    I am planning trip to WDW with me, a 5 yr old, and an 8 yr old. My 5 yr old is tall enough to ride most rides, but likes to sit only next to me as he gets scared. My 8 year old hates sitting by herself. What rides accommodate 3 riders together?

    Dear Katie,

    Thanks for contacting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your terrific question about accommodating three riders on attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    The good news is that there are many rides that can accommodate three riders in a row.

    Some of the standouts that I can think of off the top of my head include Test Track, Soarin', The Three Caballeros, and Frozen Ever After at Epcot; DINOSAUR!, Kali River Rapids, and Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom; The Great Movie Ride, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and Star Tours at Disney's Hollywood Studios; and it's a small world, Jungle Cruise, or Pirates of the Caribbean at the Magic Kingdom, among MANY others!

    Of course, all of the shows, films, and other experiences of that type would find you sitting together in the theater as well! Animal Encounters across Disney's Animal Kingdom include the whole family as well! Walt Disney's dream was to build a resort where families can play together and enjoy these experiences without anyone feeling left out, and I believe that Walt Disney World Resort has stayed true to those ideals, with the vast majority of experiences being open to families in smaller and larger groups. You're sure to have a magical trip, and no one will feel scared or left out!

    Moms Panel tip - check out the My Disney Experience app to check for height restrictions and open/close times for the parks and attractions that you want to do!
