    I have 3 kids ages 8, 6, and 4. I know children under 7 must be accompanied by an adult on rides. Can my 8 and 6 year old ride together in a row with me and my 4 year old in the row behind? Thank you!

    Hi Jessica!

    Welcome to planDisney

    Many of the Walt Disney World attractions have a capacity of two per row. In that case, as long as your children meet the height requirements for the attraction, you can have your eight and six-year-olds sit in a row together. 

    Disney uses the following height requirements—48 inches, 44 in, 42 in, 40 in, 38 in, 35 in, 32 in. One exception is the Tomorrowland Speedway, as you will need to be 54-inches tall to drive without supervision or to supervise a younger driver.

    You can visit the attractions page to filter by height. This is a great resource to find the attractions that all of your kiddos can ride. For those attractions in which your kids do not meet the height requirements, you can leverage the rider switch service (as long as it is an attraction offering rider switch). You can visit the Rider Switch page for more information about how the program works and which attractions are included.

    I would also love to make recommendations for attractions that all of you can enjoy together. When you visit Disney's Magic Kingdom, "it's a small world" has room for all four of you per row. Pirates of the Caribbean is another attraction that allows all of you to sit on the same row.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
