Comments Off on Top 5 Reasons to Take Toddlers to Disney World

 

Wondering whether or not to take your toddler to Disney? Discover fun for little ones—as well as special offers designed with your family in mind. Even though your young ones will probably not remember the adventure, you will remember watching the look on their faces when they encounter Mickey Mouse and Magic Kingdom for the first time!

Top 5 Reasons to Take Toddlers to Disney World

1. The best reason to take them is it’s free!! Kids under 3 don’t need a separate ticket. With a one day Single day ticket for kids around $108, that’s a considerable savings if you choose to take your 2 year old instead of waiting until he’s 3 or 4. The same goes for FastPass+ selections. During a FastPass+ selection window, simply scan the ticket or MagicBand of the Adult, simply inform the Cast Member that your child is under 3 and they will get to experience the attraction (as long as they meet the height requirements for the attraction).  

2. Another great benefit are the Baby Centers. If your toddler gets tired and needs a break you can take them here so they can nap or just wind down. The centers are run by a Disney parks attendant, and have big, clean changing tables, nursing rooms, high chairs, and toys. You can also purchase formula, clothes, toys, and pacifiers. Baby Care Centers aren’t just for emergencies. Think of them as time out rooms where your family can take a break. They’re clean, spacious, have comfortable chairs and a TV running Disney movies.

3. The Disney Cast members and kids are so incredible! They go out of their way to interact with the little ones and pay them special attention. No matter the Character you approach they are fun, exiting and play their roles to a tee! What a delight for youngsters! They will also sign autographs and have been trained to sign a specific way so that you will always get the same signature no matter who is playing the character.

 

4. There are so many rides for your toddlers can enjoy! At Andy’s Backyard in Disney World’s All-New Toy Story Land, kids and grown-ups alike will feel like they have been shrunken down to the size of a green army man with giant toys scattered about everywhere. Dumbo the Flying Elephant is probably the one attraction that the little ones gravitate to the most. The only rides that you can’t take your toddler on are Expedition Everest, Tower of Terror, Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Kali River Rapids, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Indy Speedway.  Word of warning, though: just because you can take your toddler doesn’t mean that you should. You’ll have to make judgment calls based on your own child’s character and fear levels.

5. If you go in the off-season, the parks are least crowded. January, September, October, and the first two weeks of November and December are the best times to go and not have to fight the massive crowds. You can then go at a leisurely pace and both you and your toddler can enjoy the park!
