On the other side of the park is Tomorrowland. Make sure you don’t miss the Small World ride on your way there. The best rides for kids in Tomorrowland is the Little Nemo Submarine ride, Astro Blasters (it’s a Buzz Lightyear themed shooting ride), Captain EO (Michael Jackson 3D movie), and Autopia. They also have a fun outdoors Star Wars show for kids; they bring up 10 or 12 kids to learn how to be Jedi’s.
Speaking of Small World… If you are going to catch a parade while you are there, try to see it in the curb area in front Small World. It gets very crowded on Main Street, and you won’t need to walk all the way across the park to get back.
The rides I would avoid for young kids are: Star Tours (very shaky and causes motion sickness), the rollercoasters (Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Matterhorn, etc.), The Mad Tea Party (just spins for 5 minutes). I would AVOID “Innoventions”-it’s a walk-through display about futuristic inventions and is very boring.
Something to remember is that there is a train that circles the park all day long. If you need to go from one land to another, use the train! You will love the ride, and your feet will love you! There are 5 or 6 stops all around the park.
Something else to see is Pixie Hollow to meet Tinkerbell. Once you enter the area, you are the size of a fairy and you can take pictures and chat with Tink and her friends.
One last thing is that you should check into is using the Fast Passes. On certain rides (usually the adult ones like Haunted Mansion, Indiana Jones, etc., but Pirates and Winnie Pooh does, too), you use your ticket to scan the bar code on the back. It will print out a ticket with a time range printed on it. When you return to the ride during that time frame you get to move to the head of the line. These are FREE, and will save a LOT of time standing in line if there are rides you want to go on. The map you get when you enter the park will tell you what rides offer Fast Passes.
Have fun at the park! I wish I was there with you!
What do you think, Mouseketeers? Did I steer her right with things to do for children under the age of five? What other attractions would you guide her family to?
