Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    We will be visiting WDW with a party of 6. 2 adults and 4 kids (7, 4, 4 & 4). Can my older son ride some rides alone and my husband and I split the triplets? Or even on some rides like dumbo can my older son ride with one of the little kids?

    Hi Jill!

    You'll find that there are various ways to help you manage Walt Disney World's attraction with kids outnumbering the adults in your party.

    Many of the attractions in Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland can accommodate more than 2 guests per seat or even your whole party in the same vehicle in separate rows.

    In any instance where this is not able to occur, simply wait through the attraction line as a family, and upon reaching the front of the line you'll be able to ask the Cast Member for a 'Rider Switch Pass' - or if it's not an attraction featuring Disney's Fast Pass, let the Cast Member know about your situation and they will advise you on the best option available to do a 'Rider Swap' to ensure that everyone in your family is able to have a safe turn at enjoying the attraction.

    In a Fast Pass enabled attraction where your eldest son is tall enough & willing to ride but your triplets are not; once you wait through the line together and receive a Rider Switch Pass, your husband & son can enjoy the attraction together while you wait with the young ones. When they come out - yourself & your eldest can go right back into the attraction via the Fast Pass Return entrance and your son will get to experience it all over again with you!

    I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is filled with Magical memories!
