    We are so excited for our upcoming Disney World trip! I am a single mom arriving with two boys, 5 1/2 and 3 1/2. Will we have many issues of having to seat two together and one separate on rides? They love rides, but not sure how to manage this Thanks

    Hi Carol!

         I am a single parent like you are and I have found out that Walt Disney World is a great place to take your children as a single parent. As far as riding rides with your two children, most of the rides in Walt Disney World have bench style seating and can accommodate and adult and two small children. For example, you can easily fit an adult and two small children on Dumbo or the Doom Buggies in the Haunted Mansion. For the rides that have individual seating you could have your two children sit in front of you and then you sit directly behind them in the same ride vehicle. You can always let the Cast Member who is running the ride know that you are a Single Parent and that you want to be seated as close to your children as possible on the ride. Cast Members are very accommodating to these kind of requests.  There are a lot of rides, attractions, and shows that the whole family can enjoy together in each of the parks of Walt Disney World. Also you may want to consider vacationing with another single parent and their family at Walt Disney World or you can think about taking a family relative with you on your vacation to help out with the kids.

    I hope that you have a magical trip with your two boys in Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
