Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    Any tips for a single mom taking 2 girls ages 3 and 6? We plan to stay on property. What are the different height requirements? Any idea how crowded the parks might be in late August?

    HI Jacquie, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question!

    This handy post over at the Disney Parks Blog gives you clear information about the height requirements for almost all of the attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort’s Theme Parks. If an attraction says that it can be experienced by Guests of “any height”, then you’ll all be able to experience it together, regardless of your daughters’ respective heights during your upcoming vacation. 

    If you need to visit Walt Disney World Resort in the summertime due to your daughters’ school schedules, I’ve typically found that late August is usually best in terms of crowd levels (I will warn you, however, that the weather is often unbelievably humid during that month). If you want more (unofficial) information about how busy Walt Disney World Resort is projected to be during your family’s visit, I’ve found that www.easywdw.com and www.touringplans.com have great crowd information. Although the latter site is a subscription-based site, it’s probably my favourite “un-official” resource, with detailed maps and descriptions of each Walt Disney World Resort Hotel (and even what the view from your room may look like) on top of crowd calendars. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and visit us if you have any other questions, including what Walt Disney World Resort hotel you should choose for your upcoming visit. 

    Have a Magical Day, 

    Lynne
