Best Rides that Everyone Can Enjoy at Disney World

Best Rides that Everyone Can Enjoy at Disney World

One of the best things about vacationing at Disney World is that it is built for families to enjoy together. There is a classic story of how Walt came to dream up the idea of a Disneyland. He was sitting on a park bench while his daughters were off enjoying the carousel at a local park. Walt wished that there was a way to enjoy these rides with his daughters and thus began the dream of building Disneyland. So we loved the idea of sharing with you what we think are the best rides everyone can enjoy at Disney World.

While not every ride at Disney World is free of restrictions, like height requirements, there are lots of great rides that EVERYONE in your family can go on. This is holding true to the original philosophy that Walt Disney had for his theme parks.

Magic Kingdom Rides for Everyone

Do you like to laugh? Then head on the Jungle Cruise! They are full of jokes (Read the Ten Best Jungle Cruise Jokes!) and while not all of them may be considered “good jokes” the crew here will have you entertained as you travel across the rivers of the world!

Epcot Rides for Everyone

Living With the Land

Best Rides that Everyone Can Enjoy at Disney World 5

This is one is my favorite from all the Epcot options. Living with the land is a slow-moving boat ride that focuses on plant life and the cycle of it. In the end, you travel through working greenhouses that grow food that Disney serves in its restaurants!

Mine, mine, mine!! Jump aboard your calm mobile on the hunt for Nemo who has gone missing! If you manage to track down Nemo, I recommend stopping next-door to say hi to Crush. Have your kids prepare questions as Crush will take questions from anyone.

Hollywood Studios Rides for Everyone

Toy Story Mania

This ride will whip you around a bit but any height is allowed here! Challenge your family members and see who has the skills to rank supreme on Toy Story Midway Mania! While this is the only ride that doesn’t have a height requirement at Hollywood Studios that doesn’t mean this park isn’t good for families with young ones. This park is packed with shows like Frozen Sing Along, Beauty and the Beast and the Little Mermaid.

The Animal Kingdom Rides for Everyone

Kilimanjaro Safaris

This a great 20-minute attraction that lets you get up close and personal with the animal of Africa. Kilimanjaro Safaris day or night is a great attraction for the whole family. Be sure to have those cameras ready you never know who you will see or who might just come up and say hi! We recommend taking a second safari ride late in the day if the line isn’t too long.


Na’vi River Journey

This is a slow-moving boat ride through the land of Pandora. It is dark but outside of bugs, there isn’t much to be considered scary on this ride. Take in the sounds of Na’vi and relax as you watch all the cool details of this new planet.

These rides are perfect to bring the entire family on, even the young ones! Walt Disney World rides with no restrictions.
