magic kingdom rides

Fantasyland

  • The Barnstormer (thrill ride): 35 inch minimum height
    • FastPass+ available
    • Disney rates the Barnstormer for “preschoolers, kids”. It is a ‘thrill’ ride in that it is a roller coaster, but it is a ‘junior’ roller coaster designed specifically for the younger crowd. There are only small drops and gentle bends… the Barnstormer is designed to introduce the littles to the world of roller coasters!
    • Accessibility: must transfer from wheelchair/ECV
    • Children under the age of 7 years must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older
    • Rider switch is allowed
    • Service animals are not permitted on the Barnstormer
  • Dumbo the Flying Elephant (slow ride): any height
    • FastPass+ available
    • Disney rates Dumbo for “all ages”. You ride Dumbo around in circles. Little kids absolutely adore this ride. I despise Dumbo  wholeheartedly and refuse to go on it… but it is perfect for little kids. There is always a long line. We prefer the Magic Carpets in Adventureland.

    • Children under the age of 7 years must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older
  • “it’s a small world” (slow ride): any height
    • FastPass+ available
    • Disney rates it’s a small world for “all ages”. Opinions are really divided on small world. You have the smart right people like me who absolutely love this ride and the song and everything about it, and then you have the crazy wrong people who don’t appreciate the awesomeness that is “it’s a small world”. Just sayin’… Climb aboard for the happiest cruise that ever sailed and travel to all 7 continents. Feel free to sing along to the ‘classic anthem of world peace’ as you get to see a cast of traditionally dressed dolls from all around the world. “There’s so much that we share that it’s time we’re aware, it’s a small world after all!”

  • Mad Tea Party (spinning ride): any height
    • FastPass+ available
    • Disney rates Mad Tea Party for “all ages”. This iconic ride is tons of fun, but maybe not for those prone to motion sickness. Even if you don’t touch the spinner wheel in the middle of your tea cup, you will still be moving around the pavilion somewhat… but if you turn the wheel… be prepared for major spinning. Each tea cup can seat up to 5 guests, and all the kids love to ride with Michael because he has the arm strength to really make the tea cup go. However, without the extra spinning this is a pretty smooth ride that even the littles can go on and enjoy.

  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (slow ride): any height
    • FastPass+ available
    • Disney rates the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh for “all ages”. The standby queue for Winnie the Pooh is as much fun as the ride itself as you get to go by Rabbit’s Garden, Piglet’s House, and Eeyore’s Gloomy Place. When you get to the front of the line you’ll climb aboard a giant Hunny Pot and take off into the brought-to-life pages of A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh. This is another smooth ride that has some crazy effects that might scare some younger riders (lets face it, the Heffalump dream scene is like a crazy drug induced nightmare… but that’s just my opinion…).

  • Peter Pan’s Flight (slow ride): any height
    • FastPass+ available
    • Disney rates Peter Pan’s Flight for “all ages”. Climb aboard a galleon and, with some pixie dust, take off for a soaring adventure over London to Neverland. Second star to the right and straight on til morning… Follow in the Darling children’s footsteps through Neverland and look down on mermaids and pirates and so much more. After witnessing a daring duel between Peter and Hook, return to London. This is a neat and whimsical ride, and we love it!
    • Accessibility: must be ambulatory; audio description is available; handheld captioning available
    • Children under the age of 7 years must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older
    • Service animals are not permitted on Peter Pan’s Flight
  • Prince Charming Regal Carousel (slow ride): any height
    • Disney rates Prince Charming’s Regal Carousel for “all ages”. Who doesn’t love a carousel? What makes this one even more amazing is that it is an authentic antique carousel, originally built in 1917 for a Detroit park. Every horse on the carousel is painted white because a white horse is a hero’s horse!
    • Accessibility: must transfer from ECV to wheelchair
    • Children under the age of 7 years must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older
    • Guests with service animals should check with a Cast Member at the Carousel for boarding information 
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (thrill ride): 38 inch minimum height
    • FastPass+ available
    • Disney rates Seven Dwarfs Mine Train for “kids, tweens, teens, adults”. This is a mid-level roller coaster. It has higher drops than the Barnstormer and some sharper turns, but it isn’t crazy wild. Little J is not really a big thrill ride fan but he didn’t hate this one. He didn’t love it either, but he didn’t cry when he got off of it so I guess that’s a win.

  • Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid (slow ride): any height
    • FastPass+ available
    • Disney rates Under the Seas for “all ages”. Climb aboard a clamshell and head under the sea, to become part of Ariel’s world. Follow Ariel’s journey to becoming a human to be with Prince Eric. This is another slow and smooth ride, but the music from the Little Mermaid makes it a lively ride all the same. Be prepared to hear a lot of extra voices singing along… I’m not the only one who does it!
