    I'm a single mom going to Disney the first week of April 2018. My kids are 4 and 11. Are there activities and rides appropriate for all of us? This is our first time.

    Hi, there!

     Kimberly, you are going to have the most magical first visit with your kiddos. Growing up, my single-mom regularly took me and my brothers to the Walt Disney World Resort, and the memories we made together on those trips are among my very happiest. There is an eight year age gap between my oldest and youngest brothers (I'm squeezed between), and I'm happy to tell you there was lots we could enjoy together as a family!

     If you view the list of Walt Disney World Resort attractions, you can filter the search by thrill level, interest, age interest, height, and even accessibility. There are over 100 attractions perfect for all ages! Many attractions feature bench seating, like Kilimanjaro Safaris, that will easily accommodate the three of you together. Others, comfortably seat three to a car, like The Seas with Nemo & Friends. Don't worry about attractions that seat two, like Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin! Your 11-year old is old enough to ride alone in a car, so you can be seated with your 4-year old. When you approach the Cast Member who is in charge of loading, just be sure to tell them there are three in your party, and they'll seat you all appropriately. 

     I love the attractions at Walt Disney World Resort, but even more so, the entertainment! There are many entertainment options the three of you can enjoy together. Among my family's favorites are Festival of the Lion King and Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! If your kids are fans of Star Wars, be sure to register them for Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. This interactive show is for participants ages 4 - 12 years of age, and considered a "can't-miss" by my sons! 

     I hope this was helpful, Kimberly. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
