    I am bringing my 1 year old and 6 year old to DW. Can the 1 year old go on any of the rides? And what do they mean by parents of small children can take turns.

    Hi Katie,

    I think you'll find that your 1 year old will be able to experience almost all of the attractions with you.  For safety reasons, there are some attractions that have a minimum height requirement.  Click HERE to see a complete list.

    On attractions with height requirements, it is possible to do a rider switch.  At the line for the attraction, tell the cast member that you need a rider switch pass.  Your husband and older child can ride the attraction, while you wait with your one year old.  When they are through, you can ride the attraction with your daughter without having to wait in the long line.  My older children really love this program, because they get to ride twice and only have to stand in line once!

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
