    I'm a single mom looking to plan a trip with my 3 & 5 year old children. How many rides would we be able to ride together? Are there many restricted to 2 people, regardless of size?

    Hello Andrea!
    I am a single parent like you are and I have found out that Walt Disney World is a great place to take your children as a single parent. As far as riding rides with your two children, a majority of the rides in Walt Disney World have bench style seating and can accommodate and adult and two children. For example, you can easily fit an adult and two small children on Peter Pan's Flight or the Doom Buggies in the Haunted Mansion. For the rides that have individual seating in rows of two, like on roller coasters such as the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, you could have your two children sit in front of you and then you sit directly behind them in the same ride vehicle or in the vehicle behind them. You can always let the Cast Member, who is running the ride or attraction, know that you are a single parent and that you want to be seated as close to your children as possible on the ride. Cast Members are very accommodating to these kind of requests. There are also a lot of family restrooms in the Parks where you all can go in together to avoid being separated when using the facilities. Please let me know if you have any more single parent questions! I hope that you have a magical vacation with your two children at Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
