As avid Disney enthusiasts, our family couldn’t resist the allure of Disney World Orlando during our Florida vacation. The thought of spending a day at a Disney park fills us with joy rather than apprehension. We spent three magical days exploring the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Epcot, which are just half of the six parks that Disney World Orlando has to offer. To help you plan your visit, here’s our top 10 list of the most fun rides in Disney World Orlando for kids:

Top 10 Kid-Friendly Rides at Disney World Orlando

1. The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Magic Kingdom

This ride tops our list as it’s Floris’ favorite. It may not be the most spectacular, but it’s perfect for young kids. Hop on a magic carpet and soar through the air!

2. Meet and Greets, Magic Kingdom

Meeting your favorite Disney characters is a must when you’re in Disney World. The Disney World app shows exactly where each character is and the wait time. You can take your own photos or have them taken by a professional photographer.

3. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Magic Kingdom

This simple yet fun ride takes you on a journey through the world of Winnie the Pooh and his friends. The queue is filled with various forms of entertainment that the kids might enjoy even more than the ride itself.

4. Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Magic Kingdom

While this is more Kevin’s favorite than the kids’, Floris also enjoyed it. In this interactive ride, you assist Buzz Lightyear by shooting laser beams at targets from your cart. It’s a blast!

5. Tomorrowland Speedway, Magic Kingdom

Experience the thrill of racing in “real life” cars at Tomorrowland Speedway. This ride allows you to take control of the wheel and race across the track. It’s a bumpy ride, but the excitement and fun make it worth it.

6. The Seas with Nemo & Friends, Epcot

Embark on an underwater adventure with Nemo and his friends at Epcot. This ride takes you on a journey through the ocean, offering a unique and immersive experience.

7. Frozen Ever After, Epcot

Unfortunately, we had to skip this ride due to a long queue. However, if your kids are big Frozen fans, be sure to use your fastpass on this ride. To make up for it, we arranged a meet and greet with Anna and Elsa, which was a hit!

8. Parades, Magic Kingdom

Visiting Disney World in Florida without experiencing the parade is like visiting the zoo without seeing the lions – it’s simply not done! Magic Kingdom hosts several types of parades throughout the year, each featuring beautifully decorated parade cars and your kids’ favorite Disney characters. It’s an event you surely cannot miss.

9. Kilimanjaro Safaris, Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom offers more than just a typical zoo experience. The park is beautifully laid out, making it an adventure on its own. The Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction takes you on a thrilling ride through the savanna and jungle, where you’ll encounter hippos, lions, elephants, rhinos, and more. It’s like a mini trip to Kenya, right in the heart of Disney World.

10. Na’vi River Journey, Animal Kingdom

The recently opened Pandora realm in Animal Kingdom is an adventure in itself. It feels like you’re walking through the world of Avatar. The Na’vi River Journey is a must-do. On this ride, you’ll take a boat trip through a wondrous world filled with luminescent plants and peculiar creatures. It’s definitely worth using your fastpass for this one.
