    I'm planning a trip for my 2 daughters 14 and 9 as a single parent. I want to know if there are any accommodations available if my youngest child is unable to ride the same thrill rides as her older sister

    Greetings, Courtnie, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I'm so happy to hEAR you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort with your daughters, how wonderful!

    You'll be pleased to note that since your eldest is fourteen years of age, she'll be able to experience attractions on her own if your youngest doesn't wish to attend (subject to change). Minimum Age attraction and ride information can be found in the above-mentioned link for your planning purposes, Courtnie.

    As well, Disney has a Rider Switch Service for your added convenience which you are welcome to discuss with any friendly and helpful Cast Member at any Guest Relations or Theme Park attraction queue. You may be able to utilize this service after discussing your specific options with a Cast Member who will guide you accordingly keeping the needs of your family in mind.

    Please feel free to explore the tips, advice, and information offered in Disney's Planning for Older Kids, Tweens and Teens which contains suitable Disney Resort hotel accommodations, suitable attractions and experiences, as well as handy Theme Park itineraries. May I also suggest you order or view online Disney Parks Vacation Planning Videos to see what excitement awaits your visit?

    Don't forget, above all, to customize vacation through My Disney Experience online and mobile app for FastPass+ Planning, Advanced Dining Reservations, and personalizing MagicBands.

    Best Disney Wishes!
