If you have preschoolers make sure you check out the Disney World Must-Dos for Preschoolers before you go! They have favorites too!

Disney World Must-Dos for Preschoolers

I don’t know the perfect age for your child to go to Disney World, but I do know my husband and I have taken our three kids for a long time and we started them out as babies. All of our kids went for the first time at the age of one. (It just seemed to work out like that.) Our kids are now 7, 4 and 4 and have gone several times throughout the years. Some may call us crazy and we may be. But, I do know we enjoy it and our kids always enjoy it even more. So with that being said, I have gathered the must-dos for preschoolers in every park at Disney World! This will help you make a master plan or itinerary for your upcoming Disney vacation with your favorite preschooler! Your junior princess or pirate will absolutely adore all of these rides and attractions. Here they are in no particular order.

Magic Kingdom

  • Enchanted Tales with Belle: Let Belle capture their attention with mesmerizing tales of her life with the Beast!
  • Peter Pan’s Flight: Come on, what kid (or adult, ME, ME) wouldn’t love this! They can fly!
  • Princess Fairytale Hall: Your little ones can visit and meet their favorite princesses! What a fairytale!
  • Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theatre: Meet your favorite Mouse and take a pic to mark the occasion.
  • Country Bear Jamboree: Your child will love the knee slappin’ good ol’ time with this sing along bear musical.
  • Dumbo the Flying Elephant: Who wouldn’t want to ride this cutie? While you wait, your kids can play in a play area. You don’t even feel like you are waiting in line.
  • It’s a Small World: Enjoy a relaxing boat ride through different countries. You won’t be able to get that song out of your head! 😉
  • Walt Disney World Railroad: This isn’t really a ride, but it has four stops in the Magic Kingdom Park. Make sure you take a ride on it at least once. Little Boys and trains are always a hit!
  • Prince Charming Regal Carousel: Ride like a Prince or Princess aboard a carousel horse inspired by Disney’s Cinderella.
  • Under the Sea- Journey of the Little Mermaid: Do you have a Little Mermaid fan? This attraction is for you! It’s located in the new Fantasyland.
  • Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin: Hop aboard this intergalactic space portal and blast away all the aliens and defeat Zurg. Preschoolers love to control the direction of the space vehicle, but watch out for that if you get motion sickness easily.

  • Turtle Talk with Crush: Dude, sit around Crush’s tank and have a chat. He’s totally cool dude!

  • Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros: Take a low key boat ride through Mexico with the three duck friend Caballeros.
