Walt Disney World Offers Unique Play Areas For The Little Ones

If you are heading to Walt Disney World with little ones, there is no doubt you will want your days to be planned. This not only allows for less frustration when you arrive, but kids seem to do better if there is some sort of structure to their day. However, if you find that your children need some time to run around and have their own playtime, you can find some areas at each of the four Walt Disney World theme parks.

The Magic Kingdom – Tom Sawyers Island

● You’ll find this hideaway over in Frontierland. Hop on a wooden raft and cross the Rivers of America to find your own adventure. Designed for children under 12, there are dusty paths, caves and narrow suspension bridges for your child to explore. Don’t worry about getting lost. There are plenty of maps and signs around the island so you always know where you are.

Epcot – Splash Pads

● This is pretty self explanatory. There are two places at Epcot where your children (and adults too!) can take a break and cool off. There is one by Mission Space and Test Track and one over by Innoventions. Let your little ones have fun chasing the water as it shoots from one side of the pad to the other. Bring towels and maybe a change of clothes. They will get wet!

Hollywood Studios – Honey, I Shrunk The Kids Movie Set Adventure

● Tucked away in The Streets of America, you will find a play area based on the movie Honey, I Shrunk The Kids. It’s a bug sized world with giant leaves, spider webs and plants. Your little ones can slide, crawl, and climb. They will know first hand what it feels like to be the size of a bug.

Animal Kingdom – The Boneyard

● This is probably our family favorite. This dinosaur dig site is located in DinoLand U.S.A. Kids can climb across rope bridges and wander in and out of caves while uncovering dinosaur fossils. There is a multilevel bridge and twisting slides. Although this is wide open and airy, parents will find shady places to sit with fans to keep you cool.

No matter what park you are visiting, you will find some great places for your kids to discover and play!  Where is your favorite place to stop in the parks and let your little ones play?
