    I have a 5 month old, 9, 14, 15 year old and we are traveling to Disneyworld in June. I want to know if there are any rides that I will be able to go on . Baby swap is not an option since my husband will be at a conference most of the day.

    Hi Sandra!

    You should still be able to use the Baby Swap with your 15 year old acting as the second "adult"! If not, there are so many attractions your 5 month old can go on.

    Just as a rule of thumb, I'd say your 5 month old can't do the thrill rides (obviously!) but almost everything else he'd be able to do as long as you think he'd be comfortable with the ride's lights/scariness/etc. The problem is the rides with seatbelts, individual seats, etc. (like Star Tours, Soarin'). The rides that have bench seats (Pirates, Great Movie Ride) you'd be able to hold your 5 month old.

    Was that clear as mud?! Some of it will be up to you while you're there. I suggest you head over to and search for "ride restrictions". Also, persuade your 15 year old to do the babyswap with you! :)
