    Hi, Me and my family are going to Disney World to the Magic Kingdom in March. We will have two 4 year old's a 8 month old and an infant. What rides can the 4 year old's ride? Can the 8 month old and the infant ride anything with a parent? Thanks

    Hi there Erica!

    Walt Disney World is a very infant and toddler friendly vacation destination and as a parent, you will be amazed at how well planned out the theme parks are for accommodating the under 5 crowd! Keep in mind that children under 3 years of age are granted free entry into all four Disney Theme Parks and the two Disney Water Parks! There are also wonderful Baby Care Centers available at no additional charge throughout the Walt Disney World Resort to help you with any infant changing or feeding needs.

    Check out this link to the "Traveling with Little Ones" in-depth park guides, character meet-n-greet details and kids programs. There is also a listing of the Disney theme park attractions that do not have a height requirement and can be experienced by an infant.

    For your four year old, check out this unofficial resource In the search engine at the top of the page, type in the word "height" and you will find the link to a Height Requirement Calculator. Simply type in your preschooler's current height in inches and then submit to receive a listing of theme park attractions accessible to your child.

    Lastly, you may wish to consider utilizing the Rider Swap option available at select attractions. Rider Swap is when Guests take turns waiting with youngsters too small to ride a certain attraction, then "swap" with another adult Guest from their party to experience the ride without standing in line twice. Just chat with a Cast Member at the attraction for additional information and assistance.
