    My husband and I are bringing kids (5, 7 & 9) for their first trip to WDW in April. Will we be able to ride as a family for rides that seat 2 across like 7 Dwarfs etc.? Can just one adult ride with all 3 kids on those types of rides? Thanks!

    Hi, Jennifer.  With three girls of my own, this has always been an issue in our family.  Some attractions work out way better than others.

    Attractions such as the Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Pirates of the Caribbean, and some others have bench style seating, and especially with smaller children, you can easily fit three people across - an adult and two little ones.  Some things, you may fit even more.

    Other things, like the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, have molded seats, and only two people will fit into those cars.  They also have an individual lap bar that each person pulls down to their comfort level, so for safety reasons, the car will only accommodate two guests.  

    You should all be able to ride together - meaning at the same time - for most things.  For other things, in our family, we would usually put the two oldest in one car, and one adult and the youngest in another, with the second adult riding alone.  We've been pretty successful with that method!

    I hope you have an awesome time on your upcoming vacation!
