    I’m going to Disney World w/my 11 year old & my 5 and 7 year old nephews soon. Will we be able to ride all the rides 2 & 2 or will we have to split into 3 & 1 and leave my 11 year old to ride everything alone?

    Hiya there, Amanda! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy! Your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just days away! I'm sure the anticipation is growing with each passing day. Before you know it, you'll be waking up to Mickey-shaped waffles and feeling the wind in your hair on all of your favorite attractions. Since I see that you're traveling with three Mouseketeers, I did want to share some helpful information regarding transportation. Though I'm sure you're aware of Disney Bus, Water and Monorail Transportation, there is a lesser-known way to navigate the Walt Disney World Resort. The Minnie Van™ Service has recently returned. These polka-dot-covered vehicles resemble our favorite Mrs. Mouse and operate as a rideshare service through Lyft throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. For your convenience, car seats are provided for smaller kids who need them. Though there is a fee to use this service, it can help out in a pinch or for a comfortable ride!

    Amanda, ride vehicles vary for each attraction. There will be many rides where your entire group can sit together, whether in one row or one vehicle. Rides like Kilimanjaro Safaris, Living With the Land, Soarin' Around the World, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™, Frozen Ever After, Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, Na'vi River Journey and "it's a small world" have longer rows where larger parties can stick together side by side. Other rides, including Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, Test Track and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh utilize ride vehicles with multiple rows, where two of you can sit comfortably in each row while the other two ride right behind you in the same vehicle. While this is not an exhaustive list, it does demonstrate that there are quite a few rides where you can rest assured knowing your group can stick together.

    Amanda, there are some attractions where you will likely be required to split up. Space Mountain, for example, uses a 3-person vehicle, where Guests are arranged in a single file one behind another. Other rides have more creative seating arrangements, like Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid, where Guests ride in a clamshell to experience the attraction. On rides like these, there may be some flexibility. My family of four tends to ride together, with our little ones sandwiched between the two adults. The ability to do this, of course, depends on the size of the riders and can be determined by the Cast Member when boarding at the attraction. 

    I hope this helps ease your mind a little bit, Amanda! Overall, you will have plenty of options to keep the crew in one piece and experience the magic together! You may consider hopping on YouTube and searching for videos of each attraction. This can show you what to expect as far as ride vehicles are concerned and help you make an itinerary that best suits your family's needs!

    Have a magical day,
