    I have a 12 mos grandbaby can ride some of the rides?

    Hi Lorie ~

    I've been taking my boys to Disney since they were born so I have experience traveling with little ones. You can take your Grandbaby on any of the rides where he/she meets the height requirements (HRs). To see a list of HRs, go to and select a park from the drop down list. From there click on "Attractions". The HRs (if any) are listed along with a description of each attraction. Keep in mind that just because a child meets a HR doesn't meet it is good for them (i.e., Haunted Mansion). I answered a question for another family regarding attractions good for little ones that you may find helpful.

    If there are some rides that you'd like to enjoy that your Grandbaby may not, you can take advantage of the Rider Switch Service.

    Bring something to help keep your Grandbaby entertained in line - favorite small toys, snacks, bubbles, etc. Be sure to give them breaks from their stroller. There are great places in all of the parks to take a break. Try (it will be hard) to stick to nap times. I answered another question regarding some tips on strollers in the parks that you may find helpful. You may want to go back to your resort for a nap or swim break in the afternoon and return later. When you see that your Grandbaby has had enough for the day, head back to your resort. You can take advantage of a little quiet time on your balcony.
