    Disney with a 3 year old (and 1 year old)?

    I hope I am posting this in the right forum, if not my apologies. We are planning a family tip to Disneyland in May with our 3 year and 1 year old daughters. My 3 year old will be over 40 inches which opens up more opportunities for going on rides. My question is; What rides would/wouldn’t you take a 3 year old on? I realize that all kids are different, one kid my absolutely love a ride while another is terrified. I would doubt she would like CA Screaming, ToT, or Soaring. But what about Splash and/or big thunder mountain? With the wealth of knowledge and experience on these boards, can you offer your thoughts?

    Splash and big thunder are perfect. They're like the pre-cursor rides to ca screaming and ToT. When I was a little kid I LOVED splash and big thunder. I felt like a big kid cause I could handle the "drops" and "speed" of the coaster. I think your 3 yr old would like those two rides. Pirates is also a must, I went the other day with a group of friends and these two little kids sat behind us with their parents and after the first drop they were giggling wildly and yelled "CAN WE GO ON IT AGAIN!" they were probably around 3 or 4 and it made the whole boat smile.

    My 3 year old (now 5) loved Soarin'! It's just an easy glide, and the smells make it so fun! Don't forget about the Rider Swap program. We took advantage of it on our last trip, and it made it so that we could ride a few of the 'bigger' rides without waiting in line twice.
