    I'm taking my 3 & 4 yo to DLR by myself. Will we have to skip rides like Midway Mania, Astro Blasters and/or Mr. Toad because my four year old won't have an adult to sit right with her? "Children under age 7 years must be accompanied by a person a

    Hi, Debra!

    You’re going to have a wonderful trip to the Disneyland Resort this fall. With so many recent additions, there are lots of attractions and entertainment you and your children can enjoy together!

    Since your kids are so young, you shouldn’t have a problem riding three-to-a-seat on most attractions with bench-style seating, including Toy Story Midway Mania!, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. In fact, I’ve enjoyed all of those attractions with my husband and son in the same ride vehicle without a problem. Just keep in mind that on certain interactive attractions, like Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, one of you will have to skip playing or two of you will need to share a “shooter.” 

    The best advice I can give you for visiting the theme parks is to have a touring plan in mind before you arrive. Make time for the three of you to sit down in advance to look at the Disneyland Resort website, particularly the attractions list, together. It’s a great way to get a jump on the planning and excitement and will make for smoother days in the parks.

    I also suggest measuring your kids’ height shortly before the trip and then check out the list of height requirements for attractions online so you’ll know exactly what their riding options are. I hope this helps, Debra. Please feel free to ask me any other questions you have as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
