« back to Rides & Attractions
Hey! I'm bringing my 5 yo niece and my 7 yo son in early June for 5 days. Will we be able to do all the rides such as barnstormer, dumbo etc with all 3 of us riding together since there will not be a second adult? Thanks for your help this panel is amazing

Whenever I traveled to Walt Disney World with two little ones either solo or if their Dad is somewhere else in the park, we've always been able to figure out an acceptable way for us all to ride together.
Usually, the size of the kids and adult are key here; sometimes both little ones can fit into the seat with the one adult. If not, we simply have the two little ones sit together with me riding directly behind them. On some attractions which seat only two at one time, there are sometimes cars which have several rows of two together. I'd choose two rows which are connected to each other so that you can put your hand on the shoulder of either little one who may need reassurance (or, to make you
more comfortable, too. :-) ) When my guys were old enough to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Expedition Everest, for example, I could easily arrange to sit directly behind the two of them. In other situations, such as Peter Pan's Flight or The Haunted Mansion, the three of us fit perfectly in one car.
If ever in doubt, talk to the Cast Member at the front of the line at each attraction, he or she will tell you what to ask for when you get to the point of entering the car. CMs are there to help you, Robin, so be sure to let them know what you need and help ensure you get it.
Have a fantastic visit to Walt Disney World, Robin! What a treat for the three of you!
