    I am a single mom taking my twin daughters (9 yrs old) to disney for the first time, very excited! My question is, are most rides "2 -seaters" or will we be able to go on an experience together as a family?

    Hi there Caren!

    Disney families come in all different sizes and configurations, and the parks do a great job of helping them ride attractions!  I've traveled with my two kids alone, and had no problems experience the rides together.  There are several in which you can ride as a "three-some", including:  It's a Small World, Peter Pan, and Winnie the Pooh, and others where you'll be in the same "car", even if you're not on the same "bench" (examples are Aladdin's Magic Carpet and Snow White).  The cast members are great at accommodating families, while keeping your safety in mind.  My boys and I were permitted to "squeeze" onto Goofy Barnstormer because the lap bar was able to go all the way down.  My kids are younger than your girls though, so I suspect they'd be comfortable riding together in a car in front of you. 

    I've given you examples at Magic Kingdom, but the same is the case at all of the other parks, where there are plenty of attractions you can ride together, or in a configuration that works for your family!

    Have a magical trip with your princesses!
