    What rides can 2 year olds go on? What rides have the parent swap? I'd like all of us to enjoy rides at the same time whenever possible and it would be helpful to know. Thanks!

    The rides your child can go on will be determined more by height than by age.  The shortest answer is that the majority of rides will be open to your little one.  The smallest roller coaster is Goofy's Barnstormer and it has a 35 inch height requiement, so your 2-year-old might even be tall enough for that.

    Other rides with height restrictions include Kali River Rapids, Expedition Everest, Dinosaur, Primevil Whirl, Test Track, Mission: SPACE, Soarin', Star Tours, Tower of Terror, Rock N Rollercoaster, Stitch's Great Escape, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  Parent swap is available at all of these attractions (including Barnstormer) so you will be able to minimize your wait time.

    We have been taking our girls practically since birth and they have ridden everything without height restrictions even as infants.  Disney is an amazingly family-friendly environment like no amusement park you've ever been to, so don't worry about what your child will be able to do.  You will be able to enjoy 99% of the rides and attractions as a family, and that is a magical thing.
