Kids on attraction

    I’m a single mom to 3 kids-10 yr old twins, 4yr old. The twins meet the height requirements for all rides but the 4 yr old doesn’t. Am I and the little one able to wait in line with the big kids for the thrill rides & jump out of line to wait for them?

    Hi, Bethany! I'm so glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    My best friend and running buddy is also a single mom of three Mouseketeers, and they travel to The Most Magical Place on Earth several times a yEAR.  During our long training runs for our runDisney races, we love talking Disney, and she often tells me stories about the logistics and how she manages the kiddos on her own in the Parks. It's not always easy, but she's developed a few tips and tricks to ensure they make magical memories!

    Her tweens (ages 11 and 9) are roller coaster aficionados and are big fans of thrill rides such as Space Mountain, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. I called her this morning, and she said that in her experience, Guests can only go through the attraction queue if they meet the height requirement. This means that you will need to send your twins through the line on their own. Since her littlest guy isn't quite tall enough yet, she says they wait at the attraction exit for the older two kids. She advises only doing this if your twins have a FastPass+ reservation or if the queue has a posted wait time of 20 minutes or less. It also might be a good idea to alert the Cast Members before your kiddos enter the line and to make sure the twins know where you will be waiting for them; in many instances, the attraction exit will be in the merchandise shop. Of course, your mileage may vary, so it's always worth checking with the Cast Members at the ride entrances when you arrive.

    I hope this helps, Bethany! Please write back if there's anything else we can do to make this a magical trip to remember!
