Hollywood Studios Kids Tour
Young children always get a kick out of Hollywood Boulevard's wacky street performers and the park's energetic stage shows.
The minute you enter, head straight to Toy Story Midway Mania! and get in line (unless you made a FastPass+ reservation). Everyone loves this busy ride—even young children who have to learn how to operate their spring-action shooters to rack up midway points. If you can ride and come back for your FastPass+ reservation, you'll be your kids' hero.
Now take a deep breath and lead the little ones to hands-on activities inside the Magic of Disney Animation (where they'll first enjoy a short film) and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure, where they can whoop their way through a larger-than-life playground.
Combine lunch with more playtime at the Disney Junior Play ’n Dine at Hollywood & Vine family buffet, where characters from Disney Junior: Live on Stage! mix and mingle with the children. Don't forget your camera and the kids' autograph books!
See the Characters Come to Life
Shows and attractions based on Disney films and TV series really grab young children. Check your Times Guide for performances of Beauty and the Beast: Live on Stage and Disney Junior: Live on Stage! After tots and preschoolers have danced along at the Disney Junior show, they can meet the characters in the Animation Courtyard, then catch a Beauty and the Beast performance or watch Ariel "under the sea" in Voyage of the Little Mermaid.
Check other character greeting locations and times—the Green Army Men from Toy Story put the kids through their marching paces on Pixar Place; Mickey Mouse or The Incredibles stars might turn up at the Magic of Disney Animation. Make time to meet Phineas and Ferb near Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano. Then watch Kermit display his wry wit and Miss Piggy steal the show at Muppet*Vision 3-D. It's not easy being green. . . .
Grab the Spotlight
Jedi wannabes can suit up to clash with the Dark Force at Jedi Training Academy, which is scheduled throughout the day. At the ABC Sound Studio near Star Tours, children ages 4–12 should sign up early in the day for a chance to grab a light saber and let the Force be with them. During each 20-minute show, crowds gather and cheer the kids as they learn to "cut to the left shoulder, step back, and duck!" when clashing with a costumed Darth Vader. Needless to say, the Dark Force can't compete.
