    I am trying to plan a trip for my daughters ages 4 and 7. I will be the only adult and I am wondering how many people are allowed on the rides at once, and if there are any special services as in an escort/helper to help if only two can go on a ride?

    Hi Shannon!

    Most of the attractions at Walt Disney World will be able to accommodate an averaged size adult and 2 young children without any problems.  In fact, for most of the attractions, you can even put your daughters in a seat directly in front of you while you ride directly behind them.  Some attractions, like Dumbo, will be a tight squeeze but I've seen it done before; I've even seen two large males (one being basically a football player) squeezed together into Dumbo!  Exceptions include some of the more exhilarating thrill rides, such as Expedition Everest in Disney's Animal Kingdom; however, those rides are a little too much for young guests anyways.

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
