Top Toddler Attractions- Disney’s California Adventure Park

We loved California Adventure park, there was so much for my little guy to do which was a very pleasant surprise, here are my favs!

Must Dos!

 Bugs World 

Every ride in this area is a must do if you have a toddler. The lines are short, the rides are quick & they are all a ton of fun for your little one.


Flik’s Flyers

Francis’ Ladybug Boggie

Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train

Tuck & Roll Drive ‘em Buggies

Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters


 My little guy LOVED this ride and we did too.  The line is way shorter than the other Radiator Springs lines but it is so much fun, definitely worth checking out.

Theme Rides


 Monsters Inc- Mike & Sully to the Rescue

 What a great ride! Barely in line and it retains all of the fun of the movie, a definite must with a toddler!

Little Mermaid-Ariel’s Undersea Adventure

 This was another great ride with very little wait time and with all of the fun of the movie, make sure to check it out!


 King Triton’s Carousel

 Carousel’s are great but they aren’t anything too special. If you have the time definitely check it out but if you’re trying to do the entire park in one day, it might not be worth waiting for. That being said, one really good thing about this attraction is that it is right outside California Screamin’ so if you are waiting for some members of your group to ride the roller coaster it offers a fun distraction for your kiddos.

 Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree

 This ride is fun but the wait times tend to be a little long. If you’re kiddo is a huge Cars fan it is probably worth the wait but if I had to choose between this and Luigis’ Rollickin’ Roadsters I would for sure choose the latter.


 Golden Zyphyr’s

 This ride is fun but it’s nothing special.  If you’re little one is afraid of heights, I would definitely give it a miss.

 Mickey’s Fun Wheel

Ok, this isn’t going to be a popular skip but hear me out.  Mickey’s Fun Wheel is the center piece of Pacific Pier but it’s a long wait and a long ride.  Only attempt it if your little one is totally into it and if the wait time is under 30 minutes.  Any longer than that and you’re looking at spending at least an hour by the time you wait, load and ride.

 Toy Story Midway Mania

 Let me start by saying I love Toy Story Midway Mania and my little guy loves Toy Story Midway Mania.  But, the wait time is always really long for this attraction.  I know they have introduced fastpasses recently so if you can snag one, do it! If not, I would give this ride a skip because no ride with a toddler is fun after you’ve waited over an hour in line!
