    I'm planning a Spring 2018 trip for my family of 5. We have never been to Disney. My question is, can families of 5 fit on rides together or do they get split up because it's an odd number. Or does it depend on size so we could squeeze 3 and 2?

    Hi Maria!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Mom's Panel with your question. There is no one set answer, however, since the number of people who can ride together varies from Ride to Ride. There are some Rides and Attractions where your entire family of 5 will be able to stay together and some where you may need to split up 3 and 2. As you enter the loading area of most Rides, a Cast Member will ask you your party size. They will do whatever they can to accommodate you. You don't need to worry about  ever being split up 4 and 1, though, so no one person in your group will ever be all alone.

    I hope this information helps you. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to make your planning easier. Have a magical day!
