    Help! Going to WDW next week and just realized we might have a ride issue. Going with my 8yr old son and husband. Do most rides allow 3 people on at once? Will my husband have to use the single rider line or can we all stand in line and ride together?

    I understand your concern. Let me assure you that the number of attractions for which this will even be an issue is extremely small. Here are some examples, a few at each of the WDW parks, where your family will not face any separation issues:

    - Test Track: The cars hold six people in two, three-person rows.
    - Soarin: Long rows of about 10 people.
    - Jungle Cruise: One large ship for a few dozen people.
    - Kilimanjaro Safari: One row will fit five people.
    - Kali River Rapids: Rafts fit eight people.
    - Great Movie Ride: Rows can fit five people across.
    - Primeval Whirl: Cars hold four people.

    I could go on and on about all the other rides and shows that you can experience together. But there will, as you suggested, be a few rides where you will need to split up.Let's use Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin as an example. This is a continuously loading attraction with vehicles that hold two people each. You will say to the cast member loading the ride that you are party of three. He or she will put two people in one vehicle and one in another. These two vehicles will be right next to each other, loading and unloading within seconds of each other.

    There are only a few rides at WDW that have a single rider line. And if there is one, you are never obligated to use it. The single rider line does sometimes move a bit faster than the regular standby line, but if your party wants to wait together, then you are perfectly welcome to do so.

    Have a wonderful trip to Walt Disney World!
