I’m trying to figure out problem areas we might encounter in the parks with only two adults and kids ages 11, 9, triplets age 6.
My earliest vivid Disney World memory is not getting to ride Space Mountain. I was 6 years old. I was tall enough. My brother, 5, was also tall enough. The train pulled up, but we were not allowed on because my Dad had taken the previous train with my sister (ironically, not tall enough), and my mom could not get on with both of us at the same time, and neither of us was allowed to ride alone. We were escorted, crying, into an empty room to wait for my Dad and sister to finish riding and meet us. Younger sister (not yet 3) of course hated the ride and was also crying. As far as I know, no solution was offered and we all left the ride in tears (okay, maybe not my parents, but I’m sure they weren’t happy).
So. My question is, what problems might we run into with a bunch of small kids?
We have occasionally skirted 1:1 adult to small child ratios in the past by sticking a triplet with my oldest or just flat ignoring the rules (choosing to ask forgiveness over permission). I am hoping that at 6 years and 44+" we will not have any problems, but reassurance would be great! Not all Disney memories need to be relived.
