    we are wanting to take our family to disney world we will have a 10 year old a 3 year old and 10-11 month old can we take the 3 year old and the baby on rides or does one parent always have to sit out with them?

    Hi, there!

     Vanessa, I'm happy to see you're beginning to plan a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with your family. One of my favorite things about Walt Disney World Resort is that it is perfect for Guests of ALL ages! It's my pleasure to answer your question today. 

     There are plenty of attractions your entire family, including your 3-year old and infant, can experience together! Slow rides that have no height restrictions are especially perfect for your littlest kiddos. My boys even enjoyed Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion when they were as little as your infant and 3-year old - they were too young to be frightened! Many of these attractions, like Kilimanjaro Safaris and "it's a small world," feature bench seating that offers enough room for your family of five to sit together. Others, like The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and The Seas with Nemo & Friends, very comfortably seat three, so you can split into two groups to ride; one party of two and one party of three. 

     For attractions with height restrictions that your infant and 3-year old don't meet, use Disney's Rider Switch Service! We love to use Disney's Rider Switch Service when one of our kids isn't quite big enough to experience a particular attraction. Using the service allows all the eligible Guests in our group a chance to ride, while saving us from experiencing two or more wait times! 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Vanessa. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have as you prepare for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
