A Perfect Day at Disneyland with Toddlers

10 Things to Do at Disneyland with Toddlers



October 8, 2019

Headed to Disneyland and wondering what you're gonna do all day with a toddler???


Then, you've come to the right place because today we're sharing ten things to do at Disneyland with toddlers!

Disneyland with Toddlers - 10 Things To Do at Disneyland with Toddlers

Yep, we're those moms dressing the babies up in costume.

Koko was Peter Pan. Ellie, Tinker Bell. And Zae was Minnie.

It's so different going to Disneyland with toddlers versus going for your own fun. Usually, we get into the park and start running to make the most of the Fast Pass system. But with kids, it's a different ball game.

Thankfully, there's so much for toddlers to do at Disneyland! We were literally there for 12 hours and didn't get to do all the kids' things.

10 Things to Do at Disneyland with Toddlers


1. Playing in the Fountain 


Let's be real. This was the biggest attraction of the day for the littles. They would've played in this Toontown fountain all day.

2. Dumbo the Flying Elephant


The kids all loved Dumbo! The line was a little long but we had a good time and will definitely be back.

3. King Arthur Carousel


This is another one you can't go wrong with! There was no line, so we just parked the strollers and hopped on.

4. Meeting Characters


So meeting Mickey didn't go quite as planned. The moment Ellie saw him, she started bawling. Which automatically made Koko start crying. But when I've gone with older kids, who know the characters from books and movies, this is always a highlight (Let's be real, for the adults too!).

5. Toontown


Toontown is a great place for kids! The babies would've run around here all day (if we didn't wanna see other parts of the park). 

6. Mad Tea Party

The kids really enjoyed this one as they tried (unsuccessfully) to spin the cups. We were just trying not to get motion sick, so we forgot to snap a photo.

7. Light Up Bubble Wand 


I know this isn't really an attraction and it cost extra $$$ but these Light Up Bubble Wands are fantastic! The kids LOVED this toy! You just can't go wrong with flashing lights and bubbles!

8. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh


The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is another great ride for toddlers. Lots of bright lights!

9. Storytelling at Royal Theatre 

This time around we didn't make it to Storytelling at Royal Theatre. But we've gone before and it was a treat!

10. Parade 


Last but not least, the parades. The music, the floats, the characters. It's all so fun! My personal favorite is Paint the Night but it's not currently playing.

And so much more!

There you have it. Ten things to do with toddlers. And that's not even a full list. Serioulsy, there's also Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, It's a Small World, Storybook Land Canel Boats, Casey Jr. Circus Train, and more!



What about you? What are your favorite toddler-friendly Disneyland attractions?
