The Magic Kingdom is the destination for every Disney fan with young children. It is really full of many wonderful things to do ranging from the typical to things that are less known. We are now at a point where there are so many things we love doing with our three years old toddler twins at the Magic Kingdom.
I really wanted the Magic Kingdom to be the girls first Disney experience, but infants are unpredictable and throw in the fact that there is two of them? Forget it! Our first attempt was a failure and we didn’t make it out of the parking lot, but the second attempt when they were 9 months old was amazing! We had the travelling Tula from my Due Date Mommy Facebook group and it was a beautiful September day. Since then we have enjoyed many, many visits and some favorites evolve and change. One thing does remain the same, if your kid is afraid of fireworks beware that they go off during the stage show. We always have to prepare for a Stella fireworks freak-out.
My Top 10 Things I Love Doing With My Toddler Twins at the Magic Kingdom
1. We like to take the ferry from the Transportation & Ticket Center. There is plenty of room for the stroller, we’ve had some great experience with the Cast Members, and it’s always such a nice view coming in.
2. Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, or as we know it, The “up and down”. We don’t always get to go on this one as you can’t get FastPasses and it is hit or miss if there is a line or not. Both girls always enjoy this attraction.
3. The Barnstormer which was our first Roller Coaster! It’s just long enough, and we get lots of excited screams on this one.
4. Dumbo the Flying Elephant, not only the attraction where we get to make Dumbo go up and down, but also the play area before the ride too. There are a few slides that we love, and a little area where you can play chords and make fake fireworks go off! We aren’t scared of those kind of fireworks.
5. The Character Meet and Greet at is our favorite character location. This is the first place that we got to meet Daisy and where Goofy signed Stella’s Goofy hat. This location has four of our favorite characters, Minnie & Daisy and Donald & Goofy, however you can only see two at a time. I would say the only negative is you can clearly see the other two characters so be prepared to distract your kids from the other two or you’ll have to go wait in that line next.
6. Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid, although it isn’t a secret among my friends that Ariel has never been high on my personal list of Disney Princesses, my girls really love her and she is growing on me. This attraction has fun music, you get to go “underwater” and I was lucky enough to get a tour of the attraction while it was under construction!
7. It’s a Small World is an attraction that many make fun of, but it has always been one that I have always loved and now my kids do too. Stella sings the song the entire time we’re in the queue, and they both just spend the whole time looking around while we ride it. For a while Stella made Grandpa find videos on YouTube that were ride-throughs of the ride so she could sit and watch it.
8. Raspberry Lemonade slushies at the Cheshire Café was one of our favorites, but alas has gone away. Their replacement is pretty good. It’s the Wonderland Slushy which comes with Raspberry Lemonade with a Grape and Candy-coated Straw. Yum! We are continuing to explore our favorite options. It’s always hot in Florida so it’s a great treat.
9. The Mad Tea Party, which was one of the attractions we went on when we visited with them the first time. Stella slept through the ride and Sadie just watched everything. Now they love to spin and spin, often trying to help us spin.
10. Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room is another of our first attractions we went on at the Magic Kingdom. We really just went to it because it didn’t have a line and was air conditioned but the girls loved it! All the music, the birds, the flowers created quite the experience for them and they continue to love it.
This list probably changes once a month as there are so many things we love to do with our twins at the Magic Kingdom. There are so many corners of the Magic Kingdom to explore and Stella is anxiously awaiting the day that she is tall enough to ride the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. That day is coming soon!
