    Hi, this might be an embarrassing question, but I have two little girls and I would love to go on dumbo, flying carpets and the tea cups with them but, I was wondering if there is a weight limit for these and other rides. Thanks for all your help

    Not embarrassing at all. WDW is a very different place than most other theme parks where there are "kiddie" rides that have height or weight maximums. Walt Disney's concept for his theme parks was to design attractions that the whole family could enjoy TOGETHER. There are no rides at WDW that adults cannot go on. In fact, for Dumbo, the Teacups, and many other rides, children are required to be at least seven years old before they are even allowed to go on without an adult. If your girls are small, then you would be required to ride with them.

    Using Dumbo as an example, while the ideal configuration is two people per "elephant," you can really squeeze an adult and two very young kids into the same ride vehicle. We are a family of five, so in our Dumbo riding years, my husband would take our older daughter in the elephant with him, and I would take both our twins in an elephant with me.

    The Flying Carpets of Aladdin is still one of my favorite rides. I'm sure you'll have a great time.
