    I'm a single mom with two children ages 8 and 12. If they both want to ride a ride, but I don't want to ride, but want to stand in line with them, is there a way for me to meet them at the exit after the ride is over? Can they stand in line by themselves?

    Hi Stacy!

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel!

    You will be pleased to know that many of the attractions (especially most of the thrill rides) at Walt Disney World Resort have a "chicken exit" which is available to anyone who decides they do not wish to ride, just before boarding the ride.  This will enable you to stand in line with your children and then exit before riding.  Just talk to the cast member who is organising the seating of guests on the attraction.

    I would suggest that you all go around to the exit of the attraction before standing in line, to arrange where you will all meet afterwards.

    Your children can stand in line by themselves, if you are happy for them to do so, but ensure that they both meet the height restrictions for each particular attraction.  There is a very good listing of height restrictions for Walt Disney World attractions on - go to 'Walt Disney World Theme Parks', then 'General Info', and then 'Ride Restrictions'.

    If you have any other questions, please come back and ask me - I would be happy to help you plan your magical vacation!
