    Im a single mom with 4 boys and we're headed to WDW in Nov. 2021. The youngest is 1 and oldest is 9. How can I ensure my older boys can ride what they want if I can't go with them because of the baby? They want to ride the thrill rides. Thanks!

    Hiya, Danielle! Welcome to planDisney, and thanks so much for stopping by. What an amazing mother you are to be planning a trip to Walt Disney World with your four boys! They must be so excited. Luckily, there is an option that may work for you. Children 7 and over can enjoy most attractions without being accompanied by an adult. Therefore, your 9-year-old will definitely be able to enjoy some thrill rides, and maybe one of his younger brothers as well, if he is old enough! Otherwise, there are so many attractions that can be enjoyed as a family! Another option that I suggest is perhaps considering bringing along a babysitter or relative that may enjoy taking the boys on the thrill rides or waiting with the younger ones while you do! It could be extra fun for everyone involved! 

    Danielle, I hope that this advice helps you enjoy your trip with your boys to the fullest! While you are in the Theme Parks, remember that there are Baby Care Centers in each one meant to be a haven for busy moms like yourself! You can stop by anytime you need, and they have all the necessities for a great day with little ones in the Parks.
