Top 10 Rides/Attractions for Babies & Toddlers at Hollywood Studios

Hollywood Studios is a must see for anyone who has children no matter what age they might be. I hear some people say they skip going to this park because it does not have as many rides as Magic Kingdom, but let me tell you, this is one of our favorite parks! I am going to share with you the top 10 rides and attractions for babies and toddlers.

  1. Honey I Shrunk The Kids Movie Set Adventure--This is a great place to let the kids run wild and blow off some steam. This is a great playground complete with slides, secret hiding spots and life size ants!

     2.   Beauty and The Beast Live On Stage-Great show for the whole family. 25 minute show which will really captivate children of all ages, especially toddlers.

     3.   Disney Junior Live on Stage-This is such a fun, interactive show. The show is 24 minutes long and includes Mickey Mouse Clubhouse characteres, Handy Manny and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. My children absolutely loved every second of this show and wanted to go back again. Note that you do not have an actual seat, this takes place in an open room and you are asked to sit on a carpet. The children are encouraged to dance and sing along.

     4.   Voyage of The Little Mermaid-This was my personal favorite show that we saw out of all the shows we saw during our vacation! I have always loved Ariel but this show really brings her to life. The show is 17 minutes and takes place inside. Beware that the big huge Ursala can be scary to little children. The show is somewhat dark and loud.

     5.   Toy Story Mid Way Mania--Grab a Fastpass as this ride can often have an hour wait time. This is a super popular ride and a must see. We usually ride this when the park first opens and then grab a fast pass for later in the day. The ride goes quickly but sure is fun. It is a lot of spinning so if your children get motion sick they might have to avoid this ride. This is such a fun 4D ride that puts you in a carnival like game where each person is able to shoot a laser gun. Be sure to save time afterwards to meet Buzz Lightyear and Woody across the street from this ride.

 6. Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun Parade--This is such a fun parade and a must see. Grab a front row seat in the shade if possible.

     7.    Star Wars Jedi Training Academy-If you are a Star Wars fan this is a must see attraction. Twelve guests between the ages of 4 and 12 years of age will be selected for each show. The young Jedis-to-be are then instructed to arrive 30 minutes prior to the assigned show so that they can receive further special instructions. I suggest going straight here when the park first opens if your child wants to be selected. There are usually about 10 shows per day.

    8.    Muppet Vision 3D-We did not check this out as my kids were just too tired. This is on my to do list for our next trip though :) I have heard it is great!

   9.    Studio Backlot Tour-This is a fun journey through a movie set complete with water and a huge fire (the fire scene can scare young children). My children loved this except the ride is a little loud and did startle my baby.

  10.    The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow-This is a new attraction and I have not yet been able to check it out but I have heard that it is just a recap of the movies and nothing amazing.
