    Me and my wife will be coming to disney with our 3yr old(leaving newborn at home).Concern is our Party of 3 will make 2 seater rides difficult.What rides limit us from riding together,and is there a way so we can both experience the ride with our daughter?

    Hello Brian, thanks for visiting us at the Moms Panel.   3 is my favorite age to bring a child to Walt Disney World. I love seeing how  magical a vacation can be through the eyes of a child.  My husband and I traveled to Walt Disney World when my daughter was 3, and we were surprised how many rides we were able to enjoy as a family.

    At the Magic Kingdom  the only rides I think you may have a problem seating three would be the Tomorrowland Speedway, Astro-Orbiter, and The Barnstormer.  Keep in mind you will only be a seat away and can snap some really great pictures.  We have an unforgettable picture of my daughter and me on The Barnstormer captured by her daddy who was in front of us.  

    Unless your daughter is very tall, I don't see any problems at  Disney's Animal Kingdom, or Disney's Hollywood Studios, the rides that would only hold two guests are Expedition Everest-Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith.   You will be able to experience everything as a family at Epcot!  

    Enjoy every minute of your vacation with your daughter, she will be a grown princess before you know it!
