    Hi, we are a family of 2 adults and an 8, 6 and 3 year old. On the rides where we all meet the height requirements and the seating is 2x2 are my 6 and 8 year old able to sit together if 1 adult is sat behind them? (the second adult is sat with 3 year old)

    Hi Jayne, welcome to planDisney!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation countdown is racing toward the finish line - I'm so excited for you! My tween daughter reached an exciting Magic Kingdom Park height milestone on our last trip; she was tall enough to drive her own car at Tomorrowland Speedway. I followed behind at a safe distance, silently celebrating the fact that her driver's license is only valid in Tomorrowland.

    According to Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules, children under age 7 must be accompanied by a person 14 years or older to board an attraction. In my experience, the child must be in the same ride vehicle as the person accompanying them. For example, your 6 and 8-year-old should be able to sit next to each other on The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh because the accompanying parent can be seated in the same honey pot vehicle. They should not, however, expect to ride The Barnstormer together because every two seats are separated by a coupling.

    My best tip is to ask a Cast Member at the entrance to each attraction's queue about seating requirements/recommendations. In some cases, like Peter Pan's Flight and The Seas with Nemo and Friends, one adult and two children can fit in one attraction vehicle.  

    A few services to help your family maximize the magic during your visit are Disney Genie+ service, Rider Switch, and Baby Care Centers, which are not just for infants. Please reach out to me directly for more information about any of these topics.

    Thanks for making planDisney a part of your dream team, Jayne. Best wishes for safe travels "across the pond" next month.
