Family on Big Thunder Mountain

    My children are 6/ 11 and 16. What do we do with children when only half the family want to go on a certain ride?

    Hi Shaz ~

    One of the most awesome things about visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, is that there is something for everyone to enjoy. There will indeed be times when not everyone in your family will want to do the same attraction. For example, at the Magic Kingdom your older kids may want to ride Space Mountain while your younger one may prefer The Barnstormer.

    When this happens with my boys, we divide and conquer. We also plan a time and place to meet afterwards. If you decide to do this, keep in mind that in order to board an attraction, Walt Disney World resort rules and regulations state that children under the age of 7 years old must be accompanied by someone that is at least 14 years old.

    You can make FastPass+ selections in advance to save time. Not everyone in your family has to have the same FastPass+ selections. You can manage your FastPass+ selections online through your My Disney Experience or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app. When making your selections, it will ask you to indicate the people in your Family & Friends List that you want to include for that FastPass+ selection. You will need to make sure you have linked everyone's theme park admission tickets. I would recommend that you do that in advance so you are set to make FastPass+ selections as soon as your window of opportunity to book opens.

    Please feel free to keep all of your questions coming. We are thrilled to assist you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
