    Hi! I’m traveling this December. Just one adult with my two boys 7 and 5 years old. We can sit all together in the rides? I saw in videos staff sit just to people together. I’m worried about my one of kid will be sit with a stranger.

    Hi, there!

     Glenda, I'm so happy to hear you'll be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort this holiday season. It truly is the most magical time of the year!

     Your heart is going to just melt as you watch your sons be immersed in the magic of Disney storytelling in the theme parks. I completely understand your concern, though! I'm pleased to tell you that on most attractions, you can sit with both your boys. Attractions with wide bench seating like Kilimanjaro Safaris and Pirates of the Caribbean can perfectly accommodate your family as a party of three sitting together. Other attractions, like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain, have shorter bench seating, but can still seat three comfortably. You'll also have no difficulty sitting together on attractions with ride vehicles like Alien Swirling Saucers, Space Mountain, and The Seas with Nemo & Friends

     Unfortunately, attractions with bucket seats like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Slinky Dog Dash can not sit three across. Not to fret! In those instances, you'll be seated with your 5-year old and your 7-year old will be seated in the row directly in front of you. There was one time that I was riding Slinky Dog Dash with my two sons and the seat next to my oldest son was filled by another Guest. That hadn't happened before on any other thrill attraction we had experienced together, but it didn't bother my little guy so it wasn't a problem. If you think your oldest kiddo would be bothered sitting next to a stranger, I suggest voicing your concern to the Cast Member who will be seating you. They'll be happy to make sure your family is comfortable while riding!

     Since you'll be traveling without the help of another adult, I very much recommend purchasing Memory Maker. As a mom of three, I'm often behind the camera. With Memory Maker, I don't have to be behind the camera because a Disney PhotoPass Photographer is instead! This means that our entire family is included in our vacation pictures!

     I hope this was helpful, Glenda. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
