Vacationing as a family should be memorable, exciting, and fun! But what if you’re traveling with a baby or toddler? Will your family be able to enjoy activities together? If you are headed to Disneyland, the answer is YES!

As a travel agent who specializes in Disney vacations, one of the most common questions I’m asked is if there will be rides and attractions in which the entire family can take part– especially if there is a baby or toddler in tow. Thankfully, if you’re headed to Disneyland, you’re headed to the right place!

So many of the attractions at the Disneyland parks have no height requirements– meaning that even the youngest members of your family can participate in the same rides and attractions as the rest of the family. On my baby’s first visit to Disney, she was only 5 months old, and was able to ride nearly everything that the rest of us rode that day.

Here are the attractions I recommend for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers:

Disneyland Park

  • Alice in Wonderland (Fantasyland)
  • Buzz Light Year Astro Blaster (Tomorrowland)
  • Casey Jr. Circus Train (Fantasyland)
  • Disneyland Railroad
  • Disneyland Monorail (Tomorrowland)
  • Dumbo (Fantasyland)
  • Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage (Tomorrowland)
  • It’s a Small World (Fantasyland)
  • Jungle Cruise (Adventureland)
  • King Arthur Carrousel (Fantasyland)
  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (Fantasyland)
  • Mickey’s Toon Town
  • Peter Pan’s Flight (Fantasyland)
  • Storybookland Canal Boats (Fantasyland)
  • Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room

California Adventure

  • Disney Jr. Live on Stage! (Hollywood Land)
  • King Triton’s Carousel (Pixar Pier)
  • The Little Mermaid- Ariel’s Undersea Adventure (Pixar Pier)
  • Monsters Inc., Mike & Sully to the Rescue (Hollywood Land)
  • Toy Story Midway Mania (Pixar Pier)
  • Turtle Talk with Crush (Hollywood Land)

If you’re looking at the Disneyland website, you will notice that there are other rides in the parks with no height requirements that are not listed here— that’s because there are several rides young children may ride, but I do not recommend.

If you’re unsure if a certain ride would be a good idea for your baby or toddler I would suggest watching a ride-through on YouTube. That is a great way to see if the ride will be appropriate for your little one.

And when you’re in the parks, don’t forget about the amazing Baby Care Centers located in both Disneyland Park and Disney’s California Adventure. They have changing facilities, a nursing mothers room, and even sell essentials- such as baby food, formula, and diapers.
