    I got a 20 mth old, 5, and 11, so will the 5 yr not be able to ride since it says he has to ride with someone 14, I want to ride too with baby, don't have the option of passing baby to someone else, don't want to miss riding everything either.

    Hey Cynthia!  Welcome to the Mom's Panel!  I completely understand your concern in wanting to make sure your five-year-old gets to experience many of the attractions on your Disney vacation!  Disney policy does state that children under seven years old must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older. I have four children and although my husband and I have always been with the kids on our Disney trips, our kids often want to ride the attractions together.  We have always been allowed to let the kids ride attractions together that do not have a height requirement. The one exception to this was on the Mad Tea Party at Magic Kingdom. We have a set of twins and they often want to ride with their older brother and sister. I do think that as long as you and your "little one" are waiting in the queue and then ride in the "attraction car" right behind or ahead of your five and eleven-year-old that you should be okay.  Attractions that we have done this on include Peter Pan's Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Haunted Mansion, Toy Story Mania!, and The Seas with Nemo & Friends. All of the amazing shows and many of the attractions like "it's a small world", Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, and The Great Movie Ride to name just a few would accommodate your entire family. If you encounter any problems when touring the parks, then I would suggest explaining to the cast member at the attraction your situation. I do think cast members try their best to accommodate single-parent families. I hope this helps! Please write back if I can answer any other questions for you. Best wishes for a Magical Trip!
    Happy Planning,
