    My children are 8yrs & 6yrs. If we use a ride-sharing service to get around Disney properties, are they required to sit in a booster seat? Or can we book a regular Uber or Lyft driver (without child seats) to take us from resorts to parks?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michelle!

    Florida state law currently requires a restraint system (like a car seat or booster seat) for children ages 5 and under. Children between the ages of 5 and 18 may be secured with a standard seatbelt, although the requirements may vary for undersized children. (My daughter, for example, is 10--she’s so small, though, that she still uses a booster seat.)

    If you employ the Disney Minnie Van Service Connected by Lyft in lieu of another rideshare service, each Minnie Van comes with two complimentary car seats. Once you’re on the Walt Disney World Resort property, though, you can use complimentary Resort Transportation to travel between the Theme Parks and Walt Disney World Resort hotels. From buses to boats to the Monorail and even the new Disney Skyliner system, you have lots of options for getting where you need to go!

    I hope this answers your question, Michelle. Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help you plan your magical getaway to Walt Disney World Resort. We hope to see you real soon!
