    Coming April 29-May 6, 2017. My daughters will be 9 and almost 3. How do we get the most out of such an age difference? Who knows if younger one will be 38-40" by then which is the ht she could do a lot more rides. Assuming she won't be, what can

    Thanks for coming back to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kelly!

    I'm so happy to answer another question for you. Walt Disney World Resort truly has things for everyone in the family to enjoy! Since your daughters may have different interests, I recommend having them make "must-do" lists of attractions, entertainment and Character experiences that they would like to enjoy. That way, you can make sure to hit the things on both of their lists. This list can also be really helpful in making your FastPass+ reservations, as it can serve as a good way to prioritize attractions. You can use this list of attraction height requirements for all four theme parks to help you track what your little one will be tall enough for.

    If your little princess is not going to be tall enough to ride some of the things that other members of your family would like to enjoy, you can use the Rider Switch program so that everyone can have a good time. My family uses this with our little Mouseketeer all the time since my older son loves roller coasters! We love this program because while one parent rides with our oldest son, the other parent can spend time with our younger son enjoying attractions that he likes and he doesn't feel left out. Then, my husband and I switch and my oldest son gets to ride his attraction a second time while our little one gets to pick something else he would like to do. It really works out perfectly!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
