no telling where your brave wee one will soar to!
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh in Fantasyland
It’s okay if you enjoy watching Winnie the Pooh more than your baby does right now because you know in a few years, they’ll be addicted like you were as a child. This ride lets you and your baby bee ride in the honey pot as you tour through the Hundred Acre Wood. You’ll see all of your favorites – from Piglet and Tigger to Owl, Rabbit and Eeyore – all while savoring the sweet laughs from your mini Roo.
