    Can my 8 year old and 5 year old ride together on "all heights" rides or rides they both meet the height requirement of? I remember seeing something about kids under 7 need to be with and adult... Thanks!

    Hello Sara!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, there are so many attractions that your whole family will be able to enjoy together. The majority of attractions have no height requirement and many that do are small enough for children of all ages to experience. If both of your children meet the height requirements for an attraction, you will still need to accompany your 5 year old. Currently the rule is that children under 7 years old need to be accompanied by someone 14 years or older in the same ride vehicle. Fortunately, many attractions actually seat three Guests in the same row. Some examples include Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Peter Pan's Flight, and "it's a small world" in Disneyland Park and Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters, Mater's Junkyard Jamboree, and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure in Disney California Adventure Park. These are just a few examples but there are many more! You can easily check height requirements and attraction wait times on the official Disneyland app at home and when you arrive to the parks.

    I hope this helps, and I'm wishing you all a very magical vacation!
