Family on Big Thunder Mountain

    I'll be traveling by myself with my 2 kids (ages 6 and 4) later this year. They are tall enough(40in) to go on some of the more exciting attractions. How can we ride them since I'm the only adult on the group?

    Hi, Pebbles!

    How exciting to hEAR you'll be spending some time at the Most Magical Place On Earth later this year with your Mouseketeers! You'll be able to experience three of my family's favorite attractions when you visit the Magic Kingdom-Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. If your vacation includes Epcot, you won't want to miss out on designing your own vehicle on Test Track and fly over some of the world's most famous landmarks on Soarin'. I remember by own son being disappointed when he wasn't tall enough for Kali River Rapids, so add that one to the list if you plan to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom because the requirement is only 38 in!

    I've traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort a few times with just my kiddos, so on the attractions that offer just two seats, I usually let them ride together, and I ride either behind or in front of them. Some attractions will allow you all to sit together like Soarin', Test Track and even Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (typically two small children and one adult can fit on the bench seating). Kali River Rapids offers a large raft so plenty of room to be together. Just let the cast member know how many are in your party when asked, and they will direct you accordingly! 

    Pebbles, we are so glad you stopped by and hope you'll visit again real soon!
