    I have a 42"tall 3 year old who loves DWs Splash Mountain. We are going to DL for the first time ever. I've noticed the logs are different between the parks and I'm not comfortable with him having his own seat. Will he be able to sit with me?

    Hi, Melissa!

    For guests who have visited Walt Disney World, it is fun to go to the Disneyland Resort to see what is different between the two. You will see attractions in California that you will not see in Florida, such as the Matterhorn Bobsleds and Storybook Land Canal Boats and it is fun to see old favorites like Mr. Toad's Wild Ride which are no longer in Walt Disney World but still in Disneyland.

    Splash Mountain is in Walt Disney World and Disneyland Park, but the Disneyland Park version is a bit different. Logs have a single seat with 6 guests per log. You will not be able to sit with your son, as these are "single" seats. However, if your son is familiar with the ride and meets the height requirement, you can sit behind him and he will probably be just fine. The Splash Mountain in Disneyland has a few different scenes and music, and I think it goes at a bit of a quicker speed, so it has just enough small differences to make it unique.

    Ready for something funny? While Space Mountain in Walt Disney World is single seating in the rockets, Disneyland Space Mountain has two guests seated per row! This is a 40-inch height requirement, so know that your son can sit next to you on this attraction.

    Plan time for Cars Land in Disney California Adventure Park. It is amazing. Enjoy!
