    hi! I am traveling alone with my 3 kids but my bigest daughter is already 11, then 6 and 2. can my 11 and 6 years old kids go in a ride by them self while i go with the 2 years old or can we make the 4 together? what can i do?

    Hi Cristina!

    Walt Disney World Resort is a fabulous vacation for all ages.  Most of the attractions can be enjoyed by the entire family.  If your only experience is with regional amusement parks then I know that sounds strange, but it's true.  Most of the attractions have been designed for the entire family to enjoy together.

    If you are worried about fitting into an attraction vehicle, I don't think you will have any problems.  I have two boys, ages 12 and 7, and then have been riding together for years!  We all wait in line together and when it is time to board a vehicle, my two boys usually board their own vehicle while my wife and I board another.

    If you are thinking about sending your two older kids off to an attraction on their own while you go somewhere else with your youngest, then I would not recommend it.  Walt Disney World, and the individual theme parks, are very large!  While I believe it is one of the happiest and safest places on Earth, I still don't recommend young children going off on their own.

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
