    What are some good attractions for our family being that my husband and I are outnumbered by kids who cannot ride alone/be left alone (ages 5, 4, and 1) ? We’d like to all ride at once (even if likely in different “vehicles”). Thanks!

    Hi, there!

     Leah, I'm so excited to hear you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few short weeks. You and your family are sure to Fall into Magic!

     When my family was just a party of four, my husband and I had an easy divide-and-conquer method when we were in the theme parks. We would each pair up with one of our little princes to ride an attraction and then switch for the next attraction! Once we added a little princess to the mix, we wondered if our theme park adventures were going to be as manageable... Lucky for us, we've had no trouble experiencing the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort as a party of five! I'm happy to share my best recommendations for attractions that your whole family can ride together.

     At Magic Kingdom Park, you can all be seated together on "it's a small world," Jungle Cruise, and Pirates of the Caribbean. These attractions feature bench seating, so all five of you can easily fit into a row together! The ride vehicles on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, and Tomorrowland Transit Authority can accommodate all five of you together in one ride vehicle. On Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan's Flight, and Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid, you'll need to split up into one group of two and one group of three when you board the attraction. 

     In Epcot, everyone in your family can experience Frozen Ever After, Spaceship Earth, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros, and Journey Into Imagination With Figment while in the same ride vehicle. On The Seas with Nemo & Friends, you'll need to board "clamobiles" as one group of two and one group of three. 

     Disney's Hollywood Studios is currently the theme park with the fewest attractions my family can enjoy together. Be sure to ride Toy Story Mania! in Toy Story Land. You can expect to split into two riding parties for this toy-tastic attraction!

     At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, an absolute must-do for families is Kilimanjaro Safaris. Your entire family can ride together on this attraction, TriceraTop Spin, and Na'vi River Journey. 

     I hope this was helpful, Leah. Please let me know if you have any other questions about traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort with little ones in tow!
