Orlando With Kids

Family travel expert Kendra Thornton recommends experiences for younger children in Orlando.

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 given all of the theme park rides designed just for toddlers. 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.
