Visiting Walt Disney World with Young Children

Visiting Walt Disney World with Young Children

There’s a common misconception that children “should” be at least certain age before visiting Walt Disney World. Many are worried that there won’t be enough for them to do as an infant and toddler. Regardless of age, there is SO much to at Walt Disney World!! At the Magic Kingdom alone, there are over 30 rides and shows, and this doesn’t include the many character experiences, castle stage shows, parades and fireworks found at this park.

Of these 30+ rides and shows, only 6 of them have a height requirement to ride:

–          Tomorrowland Speedway (32”)

–          Goofy’s Barnstormer (35”)

–          Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train (38”)

–          Big Thunder Mountain Railway (40”)

–          Splash Mountain (40”)

–          Space Mountain (44”)

In addition to there being plenty of attractions for young children, Disney also offers Rider Switch. If a child does not meet the height requirement (or if a child decides at the front of the line that they don’t want to ride anymore), no problem! With Rider Switch, one adult can wait with the non-rider(s) while the rest of the party enjoys the attraction. When the other adult returns, they can supervise the non-riding guests, and the waiting adult can board the attraction without having to wait in the regular line again. This way, everyone still gets to visit their favorite attractions.


Traveling with an infant? Disney is super accommodating. Each theme park has a centrally-located Baby Care Center. In these amazing Baby Care Centers, you’ll find:

–          Private nursing room with rocking chairs 

–          Changing room with tables and a women’s restroom

–          Feeding area with highchairs 

–          Kitchen with microwave and sink

–          Main room with television, table and seating

–          On-site shop offering formula, baby food, juice, diapers, wipes, sunscreen, over-the-counter medications and clothing for purchase

In addition, most of the restrooms throughout the entire resort have changing tables (and many of them in the parks actually have two changing tables to help expedite diaper changes). When staying on property at a Disney Resort, they are able to provide you with a pack and play or crib (this varies by resort) as well as bed rails at no additional charge. Prefer a crib for your little one? There are many companies that offer delivery services for crib (and stroller) rentals. Prices are reasonable and they make it so easy for families to travel while maintaining some of the comforts of home.

Did you know that children under the age of 3 are FREE at Walt Disney World? They don’t require a ticket to enter the parks and if you’re not ordering a meal specifically for them at a restaurant, they can eat free as well! So that character buffet you were thinking about going to with Mickey and Minnie – your little one can eat to his or her heart’s content for free. I truly encourage everyone to go with their children before their 3rd Birthday so that they can take advantage of this and save a few bucks!!

Still worried that your kiddos will be exhausted by all of it? They probably will be. But that helps them take great naps and get a good night’s sleep!

Topolino’s Terrace  Breakfasts Review

Topolino’s Terrace Breakfasts Review

This past December I was lucky enough to be among the first guests stay at Disney’s newest resort, Riviera. The resort is simply gorgeous. The lobby was small and intimate and the grounds were gorgeous.

I’m not usually one for character meals, especially without my kids. Don’t get me wrong, I love the characters just as much as the next Disney fan but I usually find the food to be lackluster and they seem to take much longer than the average meal. My current favorite character meal is Trattoria Al Forno (um hello Flynn Ryder)…or I should say WAS because Topolino’s Terrace  just bumped!

reakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends

Start your morning with breakfast at this beautiful rooftop restaurant offering an exclusive storybook dining experience. The prix fixe menu offers delicious choices to please everyone in the family.

While enjoying breakfast and the bird’s eye views, meet some of your favorite Disney Friends for a perfect photo and autograph opportunity! You may find yourself mingling with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck—stylishly dressed from head to toe in outfits unique to Topolino’s Terrace!

Breakfast begins with fresh pastries—delicious Danish, croissants, blueberry scones, or Epi bread—a rustic pull-apart baguette shaped like a wheat stalk. Your choice of entrées follows: Quiche Gruyère with house-made pancetta, Sour Cream Waffle, Wood-fired Butchers Steak, Smoked Salmon, Spiced Sausage Hash, Two Eggs Any Style, plant-based “Egg” Omelet and more. Whichever you select, breakfast in this charming café is an enchanting way to start your day.

The restaurant was elegant and tastefully decorated. The views a top the Riveria were simply incredible!

We ordered our drinks, coffee and orange juice, and were brought this adorable presentation of breakfast breads and pastries. The best part? They were served with butter, jam and NUTELLA! YES NUTELLA! I had died and gone to heaven!!

We sampled a few things, which were all tasty but I wanted to save room for my breakfast. My dining partner ordered the Quiche Gruyère ( House-made Pancetta, Roasted Potatoes, Field Greens, Lemon Vinaigrette ) while I ordered the Wood-fired Butchers Steak ( Polenta, Pomodoraccio Tomatoes, Roasted Onions, Wild Mushroom Conserva, Watercress). I’m a sucker for a good steak and this did not disappoint! It was flavorful and cooked perfectly!!

Let’s talk about how stinking adorable the characters were!! They were all artists; Mickey was a painter, Minnie a Poet, Donald a Sculpture and Daisy a ballerina! Just adorable! And they had a little moment with music where they danced around the room with the kids!

After breakfast, we wandered outside to the terrace for the incredible views!

I would not hesitate to come here again…in fact I’ll be joining my friends during our 5th Annual Girls Getaway Weekend here in April of 2020! This is one of my new favorite meals on property so don’t delay….add this to your must do meals at Walt Disney World!
