    I am going to visit WDW in August for the 1st time with two small kids by myself. I am overwhelmed!! Whaat are height requirements for the rides? What areas of the park should I target for age 6 and 4, both girls?

    Hi Rebecca,

    Think of the happiest little thought & breathe - we can help you through this & you're going to have a great trip!  Be sure to stop by Guest Relations to pick up "1st Visit" buttons for all of you.

    To find a list of attractions with height requirements, visit the Traveling With Little Ones section by clicking here. On the right side of that page, you'll see a PDF file with a list of attractions with height requirements at all of the parks.

    I'm not sure which park(s) you plan to visit but my # 1 recommendation is the Magic Kingdom. There is so much to see & do there for kids their age: * Meet some of their favorite princess & other characters in Toontown * Boys & girls love Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin * Fantasyland is full of rides they'll love * The WDW railroad, Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Jungle Cruise & Country Bear Jamboree are also big hits * When you're ready for a little break, climb aboard the Tomorrowland Transit Authority for a ride * There are great character dining locations - if they are into princesses you may want to consider  Cinderella's Royal Table (advanced reservations are strongly recommended 407-WDW-DINE) * Little girls love makeovers at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique - there is a location in MK & 1 at DTD (advanced reservations are strongly recommended 407-939-7895) * The Move it! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party is super fun! You get to dance with the characters in the street * Don't forget the parades (the nighttime parade is different than the afternoon parade) & fireworks.

    If you are planning to visit other parks, let me know & I'm happy to give you some ideas for those as well. Wishing you many magical memories :-)  Allison
