Five Rides for Little Guys (and girls) at Disney’s Hollywood Studios


Five Rides for Little Guys (and girls) at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is easily one of our favorite parks.  It’s full of shows, and “relaxing” attractions.  We work a day in at Hollywood Studios in the middle of our trip because it’s an easy park to get through, and there are attractions here that are super fun to do over and over again.  Today, I wanted to share with you five attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that make for tons of fun for little ones.

Five Rides for Little Guys (and girls) at Disney's Hollywood Studios

1.  Toy Story Mania.  Although this attraction can have a VERY long wait, there are so many entertaining things to look at while waiting in line.  As soon as you pass through the entrance, you’er immediately surrounded by  Andy’s toys… size toys, and you almost feel like the toy itself.  You’er surrounded by life size Candyland, a Mr. Potato Head who talks to you, monkeys ina barrel, and Lincoln Logs.  This ride is great fun for younger children because it is fairly slow moving, and even without the 3D glasses on, it’s enjoyable to ride.

2.  The Great Movie Ride.  Another slow moving ride, you are taken back in time and history of the movies.  At the beginning, it’s a little loud while they are acting out the crime scene.  But, with so many enticing characters and movie sets to look at, even the youngest in your travel party can enjoy it.  My favorite part is in the Wizard of Oz when the munchkins start singing.  So fun!

3.  Disney Junior Live on Stage.  If you have a toddler or preschooler in your party, you’ll want to include this!  While enjoying their favorite characters from Disney Junior, you can dance, clap, and sing along with your child.  Little Einsteins, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and Handy Manny make an appearance that their youngest fans look forward to.

4.  Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure.  Looking to give your kids some play time?  Are they tired of waiting in line and just need to run to get some energy out?  Stop by the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure.  I mean, who doesn’t want to play amongst huge Playdoh cans, go down slides of filmstrips, and be cooled off by a leaking water hose?

5.  Voyage of the Little Mermaid and Beauty & the Beast – Live on Stage.  Even the adults and older kids in your party might enjoy these two shows.  Both are fairly short, around 20-30 minutes.  You can relax in the air conditioning, enjoy the classic movies as they come to life on stage.  I would suggest sitting toward the back and on the end of a row, just in case you need to make an exit during the show.

Those are my top five rides for little ones at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Which attraction do you NOT miss?

Magically Yours,

  1. As a former Cast Member at Voyage of the Little Mermaid, I’ll have to make a comment on this one, many many kids, specially the little ones get very scared at the show, first it’s very dark in there and second when Ursula comes out and gives her mean laugh, it’s very loud and kids start too cry immediately. So if you still wanna try make sure you and your party sit all the way to the end of the row towards the exit door and not the entrance door, because from the entrance door you can’t get out during the show. Another thing I’d like to say is that beauty and the beast doesn’t have air conditioning. Toy Story mania can be a little loud and although it’s a slow motion, when it turns it goes a little fast. Disney Junior Live Onstage is awesome for the little ones, they love it!!! I used to work there too and right outside of the show they have the characters from the show to take pictures with and get autographs, they love it!
