    I'm going 2 be by myself with 3 little kids. Ages 5, 3, and 1. My 5 yr old is 46in tall and loves rides. Is there any way she could go on the bigger rides while I stay with the younger ones? Do they have some kind of ride escort system?

    Hi Kristy,

    Unfortunately there is no Disney-provided ride escort system, and children really aren't supposed to go on rides at WDW alone until they're at least seven years old, even if they're tall enough.

    The only real solution I could think of for you would be to enlist the help of a child care provider. Disney contracts with an agency called Kids Nite Out ( They could provide a sitter to accompany you into the parks or to watch your younger children elsewhere while you take your older child to the parks on your own. You should contact them directly for rates and availability.

    Good luck!
