    Hi, My children are 7,5 and 3. Our 3 year old is now at height requirement for 7DMT so we will not be able to use rider switch now. Will our 7 year old be able to sit on her own on the ride whilst my husband and I sit with the younger children? Thanks

    Yay Clare!  It was always such an exciting day in our family when our littles grew tall enough to "graduate" to attractions with a height requirement.

    I am happy to let you know that according to the park rules children age 7 and above may board attractions without being accompanied by an adult.  Your family shouldn't have any trouble sitting in the configuration you describe.

    In addition to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, your youngest now also meets the 38" height requirement for Kali River Rapids, Slinky Dog Dash, and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run!

    Clare, I would like you to know that even though your child meets the height requirement for a particular attraction, you can still use Rider Switch.  Sometimes although my children were tall enough to board an attraction, they were frightened and did not care to ride with the rest of the family.

    I hope that helps!  Have a wonderful visit, and please let us know if we can answer any additional questions.
