    Can 6 month olds ride on no height requirement rides. Thank you

    Hiya, Emily!

    Welcome to planDisney. I am so very excited that you found us! I have traveled to Walt Disney World with my children since they were as tiny as Piglet. And from tots to teens, every trip has been magical. A big part of that magic is the memories made on Disney attractions. 
    I am happy to report that even the youngest of Disney Guests can experience a trip to Hundred Acre Wood on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh or voyage through Ariel's world in a clamshell while enjoying Under The Sea- Journey of the Little Mermaid. Tiny ones can ride comfortably in your lap, or next to you depending on age and ability. 

    I recommend downloading The My Disney Experience Mobile app before your upcoming adventure. The app gives you the option to filter attractions by location and age. An example would be selecting the "Magic Kingdom Park" and "All Ages" options. The app will then list every attraction without any restrictions such as height. This can be a total time saver. You can also select individual must-do attractions to view any rider requirements ahead of time. This is particularly helpful with younger travelers that may not be quite tall enough for Big Thunder Mountain just yet. I have avoided a disappointment or two with this helpful tip. At six months old, I am sure your traveler isn't seeking mountain thrills just yet! But this is a tip to remember for trips to come or if there are other children traveling with you. 

    Emily, you can also utilize the Rider Switch Service if you are traveling with other adults. Zooming through the dark drops of Space Mountain may not be on a tot's to-do list, but it just might be on yours! This service will allow an adult member of your party to enjoy an attraction while the other hangs back for family fun. When the first rider has finished the experience you can swap, without an extra wait. Once you arrive at the desired attraction, just notify a friendly Cast Member that you wish to use this service. They will issue you a Rider Switch pass and give you attraction-specific instructions. This service is a total time saver!

    One last tip before you get back to planning your magical trip. All four Disney theme parks have Baby Care Centers. These quiet and comfortable spots offer changing areas, private nursing rooms, and space for relaxation breaks. These centers also have everything you may need, and possibly forgot. I know there has been an occasion..or two when we left the diapers back at the hotel. It happens to all of us, even experienced planners. The well-stocked sites have been a lifesaver many times for our family over the years. 

    I hope that this information helps you plan the best trip ever!
    We'll see ya real soon!
