    Hi! We are coming to disney world again in August, my daughter will be 11 this time. I am a ride wuss and am hoping to try everest, but will only do it if I can sit with my husband, can my 11 year old wait somewhere safe such as by the cast member?

    Hiya, Louise! Welcome back to planDisney!

    I'm thrilled to hear that you're making plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort this August! It sounds like you're ready to enjoy the wild side at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. You'll be able to ride the back of a banshee on Avatar Flight of Passage, spot your favorite animal friends on Kilimanjaro Safaris, and even be on the lookout for the mythical Yeti on Expedition Everest!

    Louise, if you and your husband would like to hop on Expedition Everest together, there are a few options available for your daughter. First, your daughter can walk through the queue and check out all of the artifacts and artwork as you make your way through the line (which is absolutely worth checking out!), even if she decides not to ride. Once you get closer to the ride vehicle, she could take a nearby exit while you and your husband ride. She could stand near the entrance or exit of the ride, positioned perfectly for the moment you and your husband exit. And of course, you can speak to a Cast Member outside of the attraction to find just the right spot for your daughter to wait! They will be happy to give you the best options that are available to you at the time of your visit.

    While you're visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, be sure that you check out some adventurous and delicious dining options. You could place a mobile order through your My Disney Experience app at Satu'li Canteen or Flame Tree Barbecue, which makes ordering so easy you'll have no worries for the rest of your days! End the day with a sweet treat by stopping by Anandapur Ice Cream Truck for a soft-serve ice cream in a waffle cone. 

    I hope I was able to point you in the right direction today, Louise! Please write to us again with any questions you may have.

    Adventure is out there!

Meet the Panelist: Michelle, Pennsylvania

Hello from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, also known as Pittsburgh! My husband and I live in a little town that we affectionately call Main Street, U.S.A. where we often find ourselves seeking out ice cream, finding new adventures, and having lightsaber battles in our backyard. While we love to travel to galaxies far, far away, we consider Walt Disney World Resort our second home and I can't wait to help you add even more magic to your Disney vacations!
