    Hi Amanda, I just read an answer from you re: 3 person seating on rides. I'll be there in 2 wks with DH and DD5. I asked before about 3 people per seat for Peter Pan's Flight, Dumbo, etc. and was told prob. only 2. Can you give me your thoughts? thanks!

    Hi again Lisa,

    This really depends on the size of your child.  If your child is small, you should all be able to fit just fine.  I know that my husband (who's 5'10 / 185), myself, and our almost 6 year old daughter have no problem riding our favorite attractions together!  We all squeeze into one train car on Big Thunder Mountain, one boat on Peter Pan's Flight, and one Dumbo on Dumbo(even though Dumbo's a little tight and we usually opt for 2).  We also always pile into one car for Mr. Toad's WIld Ride, one Doom Buggy on Haunted Mansion, and we can fit in one vehicle on Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters, but my husband considers himself a "skilled Zurg shooting professional" and prefers his own car.  

    Tip:  The Astro Orbiter advertises being able to accommodate 3 guests... I don't recommend trying.  Imagine 3 people completely stuck and unable to get out of the rocket... Well that was us.

    I think it just really boils down to size and comfort preference, but most attractions will comfortable accommodate 2 adults and one child.

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
