    Hi there We are taking our granddaughter she is 9, this is her first trip. If she wants to ride a ride that we don't want to do or are too scared to do( she wants slinky dog) can we stand in line with her then chicken out, can she ride alone? Thanks!

    Hiya Stacey!

    I bet you are thrilled to be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth with your granddaughter! My parents asked the same question when they first brought me to Walt Disney World Resort as a child because I have always loved thrill rides! Get ready for some serious fun, and I have a feeling you are about to become your granddaughter's favorite relatives, if you're not already! 

    The Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules state, "Guests under age 14 must be accompanied by a Guest age 14 or older to enter a theme park or water park. To board an attraction, children under 7 must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older." Since your granddaughter is 9, she can board Slinky Dog Dash by herself without any problems! You are more than welcome to wait with her in the queue and then as you put it best, "chicken out" once she boards! Just let the Cast Member at the queue know and they will be more than happy to allow your party through. 

    Be sure to take advantage of making FastPass+ selections for your family. That way, you're not waiting too long for rides and spend more time enjoying your trip. Your granddaughter is going to have the best time! I adore Slinky Dog Dash; it's one of my favorite rides. The last time I visited Disney's Hollywood Studios, I got to the Park an hour before it opened and was the first in line to ride it! Because I was in and out of the attraction so quickly, I got to ride it three times in a row!

    There are plenty of attractions you can all enjoy together. Since you'll be visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios, my family and I love Toy Story Mania and watching A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. It's totally alright to sing your heart out; in fact, it's recommended!

    Stacey, I hope you and your family have the most magical vacation!
