    I just bought annual passes for myself and my two children. What is the rule for the three of us when it comes to seating on rides such as Seven Dwarfs and Slinky Dog? My children are 3 and 4, well above 38 inches and big thrill seekers.

    Hi Jessie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question.  Congratulations on joining the Annual Passholder family! I love that you and your little ones will have so much freedom to explore the parks with your Annual Passholder access.

    The Walt Disney World Park Rules state that “to board an attraction, children under age 7 must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older.” This means that on attractions where there are two seats side-by-side, any Guest under 7 must have a Guest 14 or older in the seat beside them. Access to attractions and seating configurations vary based on the safety rules for each attraction, so check in with the Cast Member at the entrance to each attraction to find out what options you might have.

    Slinky Dog Dash and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train both have two-seater configurations, which means that if you are the only adult in your party, you will not be able to ride this attraction with your two littles. Attractions like The Haunted Mansion and Under The Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid feature ride vehicles that will accommodate the three of you, as will many of the boat-based attractions like “it’s a small world” and Pirates of the Caribbean.

    There are so many options you can enjoy with your little ones, Jessie - my advice is to check the attraction height requirements against images of the ride vehicles, which can be found online. You can also stop in at Guest Relations inside the theme parks for suggestions on which attractions will work for your family.

    Jessie, have the best time visiting Walt Disney World with your little thrill seekers! I know you are going to make so many magical memories together.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
