Mom And Daughter Resort Room

    We will be visiting WDW in June with our 3 children ages 4, 2, and 10 months. My question is about our 10 month old. Will he be allowed on rides with us? I am mainly thinking of something like Pirates of the Carribean, Jungle Cruise, Haunted House, etc.

    Fear not!  your 10-month-old will be able to ride with you on everything you mentioned, plus many many others.  In fact, it would be easier to list the few things that he could NOT do, as almost everything will be open to him.  Disney really does cater to families of ALL ages.

    Because your other two children are young as well, they will be limited on some of the 'bigger' rides as well.  They might be able to ride Goofy's Barnstormer (must be 35 inches tall), Kali River Rapids (38 inches), Splash Mountain (40 inches), Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (40 inches), and a few others that require a 40-inch minimum height. 

    I have three daughters who are very close in age to your children and we can experience 95% of everything together as a family.  For the few rides that we can't, my husband and I take turns taking the older girls on  a ride while the other relaxes with the baby.  Also don't forget to request a switch ticket at the ride entrance, that way the parent who waits with the baby can also take a turn riding without having to wait.

    One last note - while we take our girls on everything and have never had a problem, many parents do report their children being frightened on the Haunted Mansion.  You know your children best, so only you can decide if it's right for them.  If you have any doubts I suggest looking for a video clip of the ride on YouTube, and/or having one parent ride alone first to decide what you should do.  Again, my girls have never been frightened at all so it's really hard to predict.

    Have a great trip!
