    I know dumb question, but what Fantasyland rides would be good for a 2 year old?

    Ok, heres the reason why I ask this. Its because my mom fired the daycare provider (personal reasons)

    and I took over and been watching him so my mom can go to work (which is in San Diego and we live in Oceanside) Monday-Friday. So we don't have anyone to watch him while we (Mom, me, lil bro and gf) go.

    By the way we are staying at the hotel for 2 nights, and mom said if her or my little bro, get tired, she wont mind goig back to the hotel to chill and play wedding dashers and diner dash on her iphone while me and gf go on rides and stuff.

    Re: I know dumb question, but what Fantasyland rides would be good for a 2 year old?

    Not a dumb question I would think it would depend on the child, but I would suggest Dumbo, Teacups, Alice, Peter Pan, Casey Jr, Carousel, Storybook Canal, Small World and maybe Pinocchio and Snow White. I would also travel over to Pooh, depending on the child you could do Pirates and Haunted Mansion. You could also do Tiki Room and Astro Blasters, and of course don't forget to go to Toon Town.

    Re: I know dumb question, but what Fantasyland rides would be good for a 2 year old?

    Not a dumb question really. For a 2 year old, I wouldn't recommend Mr. Toad, Snow White, Pinocchio as they have some scary moments that might be too intense for a 2-year old, but its up to you. I would say the recommended rides are:

    1. Peter Pan
    2. Alice in Wonderland
    3. Tea Cups
    4. Casey Jr.
    5. Storybook
    6. Small World
    7. Carousel
    8. Dumbo

    At least you don't have to worry about Matterhorn as they won't be tall enough at that age.

    Re: I know dumb question, but what Fantasyland rides would be good for a 2 year old?

    There are two year olds, and then there are 2 year olds. By that, I mean, some are more active then others. I would think there are a lot of rides that a 2 year old can ride, and they are not just in Fantasyland. It does depend on the 2 year old, and if they are afraid of anything, or not.

    Here's my list off the top of my head that I have seen the youngsters as small as 2 on.

    The Train, of course.
    Jungle Cruise
    Pooh
    Buzz Lightyear
    Nemo
    Mark Twain
    Columbia
    POTC

    Now since you asked specifically for Fantasyland rides, I'd say in order to avoid any tears in the dark, stick with:

    Dumbo,
    Carousel
    Casey Jr.
    Storybook Land
    Maybe, the Tea Cups, but don't spin the wheel

    Re: I know dumb question, but what Fantasyland rides would be good for a 2 year old?

    Some rides as lighthearted as Fantasyland would seem, are rather frightening for people of any age. Here are the ones I suggest:

    1. Dumbo
    2. Casey Jr.
    3. Storybook
    4. Peter Pan
    5. King Arthur's Carousel
    6. Small World
    7. Tea cups (kids like to go in around in fast circles, haha)

    Thanks everyone I did not want to ask that question, but I never really went on rides with little kids and its been a while since I have been to Disneyland. So I forgot if there some rides that u had to be a certain age or height and whatnot.

    Re: I know dumb question, but what Fantasyland rides would be good for a 2 year old?

    You know the child better than any of us. Disneyland has so much to see and do. In fact some little ones are happy just exploring, and not riding rides at all.

    I think it's great that you have asked this question, in preparation of taking a 2 year to Disneyland.

    Think about what the child enjoys in his homelife, and I am sure there's something comparable there at Disneyland.

    Re: I know dumb question, but what Fantasyland rides would be good for a 2 year old?

    In my experience, Casey Jr has been the 100% winner. Also Storybook, teacups, Dumbo and carousel are good.

    As for the dark rides...Some kids can be okay with the darkness, scary moment, and loud noises, but a lot i have known have really been upset with them around that age.

    All the young kids I've taken to Disneyland have left Snow White crying. Because it's dark and rather scary. So it depends on the child. But I personally think, its one of the scarier dark rides.

    ToonTown is a wonderful place for kids to explore. I myself love to explore the place.
