We all know that planning a Disney World Vacation can be a lot of work–but what about throwing in some little kids into the mix?
So we’re here to help! Below you’ll find the best parks for toddlers with all sorts of fun things to do.
Because the best time to take your kids to Disney World is now! I can promise you that toddlers sometimes have more fun than the bigger kids do. There’s something so sweet about little ones enjoying the park before they start to grow up.

The park that has the best (and most!) rides for toddlers
This award easily goes to our favorite and most popular park, Magic Kingdom. At Magic Kingdom, you’ll find so many parks for the younger ones to enjoy. (Though Haunted Mansion could be scary- depends on your kid, My 2 yr old is NOT a fan! .
Some of our favorites include the Dumbo ride, (especially because it has a hidden playground inside!), and the Jungle Cruise.
We also love to go on the Pirates of the Caribbean and you absolutely HAVE to do the people mover.
The people mover is Walt Disney’s gift to those people that want a solid 10 minutes to do nothing and just relax!
The Best park with the most play places for toddlers
We all know that kids love to play. And while Magic Kingdom has quite a few smaller hidden areas for the littles to run around, they are often small and tucked back.
But if you want an actual playground that you don’t have to catch a boat or jump through a ride to get to, head to Epcot!
Yes! Epcot, which is world renowned for festivals catering to adults, actually has a lot of great stuff for the little ones. You’ll find most of the larger play spaces in Future World. There’s a full-fledged outdoor playground in the middle of worldshowcase.
There’s also two splash pads in this area AND if you go in the back entrance to Mission Space, there is a playground indoors with A/C.
The Best place to meet toddler friendly characters
Meeting characters is so incredibly fun for the little kids! While I’m a big fan of doing character meals with my food allergy babies, I also know it’s fun to meet characters at the parks!
The best place to do this is also the home to all things Star Wars, Hollywood Studios. Here you’ll find lots of crowd favorites like Mickey and Gang, plus the only place you’ll find our lovable snowman Olaf.
AND this is the ONLY place you’ll find some of the beloved Disney Junior Characters to get their signature and a big hug!
The best for Low Stress with a Toddler
I don’t know about you, but after lugging around this stroller and this diaper bag and chasing after too many kids, mama needs a break.
That’s when we get lost in the rain forest and other foreign cultures at Animal Kingdom.
This park is so laid back and easy to explore, with lots of animals and walking paths. There are some super fun and cute shows, and an entire area dedicated to kiddos at DinoLand USA which also has a giant play area!
That’s a wrap!
So, as you can see, each of the parks has something very special for the little ones. However, not all of them have everything. (Though Magic Kingdom is fun if you want to just spend a few days there!)
