    I will be travelling to Disney with my family DS12, DS10, DD4, for our first visit. My husband and I are not fond of thrill rides, our son's love them. Is it possible to wait in line with the boys and put them on a ride and then wait for them at the end?

    You can see my answer to a similar question here. But the answer is yes, in general you are welcome to stand in line with your kids, make an exit near the end, and meet them at the exit. We often do this with our daughters at the Primeval Whirl attraction at the Animal Kingdom. Both my husband and I like roller coasters, but spinning rides are tough -- and the Primeval Whirl is roller coastery and spinny. Yikes.

    A couple of little additional things to note for you... First, make sure that your four year old meets any ride height restrictions before promising her that she can ride anything. You don't want to disappoint her on that front. Second, I would check near the entrance to each attraction that it's fine your kids to ride alone. I very much doubt that you would have a problem. As I said, my girls (ages 11 and 8) have ridden on Primeval Whirl alone dozens of times. But I'm a better safe than sorry kind of girl and I'd hate for them to wait in line for no reason.
