    I am a single mom traveling to WDW mid Jan w/ my daughters ages 6 and 13. Do you have any suggestions on how to keep them both happy during our 4 day trip? Are there any single ride options the teenager can take advantage of while the little one and I wait

    Hi Kenya,

    I  travel to Disney World alone with my two boys in tow all the time!  I'm sure your girls will have a magical time.  There are many attractions which will enable all three of you to either ride together or sit near each other.  Your little one is probably tall enough to ride Test Track and Soarin at Epcot.  These two attractions are sure to delight everyone in your family, including your teen.  In fact, I think you will find that throughout all four theme parks, most attractions will be well suited for all three of you, as they appeal to all age groups.  For any attractions that your little one is too young to enjoy, your older daughter is welcome to ride alone.  If you are interested in riding as well, you can make use of Disney's "rider swap" option, where you only have to wait once, and then "switch" who watches your youngest. 

    Have a wonderful time!
