    I am a single mom of 8 and 11 year old boys. I'm wondering if it is possible for me to ride attractions like Big Thunder Mountain and Expedition Everest with each of them without waiting in line twice. This is our first trip and they might be scared.

    Hi  Allison,

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. Unfortunately, due to the age of your boys you can't participate on a child swap system. But, your boys are going to love those attractions and they will be fine. To ride the major attractions more times, you should arrive early at the parks, go to the desired attraction based on your family consensus and ride it, until the line becomes something more than 50 minutes. Less than fifty minutes it's doable and worth it. Ride that attraction again by using one of  your FastPass +  and if the boys still asking to go again, you can wait for late hour to ride, almost when the parks are preparing to close.

    Have a magical vacation!
