Rides for little girl?

we are going for DLP for the first time 5.7. Our daughter is 3, almost 4, but she does not like any wild rides. What rides do you recommend for her? Princesses are her "thing" at the moment so lunch/dinner at Auberge is planned We have 2 full days to enjoy the parks.

My dd was just 3 when we went in December! She hated the Snow White ride, too dark and scary for her!

She loved the carousel, dumbo, Peter Pan, Teacups, Storybook boats, Casey Jr and It's A Small World (her absolute favourite) all in Fantastyland. Pirates of The Caribbean (Adventureland) Buzz and Orbitron (Discoveryland) and Cars, Flying Carpets and The Studio Tram Tour in the Studios!

There is the Sleeping Beauty Castle which is an absolute must for any wannabe princess with the sleeping dragon underneath and snoring guard on the balcony level. There was also a Sleeping Beauty show in the castle courtyard when we went, but not sure if this is still on, and the various meet and greats!

She will have a ball!

Agree with what has been said here already. My DD1 was 3.5 yrs when we went last year - she loved IASW and also Peter Pan - think that was her favourite. She also loved going around Alice's Labyrinth.

You now have Mickey Mouse Clubhouse/Playhouse Disney at the Studios too as someone has said - that has to be a winner.

DD1 also liked Stitch Interactive & Animaque in the Studios too. As well as Aladdin's magic carpet ride and also the 'Cars Rally' ride too.

She did find both Snow White & Pinnochio rides quite scary - they are dark and feature heavily on the 'down/villanous' sides to the stories. She also wasn't keen on Pirates of the Carribean as walking thru the tunnels to get to the ride is dark and eerie imo.

There is loads for your DD - she will love it Auberge is fantastic and was the highlight of our trip - hope you don't mind me saying but it's worth booking a table before you go - lots of people get turned away from this place even when the parks are fairly quiet as it's v v popular.
I've been BOO'D!!!

I second what everyone has said, all those rides, shows and parades were completely loved by my DD (age 3). Her favourite ride was TOT closely followed by It's a small world and POTC. POTC is very dark though and the little lad we were with was terrified of it.

The whole of fantastyland - in particular, Dumbo, Small World, Peter Pan, Casey's Train - snow white could be a touch scary for some although pretty tame really. Also Buzz lightyear, Pirates of the caribbean.
