9 Ways Babies & Toddlers Can Have Fun at New Fantasyland!

This week, the New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida had its grand opening celebration. My family and I were invited to attend the media events so we could experience all that New Fantasyland has to offer and learn more about this Magic Kingdom expansion.

New Fantasyland is now twice the size it used to be, which means there are new attractions, dining options, and lots of beautiful scenery to go with it. And, don’t worry, most of your favorites are still a part of Fantasyland, so coupled with the new offerings, you are sure to find something for everyone in your family to enjoy, even your babies. Though they may not be able to enjoy some of the bigger rides, babies and toddlers have plenty of options for fun at Fantasyland. Here are some ideas!
