    I am a single parent taking a 5 and 7 year old. Will they be able to ride everything without me sitting with them?

    Hi David, 

    How fun to be planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort with your children! You will make memories together which will last a lifetime. As long as your children meet the minimum height requirements for the attractions, they can sit together and you don't need to ride with them. If you all want to ride together, there are many attractions which have seating configurations which enable you to sit in a row of three. For those ride which do only have side-by-side seating, they can sit together and then a "single rider" may be seated next to you. If there are rides which you simply would prefer not to ride, as long as they are comfortable riding together and meet the minimum height requirements, you are welcome to wait for them at the attraction exit. 

    I hope you and your children have a wonderful time together! 

    Wishing you magical memories,
