2. Casey Jr. Circus Train

In Fantasyland, there's so much different options, but one ride I'd recommend with younger children is the Casey Jr. Circus Train. It's a short ride in the same area as the Storybook Land Canal Boats (which I would also recommend for any adult, but my kids liked the train more). It was fun to be a part of the circus train, ride in the monkey car or caboose, and travel around Fantasyland. You can see some of the miniature models of various Disney films as you ride, too. I have to admit that I was not too thrilled originally to ride the train due to the long line in the middle of the day. So get there early or stay late! And no Genie+ in Fantasyland either... So if the line is shorter, go on this ride. Your kids will enjoy it!
