    On the Genie Plus system? I have a 5 year old and a 13 year old. 5 yr old wants to ride Slinky Dog/Seven Dwarfs, 13 rides Avitar/Space Mtn. Parents have to ride with 5 yr old, using their 2 rides, 13 yr would ride alone? Family friendly?

    Hey there, Rebecca! Welcome to planDisney, and thanks so much for stopping by to see us chat about your next Walt Disney World vacation. I see you’re looking forward to the arrival of Disney Genie later this fall! It sounds like you have a great handle on how the system works and are already aware that those under age seven must enjoy attractions with a person age 14 or older. Guests age seven or above that meet height requirements for an attraction may enjoy it unaccompanied. For example, I would feel comfortable allowing my 13-year-old to enjoy Avatar Flight of Passage and Space Mountain as part of their Individual Attraction Selections. These attractions are certainly family-friendly, and each one actually has single-rider seats, so they will not be seated immediately next to another person. You know your older child best, but allowing them to enjoy a little bit of freedom by experiencing an attraction by themselves might be an incredible experience for them as they gain independence!

    Rebecca, check out the Disney Parks Blog for more coverage of Disney Genie and the exciting announcements to come, including release dates that have yet to be announced. Meanwhile, make sure you have the latest version of your My Disney Experience App on your mobile devices to experience everything right at your fingertips. 

    Wishing you many magical memories,
