What attractions are great for young children?

Children love Disney World and parents know their little ones will be having the time of their life.  But what attractions will be best for your children?  Which attractions will scare them?  Which attractions will be big hits that they will want to do over and over?  Below is a list of attractions that are sure to be big hits with your children.  All comments are from my own experiences.

Great
  • Muppet Vision 3-D
  • Little Mermaid
  • Disney Animation (if they likes to draw)
  • Playhouse Disney
