    We are ready to start booking Fast Passes. Our children are tall. My 2-year old is 38 inches, and my 3-year old is 43 inches tall. Based on height, both of them can ride the seven dwarves mine, I am worried it might be too much for the the youngest?

    Hi Nicole,

    Ooh...I hope you're having SO much fun planning the final details of your trip!

    Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is an AWESOME ride that my entire family loves, but I agree with you that it might be tough to know whether or not your littlest Mouseketeer would love it at only two years of age. My daughter rode The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror when she was only four years old, but I'm...well, let's just say quite a bit older than that, and I've never even tried it because it's way too thrilling for me. Thrill levels are just such a personal thing! I wonder, does he/she like other thrilling kinds of rides? Have you ever tried The Barnstormer? That one is pretty similar, thrill-level wise. Or Frozen Ever After? That one isn't quite as thrilling, but still has some moments that could shed insight into how your little one handles drops and speed. I can tell you that because your mine cart sways during Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, the ride is super smooth. While there are some thrilling portions of the attraction, there are also some slower sections where you'll be immersed in the enchanting story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

    Since Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is one of the most popular attractions and can be difficult to find FastPass+ availability, I'd encourage you to go ahead and grab it for your family if you can. Once you arrive, I'd suggest checking it out in person to see what your little one thinks. You may always use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to make changes to your FastPass+ selections if you decide that your Mouseketeer might not like it after all. It will be much easier to switch your selection to something else than to find FastPass+ availability for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train once you're there.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicole, and have a truly magical vacation!
