Mom With Kids After Run

    I am a single mother traveling with my three children - ages 13, 10 and 4. Since I do not have another adult with me, can I stand in line with my older children and then step out of line with my younger when we get to the ride?

    Yes you can. I've done this myself several times when my 11-year-old wanted to ride something that my younger daughters did not. When you get to the end of the ride queue, just tell the cast member in charge what you would like to do. They will be able to direct you to the best place to wait for your children. This system does work very well, but I would also suggest that if your tween or teens are going to be without you in the park for any time at all (even just while on a ride) that you equip them with a cell phone. Even with the best instructions, kids (and adults) can get turned around in the parks and lose their bearings. Or your 4-year-old could have a bathroom emergency while your older kids are on the ride and you might need to step away for a moment. A cell phone will just make communication that much easier.
