    My son is 7 and it will be just me and him for one day at Hollywood Studios. Is there an option for single parents to ride on rides where the children are not babies but too small to get on say, Tower of Terror?

    Hi Ruben,

    Unfortunately not. There is no provision in the parks for supervising children. The only option would be for you to hire a baby sitter to go with you to the parks for the day to sit with your son while you go on the rides. You could arrange this through However, this would be a very expensive option when all you really want is sitting for a few minutes.

    Depending on how tall your son is, he may be able to go on even the thrill rides with you. My own daughters went on the Tower of Terror when they were six and Rock n' Roller Coaster when they were eight. However, I completely understand that some children might not be ready for this big step. If that's the case with your son, then I would just skip those very few rides during this trip. There are plenty of rides and attractions that you could do together.

    Have a wonderful time sharing this special day with your son.
