    My daughter is 5 and over 48 inches tall. She loves roller coasters. Can she ride in the same seat as me on Space Mountain or I sit behind her to hold her? URGR8T!!

    Hi April,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel.  I have daredevil kids as well, and when I took my 6-year old daughter on Space Mountain during our last visit, I think I was more scared than she was! 

    The seating configuration of this ride vehicle does not permit you to sit with her, but you can sit behind her.  I know that I am not the first mother to get bumped around from leaning so far forward so that I could put my hand on my child's shoulder in front of me.  Us moms will do anything to make us,  I mean them feel better.

    Have a great time!
