    My husband & I have a blended family & we will be taking our 6 kids to Disney. At the time we go, they will be 10, 9, 8, 6, 5 and 2. Is there enough rides the older kids would be able to ride on their own or do you suggest bringing another adult?

    Hi Jessica,
    Thanks for joining us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    Fellow blended family mama here with four beautiful kiddos! Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with all of our children is one of my very favorite things to do in this world.

    The rules regarding children riding attractions at the theme parks are as follows: to board an attraction, children under age 7 must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older.  Your three oldest will be able to ride together without you and your husband.  Your three youngest children will need you to be with them at all times on attractions.

    Jessica, for thrill rides and those with specific height limits, I recommend using the Rider Switch Service.  You can still have a chance to ride your favorite attractions by splitting up into two parties, giving both you and your husband the opportunity to experience all the fun our friend Mickey has to offer.  However, please know that there are many things kids of all ages can participate in throughout the four theme parks.

    Have a magical visit and please stop by again to see us with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
