    Hi! Is there a policy where there must be one adult with each child on roller coasters? We were recently denied entry to Goofy's Barnstormer because I was the only adult with my two kids, ages 5 and 4. What age does this change? #SingleMomLife

    Hi there, Amanda! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    You sound like a mom who loves to sprinkle pixie dust on her little ones and will do just about anything to make them smile.  Lucky for you, The Most Magical Place on Earth makes it easy to keep them happy, entertained, well-fed and eventually ready for a nap!

    Walt Disney World Resort is our favorite vacation destination because of its family-friendly attractions and exceptional ability to make magic for every member of the family.  For most attractions I'm betting that you and your kiddos got to sit cozied up altogether in one row. However, some two-seater ride vehicles prevent this.  I'm sorry that you were unable to ride The Barnstormer with both of your kids on your last trip, I bet they were really looking forward to it. Walt DIsney World Resort policy states that all Guests under the age of seven must be accompanied by a Guest over the age of 14 to board an attraction.  Even though you were "with" both of your children, I suspect that this policy, combined with the two-seater capacity of the ride vehicle, was the reason you were unable to ride altogether.   

    It looks like it won't be too long before your oldest is able to ride in their own car so that the entire family can hang out with The Great Goofini! In the meantime, check out some other amazing attractions at Magic Kingdom Park, such as The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Mad Tea Party, or Peter Pan's Flight.  On these attractions you'll all be able to ride together!

    I hope this information will help when planning out your next Disney adventure, and that every day spent with your kids is filled with magic!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
