    We will be traveling with our 6 year old and 1 year old. 6 year old is a thrill seeker and loves rides. When using rider swap will my wife and 6 year old be able to go on the big rides then myself and the 6 year old, or will one of us have to go w/out him?

    Hi, Nicolas!

    Welcome, and thanks for your question about exploring the Disneyland Resort with your children. I’m so happy to hear you’re planning your family’s magical theme park visit!

    I think you’ll be pleased by how many attractions you can enjoy as a family. If there is no minimum height requirement for an attraction or it’s listed as being for “any height,” then it’s safe for your 1-year-old to ride with you! Check out the complete theme park attractions list online. It can be sorted by age interest, height requirement and thrill level so you can see what’s suitable for your group. 

    It sounds like your 6-year-old will want to conquer all the thrill rides! For those attractions your infant can’t experience, I’m glad you plan to take advantage of the Rider Switch program, which allows Guests with children who don’t meet the minimum height requirement to take turns on attractions. Yes, your older child may ride twice--once with each parent!

    I hope this answers your question, Nicolas. Please feel free to send us any other questions you may have as your pixie-dusted vacation planning continues!

    Wishing you magic,
