    We will be arriving thanksgiving week to Disney with 2 little ones who will be in strollers, what is the age requirement for rides? Also is there a special line for strollers? Can they be taken all the way up until you get on the ride? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Marichal ~

    I've been bringing my boys to the Walt Disney World Resort since they were born. I'm here to assure you there are a lot of rides that little ones can enjoy! There is no age requirements for attractions. Guests can ride any of the attractions as long as they meet the height requirements. There are many attractions that do not have a height requirement. One of the easiest ways I've found a list is by visiting the Disney World Attractions page on the Walt Disney World Resort website. You can filter by thrill level, interests, age interests, and height. By selecting "Any Height", it will show you the attractions that any Guest can enjoy, including toddlers.

    Strollers are not allowed in queues unless they are being used as a wheelchair. Your little ones can remain in their strollers up to a certain point at Kilimanjaro Safaris and then you'll have to park their stroller in the designated parking area before heading down to the loading platform. For all other attractions, you will need to park your stroller in a designated parking area near the attraction before entering the queue.

    Typically, the stroller parking areas are crowded and it can be hard to spot your stroller in the sea of strollers. Put your name and a bright ribbon on the handle of your stroller so that you can find it easily. We used to get some fun Duck Tape to put on the handle of our stroller. They even make Disney themed Duck Tape now.

    Thanksgiving can be a busy time so here are some quick tips:
    * Make Advanced Dining Reservations.
    * Get an early start each morning and take a break in the afternoon.
    * Select your 3 "must dos" in each theme park you plan to visit and make those your priority.
    * Bring your own water and snacks to avoid waiting in line for them.
    * Plan to eat an early lunch and dinner to avoid the crowds.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
