A Ride in the Teacups

    Amy from AZ Asked

    Hi! I am a single mom of two children (ages 6 and 4 at time of travel). Since I will be bringing them by myself, I was wondering which rides can fit the three of us side by side since my daughter is not yet old enough to ride without an adult. Thanks!

    Hiya, Amy! I’m thrilled to hEAR about your family’s upcoming Disneyland Resort vacation! I’ve been taking my three kids to the parks, mostly by myself, for the past seven years, and I’m happy to report that there are many attractions you can ride as a family. Typically, you should be able to sit three in a row on most attractions. Also, a great tool for checking height requirements is the Attractions page, which can be filtered by height. This will help you narrow down the attractions that will work for your family, based on your 4-year-old’s height. 

    Some of my family’s favorite attractions to ride together include “it’s a small world”, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, Casey Jr. Circus Train, Disneyland Railroad, Disneyland Monorail, Toy Story Midway Mania!, Monster’s Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!, Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, and Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters. Also, be sure to check out as many shows, parades and play spaces as you can – my kids love Mickey’s Soundsational Parade, Disney Junior Dance Party!, and running around Mickey's Toontown and Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.

    If you find yourself needing a moment to rest and recharge, I recommend stopping by the Baby Care Centers, available at both parks. I know your children are older, but these Centers are still a great spot to catch your breath.

    Lastly, don’t forget to download the Disneyland app. Use it to check wait times, find favorite Characters, and even order food and drinks -- this is a game changer when dining with a preschooler! 

    Wishing you Disney magic!

Meet the Panelist: Kristin, California

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for about 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 7, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to “The Happiest Place on Earth!”
