    Hi Stephanie,

    I think you can still go on your vacation. You and your husband can each take two children on the rides. While an extra hand would be helpful, the Walt Disney World Resort was designed with families in mind.

    Most rides require a person to sit on the seat. You can absolutely put your arm around your child as they sit next to you. You can ask the cast member at the entrance to the queue if your little one will be able to sit on your lap or not.

    There will be rides such as Small World which you can all sit together in the same row. Other rides should fit at least three of you into the seat such as Dumbo or the Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

    Once you add a "thrill" element to a ride, the seating gets more restrictive. Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain have height requirements which limit how guest sit for their own safety.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
