Experiences at Disney World for Little Kids
Whether you are a frequent visitor to Disney World, or you are looking to do something different for a special occasion, trying a new experience can be a lot of fun. However, many tours and other add-ons have age restrictions. Here are a few ideas to add a new experience to your Disney trip that’s fit for the youngest kids in your family!
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
Bibbity Bobbity Boutique in Magic Kingdom can transform your little one into a princess or knight! Guests can choose from a variety of packages that include treatments like hair styling, makeup, costumes, and accessories. Cost depends on the package chosen and can range from $99.95 plus tax to $450 plus tax. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is very popular, so reservations are highly recommended. They can be made online. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is offered for children ages 3 to 12.
Dessert parties are a fun way for guests of all ages to enjoy fireworks at the Magic Kingdom! There are three different dessert party options: Seats & Sweets, Pre-Party, or After Party. All of the options include a dessert buffet at Tomorrowland Terrace with sweets, a few savory options, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Seats & Sweets includes a reserved table at Tomorrowland Terrace from which you can watch the fireworks whereas the other two options offer a standing viewing area in the Plaza Garden. Pre-Party guests enjoy the dessert buffet prior to fireworks, and After Party guests enjoy their desserts after the fireworks end. Seats & Sweets costs $119 to $129 per adult and $75 per child (ages 3 to 9). The Pre-Party and After Party cost $99 to $109 per adult and $59 per child (ages 3 to 9). All of the dessert parties can be booked online.
Caring for Giants
For little ones who love animals, there’s the Caring for Giants tour in Animal Kingdom. This one-hour guided tour gives guests a closer look at the elephants, their care, and conservation efforts to protect wild elephants. Kids as young as 4 may join the tour. The tour costs $39 per person before tax and can be reserved online.
Behind the Seeds
Another tour open to preschool-aged children is Behind the Seeds in EPCOT. This one-hour walking tour takes guests backstage into the four greenhouses of The Land Pavilion that you see when riding Living with the Land. A cast member will teach guests about the fish farm, unusual crops from around the world, and the latest plant-growing techniques. Behind the Seeds is $39 to $45 per person before tax and can be booked in advance online. Participants must be at least 3 years of age.
Pony Rides at Fort Wilderness
At a stable near Pioneer Hall at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, young children can go for pony rides. These rides are offered on a walk-in basis only and cost $10 per person. To ride, kids must be at least 3 years of age, under 80 pounds, and no taller than 48”, and a parent or guardian must lead the pony.
