    I am a single mom bringing a 10 year old girl and 8 year old boy to WDW. The youngest loves roller coasters but doesn't want go by himself. Is there a way to have the oldest wait with us in line and then wait at the exit sign or with a cast member?

    Hi Angie:

    I'm with you and your ten-year-old. I'm always looking for ways to get out of riding roller coasters.

    So long as your daughter meets the height requirement, you can accompany your daughter on the queue, have your daughter exit without riding, and pick up your daughter at the ride exit. Your daughter can simply use the so-called "chicken exit" at the end of queues. Often there are signs directing you to these "chicken" exits, or you can ask a Cast Member at the end of the line where the nearest exit is and they will point you in the right direction where your daughter can exit. A Cast Member likely won't be available to accompany, wait with, or watch over your daughter, so you and your daughter need to make the decision if your daughter can handle this solo. At minimum, I would make sure you have a meeting place and cell phones in case you get separated.

    Enjoy your vacation.
