If we had to pick our top 5 rides (based on what our kids like), they would be:

  • Peter Pan’s Flight (one of the longest lines in the parks! We recommend riding at opening for a shorter wait…which can still be up to 30 minutes since everyone tends to run there first)!
  • Dumbo
  • Casey Jr. Circus Train
  • It’s a Small World
  • Mad Tea Party

Rides with longest lines (30 minutes+):

  • Peter Pan’s Flight
  • Dumbo
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Matterhorn

Fantasyland tends to get very crowded by mid-morning/day, so we always suggest starting there if you have a little one. Even on the most crowded days, we’ve been able to ride almost all Fantasyland rides within the first hour or two after opening!
