What Can I Do At Disney's Hollywood Studios with Little Kids and Babies?

This post contains affiliate links. 

Hollywood Studios.  I'll be honest, this park isn't a great one for little kids (and babies) that enjoy rides.    As I write this there are huge sections blocked off to the public due to construction; I haven't seen all the plans (I like surprises) but I am hoping that they build some more family friendly rides.

Can I bring my little ones on rides at Disney's Hollywood Studios?

Currently there are only two rides for guests of any height, both are listed below.
  • The Great Movie Ride
  • Toy Story Mania!

Are the shows appropriate for all ages?

Yes!  Also, Beauty and the Beast is an absolute must see for any Disney experience.  The singing and the dancing will keep everyone entertained.  Random fact: This show started on November 22, 1991, which was also the day the animated classic opened, which was the first time that a stage show opened the same day as the movie that inspired it.
  • Muppet*Vision 3D
  • Voyage of The Little Mermaid
  • Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage
  • Disney Jr Live on Stage
  • For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration
  • Indiana Jones™ Epic Stunt Spectacular!

What characters can I meet?

There are a few characters that are currently exclusive to Hollywood Studios.
  • Chewbacca 
  • Kylo Ren 
  • Stormtroopers* 
  • The Jawas ** 
  • Green Army Men from Toy Story 
  • Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates 
  • Sofia the First 
  • Doc Mcstuffins
  • Olaf
*The Stormtroopers frequently patrol the area in character.  This means that they don't really stop and pose for pictures.  They do interact with guests though, so be prepared!

**Not technically a "Meet and Greet", but they walk around and interact with guests in the Launch Bay.  They might even do some trading, since they are traders by trade.

What can't my little kids and babies ride?

Below are the rides that you will need to utilize the rider swap option if you have little ones in your group.

Star Tours – The Adventures Continue Height: 40in
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ Height: 40in
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith Height: 48in

What else is at Hollywood Studios?

If you have Star Wars lovers this really is a fun place to be.  As you saw above, there are some great Star Wars Character meets, plus there's Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, which is a super interactive experience for the kids.  There's a fun Stormtrooper show on the main stage.  The Star Wars fireworks are also quite enjoyable.  Of course, Fantasmic, the night show, is absolutely fantastic.

Keep in mind that things at Walt Disney World are constantly changing.  Something that might be there today might not be there tomorrow.  Something that is there today might not have been there yesterday.  If you notice something on this page that needs updating please leave me a comment.  This park in particular will be evolving a lot over the next couple of years!
