    Visiting in Sept w/ 4 year daughter will be her 4th trip. She is now 40” Is it common to see kids that young riding on Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain She has ridden all the other rides & loves everything but not sure if she is too young for thos

    Hey David!  How exciting for your daughter to be headed to WDW for her 4th trip!  If she loves to ride and she is tall enough, then my personal opinion would be to let her go!  My five year old rode all of the rides you are talking about when she was 4, and she begged to do them over and over.  Every child is different, but if she already loves to ride then she is going to love Splash Mountain and Big Thunder!  And yes you will see children her age on the rides. 
    Thanks so much for the great question, and I hope you all have another magical trip in September!
