    I'm travelling to MK with my two kids, 5 and 4. The older loves all the rides but younger is afraid of many of them. Is there maybe a 'buddy' system of some sort available? So he could have someone ride with him or to keep company to her while I go?

    Hi Hannele,

    This is a common issue with many families, either one child doesn't meet the height requirement, or the child is intimidated by an attraction.  Unfortunately Disney does not offer a  "buddy" system to assist in these situations.

    I would suggest that you consider a service such as www.kidsniteout.com.  This company not only offers in-room babysitting, they offer "Parent Helpers" to accompany you to the parks for this exact reason.  Although I haven't utilized the Parent Helper service, I did use them for in-room babysitting and had a fantastic experience.

    Hope this helps!
