    I am taking a solo trip with my 7yr old twins. One of them wants to go on a 2 coasters but wants to ride with me. The other is petrified of them! What do you do when you are outnumbered? Is there a spot where the non-rider can sit out when we get to board?

    Hiya, fellow twin momma!

    My boys just turned five, and they have a sister who is two years older, so my husband and I are often outnumbered in the Parks. They are identical, and as I am sure you know with twins, share as many similarities as they do differences! It sounds like our sets are very similar - one throws caution to the wind, and the other holds on tight to it!

    Walt Disney World Resort policy is that an adult must accompany all children under the age of seven at all times. So your kiddos are right there at the cusp. This means that while you can ask a Cast Member if your twin can wait on the platform while you two ride, your request may not be granted. Keep in mind that the Cast Member is only doing their job and trying their best to keep your kiddo and the other Guests safe and happy.

    You will be surprised by how many rides you can all enjoy together! If your cautious twin wants to test the waters with a faster ride, I suggest Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or The Barnstormer. Both of them will have enough thrill for their sibling but are tame enough even for my cautious babe. Toy Story Mania! and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin also offer fun thrills. You essentially play a video/carnival game while spinning around on a ride. For your thrill-seeker, Expedition Everest, Test Track, and Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run have single rider lines. As long as your child makes the height cut, and they and the Cast Members are comfortable letting them head into the ride alone, this is also an option!

    Elizabeth, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. I wish you a vacation with double the magic!
