    Is there an age limit for kids to ride rides by themselves or in groups? I will be going to the parks in October with our 7 kids, aged 10 and younger (husband will be in meetings for part of the time) and I have no idea how this will all work. THANKS!!

    Hey, Jessica!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Disney Parks takes safety very seriously and wants to make sure every prince and princess is secure during all magical moments.

    Official park rules state that "To board and attraction, children under age 7 must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older." Most of the attractions hold 2-5 Guests and yet there are some experiences that everyone can enjoy while your husband is in meetings. When he is with you will have more options for attractions.

    I would structure my day to only enter the theme parks when your husband can join. Without him, I would suggest enjoying your hotel amenities like the swimming pool. Disney Springs is a great place to shop and ride the Marketplace Train($2.00 per ride, parents ride free and price subject to change). DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park would also give your kids an opportunity to go on digital adventures with Aladdin and down a Jungle Cruise. You may even take art lessons at the Animation Academy. Miniature golf is perfect at Mickey's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf and Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf.

    Disney Dad Tip: Here are some other tips when traveling with little ones as well as a guide for Magic Kingdom Park attractions.

    Jessica, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
