Kids on attraction

    We are planning a trip for Spring Break to Disney World. My kids will be 5 and 7 when we go. Last time we went they were big enough for Barnstormer but not any of the other coasters. What order would you recommend doing the coasters in for this trip?

    Hello Megan and thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    In my own personal opinion the current age of your Mouseketeers is now practically perfect in every way to enjoy visiting Walt Disney World Resort this coming Spring Break because at age 5 & 7 yEars old the magic and wonder is still super real and because they've grown they are able to experience even more Attractions and of course cope with the additional walking associated with Disney vacations.
    I honestly don't believe there is a recommended order as such for enjoying Attractions in but I would say to revisit The Barnstormer and work your way up from there... it may be helpful to know it's possible to filter Attractions by height and accessibility which should assist when making FastPass+ selections prior to your visit; to apply the filters simply visit the Attractions webpage where they can be easily viewed via the Filter By tab.
    I would say your kiddos would be tall enough to board these Attractions which are filtered to be suitable for height 38" (97cm) or shorter and include Alien Swirling Saucers Slinky Dog Dash within Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios which could be a super fun step up from The Barnstormer!
