#DisneyKids: First Playground Visit at Disney Parks

At Disney Parks, even our playgrounds are driven by story. Whether it’s a whimsical playscape inside the Dumbo attraction in New Fantasyland or the larger than life Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, a first visit to a Disney Parks playground is a memorable experience during a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

We’re continuing our exclusive #DisneyKids series this week with special peek at some first visits to The Boneyard, an open-air playground modeled to resemble a dinosaur dig site specifically for younger children (10 and under) in Dinoland U.S.A. at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

If you’re visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, we’re sharing more fun ideas for the little ones as well as some offers designed with your family in mind on our special preschool page.


  • The playgrounds at all of the parks are my daughter’s favorites. She could play in them for hours. I usually try to be patient and let her play until she is done, but sometimes I get impatient and try to get her to move on to other things. Honey I Shrunk the Kids and the Boneyard are so amazingly themed. We also love Tom Sawyer Island. Magic Kingdom has been through a lot of different playgrounds in my daughter’s 7 years of life: Winnie the Pooh, Toon Town, and now Dumbo and Casey Jr. She has loved them all. She loves the playgrounds at Epcot during Flower and Garden and is sad that they aren’t there all year.

  • The playgrounds have always been a part of our “Disney Story”. Whether climbing up slides at Fort Wilderness Resort or digging in the Boneyard at Animal Kingdom my boys and I grew up as these playgrounds became part of our magical visits to Walt Disney World Resort. They truly are an “attraction” all their own!

  • I remember my first trip to the bone yard. It actually was only a few years ago. Before I had kids I wondered why these areas were in the parks. I thought it was a waste of space because Im at disney! I can play on a playground at ANY park. But now that I have kids I think its so awesome that there is a place for them to bloww off some steam and just be kids. And I love to play myself too!
