    How tall/what age does a child have to be to ride the rides. I know they all differ but my guy is 2 1/2 and wanted to know if he will be able to ride anything and if we can ride stuff with him....

    Hello Crystal!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you are having a magical week.

    I love visiting Disneyland Resort with little ones. You can search all of the attractions by height requirements, ages, etc on the Disneyland Resort Website, but here are a few of our favorite all ages and preschool rides I think your son would enjoy.

    First, at Disneyland Park, seeing Sleeping Beauty’s Castle as you walk down Main Street is not only breathtaking for adults, but even more magical for younger kids! This iconic castle leads you right into Fantasyland where you can ride the infamous Dumbo the Flying Elephant and the Mad Hatter Teacups. After that, head over to Mickey’s Toontown where you can meet Mickey and Minnie, go on Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin and play in Goofy’s playhouse!

    If you will be visiting Disney’s California Adventure Park The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure is definitely a family favorite, even for my older boys. It’s a calm, slow ride with music and scenes from the movie. You can also go on Toy Story Midway Mania and see Buzz and Woody and the gang while playing a fun game. It’s Tough to be a Bug! Is another great area for younger ones with a splash pad, Heimlich’s train and more. 



    There is so much for younger kids to see and do at Disneyland! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your trip!

    See you real soon!
