- - Asked by Tammie from Maryland on 2/9/2011
- Hi Tammie,
I love all of the theme parks at Disney World but my # 1 recommendation for a 4 year old boy would be the Magic Kingdom. There are so many things to see and do there for the young and young at heart.
Here are my top recommendations for attractions for a 4 year old boy:
* The Walt Disney World Railroad
* The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
* Jungle Cruise
* Pirates of the Caribbean
* Tom Sawyer Island
* Country Bear Jamboree
* "it's a small world"
* Peter Pan's Flight
* Mickey's PhilharMagic
* Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
* The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
* Mad Tea Party
* Tomorrowland Speedway
* Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
* Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party
* Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade
* Main Street Electrical Parade
* Wishes Fireworks
You can find a list of the attractions with height requirements by visiting the Traveling with Little Ones section on the Disney World Website. There you will find a PDF file on the right side of that page that lists attractions at all four of the theme parks that have height requirements.
You know your child better than anyone, but keep in mind that just because an attraction doesn't have a height requirement, doesn't mean that every child should ride it. Haunted Mansion is a great example of this - there is no height requirement but its dark and once you're on, there is no great way to get off of this 7 minute and 30 second ride.
Let me know if you have any questions about any specific attractions - I'm super happy to assist you. Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
