Disney Vacation Guide: Rides for Young Children

You know there’s something for everyone in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Some attractions are more suited for big kids, some for adults, and of course, there are rides perfect for the youngest members of your family. And seeing the faces of the young children light up with excitement is one of the things that makes a trip to Walt Disney World so magical.

Here’s a bit of information on two rides you’ll want to be sure to treat the kids to on your visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom:

Tricera Top spin

Soar in circles around what has magically appeared to become a giant spinning top in the DinoLand USA section of the Animal Kingdom. Take hold of the joystick to make your dinosaur fly higher or lower on this leisurely, bright and colorful ride. As cartoon comets fly past look out for a dino-sized object rising from the middle of the giant top!

Tip for Tricera Top spin:

This is the dinosaur version of the Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride in the Magic Kingdom.

Primeval Whirl

Which way will your colorful “time machine car” go next? This unpredictable spinning coaster is wild, round and round, whirling fun with its short turns, tight curves and quick dips along a fun, colorful dinosaur-themed track.

Tip for Primeval Whirl:

A tight squeeze for 4 adults and larger guests may not fit comfortably. Minimum Height: 48 inches (122 cm)
