Disney has started narrowing down the opening window for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure at Magic Kingdom in Frontierland. While we may not have an exact day, we at least have a timeframe now.
More exciting news from Disney World was announced today. One of the new rides that has been under construction finally has an opening date.
Earlier this year Disney shared some information about how they are building on the current Jungle Cruise story. Recently, Disney gave a deeper look into what they are planning for this classic attraction.
Taking a break from all the reopening news, Disney announced something else big today. Splash Mountain will be getting a new theme!
Disney made the decision a while back to take out the bride auction scene in this classic ride. They decided to replace it with a different auction scene that uses a famous face from the previous scene.
There are a lot of things that will be happening over the next few years in Disney World. Some of those changes will be happening at Epcot with some new attractions being added.
Today is National Roller Coaster Day and Disney World has plenty of fun coasters to choose from. Each of the four parks have at least one fun roller coaster guests can ride.
I have heard people say “Why are you taking them when they’re so young? They won’t remember it.” I know that little kids won’t remember the trip, but the way I see it is if they have fun then that’s all that matters.
We have taken our kids, at very young ages, to Disney. My daughter was 6 months old for her first trip, two during her second trip, and she’ll be four when we go on the next trip. My son was 4 months on his first trip and he’ll be two when we go next.
Yes, they were both very young for their first trips, but the family had fun. There are so many things for the little ones to do all over Disney property. Not to mention it’s the perfect time to go when they are amazed by the characters. That’s what happened during our last trip. My daughter was so in awe of Ariel, her favorite princess at the time. Every time she was asked a question by Ariel, my daughter would respond, wide-eyed and with a big smile, “Yeah.” She just couldn’t believe she was actually talking to Ariel. It was the cutest thing ever and brought tears to my eyes.
You will be able to find rides for the whole family to go on, you don’t have to worry about that. Both of my kids went on the Haunted Mansion ride when they were very little and had fun.

Downtown Disney even has a train and a carousel that little ones can ride for $2 a ride. The water parks have areas designated for the little ones too.
So Disney has you covered if you are traveling with babies or preschoolers. As long as you include breaks in your day, you should be fine. The breaks do help when traveling with little ones. Even if they don’t nap, just being away from all the stimulation helps. Meltdowns happen, but breaks will reduce the chance of a meltdown and that is good for everyone.
Thanks for reading!
I know you are on vacation and it’s hard to wake up early on vacation, but at Disney World it is definitely worth it to get to the parks early. I will tell you why.
