    I will be at the Magic Kingdom with my two children. One child is too short for some rides; can my 7-year old ride an attraction such as Splash Mountain on her own?

    Hi, Albert! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms panel!

    To board an attraction, children under age 7 must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older. Being 7 your daughter may ride attractions on her own, provided she meets the height requirement, if you both feel comfortable in doing so. You may wait for her near the ride exit.

    If you are traveling with another adult, you may take advantage of the Rider Switch option. This allows each adult to experience the attraction with the child able to ride while the other stays with the younger child. The second party riding will have a minimal wait time. We used the Rider Switch service many times when my boys were younger. It was easy and so very convenient!

    Have a magical vacation, Albert!
