How to do Attractions with Multiple Kids and One Adult


If you’re planning a trip to the parks, but will be going as a solo parent with 3 or more kids, we have some tips & info to share about attractions (specifically how many can sit in a row on rides)! There are some rides that will only allow 2-3 per row. BUT, not to worry if you think you won’t be able to ride anything! We have a list of attractions that allow more than 3 in the same row! Also, most of the time, kids under age 7 can sit in the row in front of you on a 2-3 per row ride. 

FYI: Kids need to be age 7 & older to ride alone & kids under 7 need to be accompanied by a person age 14 or older.

Rides with NO height requirement that allow MORE than 3 per row (Keep in mind these can VARY. Some other attractions will allow 4 per row at times):

  • The Teacups
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • It’s a Small World
  • Finding Nemo’s Submarine Voyage
  • The Jungle Cruise
  • Storybook Land Canal Boats
  • Casey Jr. Train cages
  • King Arthur Carrousel
  • The Disneyland Railroad (re-opening Summer 2017, but you can still explore the parked trains at the Main Street & New Orleans Square stations)
  • The Mark Twain & Sailing Ship Columbia (re-opening Summer 2017, but you can still explore the docked Mark Twain in Frontierland)

In California Adventure:

  • The Little Mermaid Ariel’s Undersea Adventure
  • Mickey’s Fun Wheel
  • King Triton’s Carousel
  • Red Car Trolley

There have been a couple of times for us that we were allowed to sit between two kids with our baby in a wrap or carrier (4 people total) on a 3 per row ride. We can’t guarantee this will always happen, so we suggest asking a Cast Member first.
