Often to the dismay of families traveling with little ones, there are height restrictions for most theme park rides. But in Orlando, the "You must be taller than" sign can actually be a milestone moment with all of the theme park rides designed just for toddlers in mind. Family travel expert Kendra Thornton shares some great tips that will answer that most anticipated question, "Am I tall enough?"
Orlando's area theme parks make that an easy question to answer with entire areas completely devoted to preschool-age children. In these "lands" both kids and adults can enjoy making memorable vacation moments, together.
Kendra's Toddler Tips:
#1. At Walt Disney World, they can spend the day flying on Dumbo and enjoy other classic Disney fairytale stories magically brought to life in the newly expanded Fantasyland area located in the Magic Kingdom Park. You can also enjoy many other toddler friendly experiences in each of the four Disney theme parks.
#2. At Universal Orlando, little ones can monkey around with Curious George in Curious Goes To Town inside Universal Studios Florida and go for a spin with "The Cat in the Hat," himself through the imaginative and playful storybook world of Seuss Landing in Universal's Islands of Adventure.
#3. Become little adventurers while discovering all the wonders of the world around them at SeaWorld and tackle the sizable Shamu's Happy Harbor which centers around a four-story net climb with a series of winding tunnels and slippery slides.
#4. The area's newest theme park, LEGOLAND Florida, has a new area entirely dedicated to young children. DUPLO Valley is the ideal place for toddlers to play with farm-themed attractions, an air-conditioned indoor play area, and a water play area.
