    Is it possible to take my twin six year old niece and nephew on rides alone or do you need one adult per child on rides?

    Hi Rebecca!

    I love that you want to spend time with your niece and nephew at Disney World! 

    I have often visited Disney with my boys by myself and we've had a wonderful time.  While children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a Guest 14 years old or older to enter the theme parks, water parks and DisneyQuest, you are not required to have one adult per child on the attractions. Depending on your sizes, you can ride on most of the rides together. There may be a few attractions where it may be tight for all three of you or that it only seats two Guests that you'd need to split up.  On those attractions your niece or nephew can ride alone as long as they are comfortable sitting by themselves. The other option is putting the two of them together in a seat and you can sit behind the two of them. They will need to meet the minimum height requirements to ride attractions that have height requirements.

    One attraction that comes to mind that you may want to look out for is the Tomorrowland Speedway at the Magic Kingdom. Guests only have to be at least 32 inches tall to drive as long as they are accompanied by someone who is at least 54 inches tall.  However, Guests must be at least 54 inches tall to drive a car on their own. Depending on your sizes, it may be tight for all three of you to ride in one car. Keep that in mind and plan ahead to avoid any disappointment.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
