Wondering what the best rides and attractions are for toddlers at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios? There are a few great ones, and you can probably see them in half a day and then head back to your hotel for a siesta before dinner. If your kiddo is a huge fan of the Disney Junior characters, then definitely set up a Hollywood Studios day. There are some great options for your toddler at Hollywood Studios, but if you are only going for a short trip, you could skip this park in favor of ensuring you get your fill of other parks.
Disney Jr. Live on Stage
Have a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fan in the house? This show is a must. You get to see live action recreations of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First and Jake and the Never Land Pirates. Do not try to be first in line – the seats that are filled first are closest to the stage and it can be difficult to see the show! Sit in the middle section, if possible, to be under the bubbles.
Toy Story Midway Mania
This is a target shooting game that my almost-three-year-old loved! If you have kids that are significantly younger, it would be a good one to skip as it is somewhat jerky.
For the First Time in Forever – a Frozen Sing Along
Just like it sounds, this is your chance to belt out all the Frozen songs you know by heart. This is a live show with an entertaining plot and a great set that is a nice indoor diversion. Great for your Frozen enthusiasts or those that love to sing.
What about the rest?
We think these are the three best rides and attractions at Hollywood Studios for a toddler (we are taking about 1 and 2 year olds), and each one is a sure bet. Three rides and attractions is about right for a full morning of FastPasses, and a half a day is all the time we recommend staying in a park with a toddler (we talk more about that here). Some of the others like Fantasmic, Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage, and Voyage of the Little Mermaid may appeal to some toddlers, but may also be scary or not quite engaging enough. These are better for preschoolers.
