    I will be traveling to Walt Disney World with my 5 month old daughter. Will I be able to hold her on my lap on any of the rides in the parks and obviously I am not talking about the Tower of Terror!!!

    You can bring your baby with you on any ride for which there is no height restriction.

    On those rides with no height restriction, babies and toddlers are welcome to ride on an adult's lap. In many cases, the baby would not be able to see anything unless she were elevated a bit.

    I have very fond memories of taking my daughters to WDW when they were babies and having them on my lap during rides such as Small World, the Jungle Cruise, Dumbo, Peter Pan, and many others.

    The one attraction I know of where lap-riding is NOT allowed is the Tomorrowland Speedway. For this attraction, all riders must be in their own seat.

    Have a great trip to WDW!
