    we r a family of 5 and want to know how we can ride the rides can 1ad and 2 kids sit togethere if they r slim we r trying to find the best way to do this so no one has sit by them self...thanks again for all the help.:)

    Hi Mindi,

    Most of the attractions at Walt Disney World are designed so that large groups can enjoy them together.  There are a few ride vehicles that are intended for 2 people, but a 3rd smaller person, could fit.  We have a family of 5, and on our vacation in December there were only a couple of instances where we chose to let a person in our party ride solo.  These are the attractions I can think of where no more than 2 people should be in a car:

    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin - each rider has a controller that is used to shoot targets.  Although a small child can fit between to other guests, it's much more fun if each rider has their own controller.

    Tomorrowland Indy Speedway - the cars are designed for 1 driver or 1 driver with a child passenger.

    Toy Story Midway Mania - this is similar in design to Buzz Lightyear.  Everyone will want to have their own controller.

    Rockin' Roller Coaster - Only 2 people can fit in each row.

    Expedition Everest - again, I think only 2 people can fit in each row.

    Space Ship Earth - You'll only want to put 2 people in each row, if possible.  However each car has 2 rows, so you could split up your group - 2 in one car and 3 in another.

    Those are really the only attraction that I can think of where someone will have to (or want to) ride alone.  The cast members also do a great job of keeping groups together.  You just tell them how many you have in your party, and they take it from there.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
