    Help me please! We are so excited about our first REAL vacation, but I worry about my twin girls, age 12 and my son age 6 not having enough fun due to the age/height restrictions. Are there many attractions for all of us or at least the kids together?


    My children are 8, 6 and 3, and we have absolutely no problem having a great time as a family at WDW.  We also sometimes split up for a little while when there are different opinions about what attractions everyone wants to go on (it also provides a nice break to be in a smaller group for a bit).

    In reality, very few of the attractions have height restrictions, and most are fun for kids of all ages (yes that includes us adults too!).  For example there are only six out of approximately 40 attractions at the Magic Kingdom that have height restrictions, and one of those is 35" (Goofy's Barnstormer) and another attraction is height restricted only if the child wants to ride alone (Indy Speedway).  Click here to download a very useful list of all of the height restrictions across all of the Theme Parks and Water Parks.

    I'm very confident you will have no problem having a great time with your family. Have a great trip!
