Magic Kingdom Attractions with Infants

The Magic Kingdom is filled with attractions for children of all ages.  Depending on their age, the children may not appreciate the attraction  If you are headed there with wee babies - or are a local that want to get some great photo ops - this list will help you know which attractions are best!

My first piece of advice, as with all small or willing children, is to babywear!  Find a carrier that is comfortable for YOU and the baby (yes, these do exist!) and you can be hands free - very helpful in long lines, while riding attractions, anywhere you can't have the stroller.  I even had my son sleeping in a wrap while eating at several restaurants!
2 popular and comfortable options of baby carriers - wrap and ergo!

  • Main Street, U.S.A.
    • Walt Disney Railroad
    • Main Street Vehicles
  • Tomorrowland
    • Tomorrowland Transit Authority/Wedway Peoplemover
    • Carousel of Progress - great for naptime/feeding/changing/resting
    • Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor - same as CoP
    • Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters - strap the baby on and play the game!
  • Fantasyland
    • Every attraction currently open in Fantasyland is infant friendly!  With an infant strapped on in a carrier, you can enjoy all of the rides while they take in the colors and explore the world.
      • The Great Goofini and the Snow White Mine Train have height requirements!
    • Walt Disney World Railroad Station 
  • Liberty Square
    • Similar to Fantasyland, these attractions are available to children of all ages.  Napping child but want to visit the Haunted Mansion?  It's nice and dark - perfect for nursing or napping.  Need a longer break?  The Hall of Presidents or even the Liberty Boat.  Note - the Liberty Boat doesn't have much available seating, so isn't necessarily as relaxing, but still offers beautiful views and a serene ride! 
  • Frontierland 
    • The Country Bear Jamboree - enjoy those bears?  Share the music with the little ones!
    • Walt Disney World Railroad has another stop here!
  • Adventureland
    • Every attraction in Adventureland is for children of all ages.  The Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse might not be as enjoyable carrying an infant, but the option is yours!
**For the attractions with height limits - such as Space and Splash Mountain - the Rider Swap Option is available and can even be used in combination with the fast pass!**

  1. Love the ERGO - I use it with my three yr old on my back sometimes!

  2. I love that! My son refuses to even try back carry! He won't go back in the ergo at all :( I'm hoping I'll be able to hip carry him in my *new* ring sling (I'm too excited to learn that one!)! But those carriers were seriously a lifesaver before he could walk! #babywearing

  3. Thank you so much for this blog! I did Epcot today with a 9 mnth year old and I was very disappointed that I left the baby carrier in the hotel room. Pre-baby I didn't realize how most of the activities require you to leave the stroller outside.
