    Hi everyone I am taking my 2 yr old down for the first time. Im a little worried about it but excited. Will my husband and I both be able to ride some of rides with him? Or will we have to sit in different cars or areas?

    Don't be worried. I think every parent on this panel has taken a toddler to WDW. We all had such great experiences on these trips that we became life-long fans. In fact, two-year-old is a perfect time for a visit. Your son will be able to interact with the characters and enjoy some of the rides, but you also have the BIG BONUS that children under age three are FREE.

    As for ride seating, it really depends on the ride and how big you and your hubby are. Many of the rides your son will be able to experience do have seating which will allow your whole family to ride together. For example, my average sized hubby and I can fit with a preschooler in one car on Winnie the Pooh, Aladdin, Peter Pan, Buzz Lightyear, Teacups, Snow White, etc. Other attractions have seating for larger groups. These include the Jungle Cruise and Small World. You will also be able to sit together for any show, parade or fireworks display. A few rides, however, do have a more snug fit. For Dumbo and the Indy Speedway, you're going to have to be in separate vehicles or have one parent stay behind. I actually like to be on the ground during Dumbo because I can get great photos of my family enjoying the ride.

    Hope you have a great trip!
