    I am traveling alone with my 2 kids - a 6 year old (47") and 4 year old (43"). On rides that seat 2 across, will one of them be able to sit by themselves and I sit with the other. Or I sit alone and they sit together.

    Welcome back to planDisney, Valerie! It's always great to assist fellow Marylanders with their Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning. As a frequent visitor to The Most Magical Place On Earth, a huge fan of staying in one of the Disney Resorts Collection hotels, and a self-proclaimed Disney food (and adult beverage) expert, I would be happy to answer your questions and any additional questions you may have.

    The Walt Disney World Property Rules state that an adult must accompany a child under the age of 7 to board an attraction. I recommend you visit the Attraction and Entertainment site, use the Height filter to see what your children can ride, and then click on specific attractions to learn more. Fortunately, plenty of rides will allow you to sit three across, and not too many that your children will qualify for by height that would sit only two across and be an issue for your upcoming vacation. I have fantastic core memories of riding things like Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, the Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, and Pirates of the Caribbean with two of my three boys.

    While you are enjoying your visit with your children, be sure to buy a refillable popcorn bucket, grab a DOLE Whip, watch Happily Ever After, and soak it all in! You will have a blast making memories! Be sure to come back to planDisney and ask me any additional questions you may have, or let me know if you would like my Disney Resorts Collection hotel, dining, or ride recommendation.

    See you real soon,
