1. It’s a Small World

It’s a Small World

As a kid, there was nothing I enjoyed more than taking a leisurely cruise around the world while discovering that, yes, it really is a small world after all.

By far one of the all-time best Disneyland kids’ rides, “It’s a Small World” offers a relaxing and fun introduction to other cultures as you meet children from countries around the globe!2

Be prepared to hum the ride’s iconic song long after you get off, and also be sure to check out the unique clock tower show that takes place outside the entrance every 15 minutes.

2. Mad Tea Party

Mad Tea Party

Even when you’re late for a very important date, you’re always on time for the Mad Tea Party, where spinning teacups offer a whirlwind of fun for guests of all ages.

Afraid you’ll be too dizzy to stand back up afterward?

Fear not, since you have complete control over how quickly or slowly your teacup spins.

3. Dumbo the Flying Elephant

Join Dumbo as he learns how to fly and takes to the skies with you and your kids along for the journey.

While timid toddlers might be a bit scared after first leaving the ground, this ride truly is gentle enough for even the youngest visitors.
