    We are coming in Aug :-) with our 7, 4, and 1 year old daughters. Will there be any rides we can take the 1 year old on with the other two girls, or will we need to swap out in line so we can ride with our daughters? Our 1 year old weighs 20 lbs.. thanks

    Hi Dee,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel! You're smart to plan ahead for your trip to Disney Word.

    Your 1 year old can ride any of the attractions where she meets the height requirements (HRs) for attractions. You can find a list of the attractions with HRs by visiting the Traveling with Little Ones section on the Disney World Website. There you will find a PDF file on the right side of that page that lists attractions at all of the theme parks that have HRs.

    Some attractions don't have HRs. You know your daughter betters than anyone, but keep in mind that just because an attraction doesn't have a HR, doesn't mean that every child should ride it. Haunted Mansion is a great example of this - there is no HR but its dark & once you're on, there is no great way to get off of this 7 minute & 30 second ride. 


    Bring something to help keep her entertained in line - favorite small toys, snacks, bubbles, etc. Be sure to give her breaks from her stroller. Try (it will be hard) to stick to nap times. Take advantage of the Baby Care Centers located in each theme park. Click here for some tips on strollers.

    Since it will be hot in August, click here for some tips to beat the heat. 

    Let me know if you have any questions about any specific attractions - I'm super happy to assist you. Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
