Visiting A theme park with three kids( age 5.5, 3, and 5 months) and one adult can seem daunting, if not impossible. When ever we do it I get so many comments of “your here alone?” or “brave mama” even “you must be crazy!” While it is a task to concur I feel it has been worthwhile. The first few trips were harder but now we have a list of rides and attractions we visit and can enjoy a day at DCA.
Rides we cannot ride because of a height requirement:
Luigi’s flying tires: 32″
Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree: 32″
Tuck and Roll’s Drive ‘Em Buggies: 36″
Silly swings: 40″
Jumpin’ Jellyfish: 40″
Soarin’ over California: 40″
Tower of Terror: 40″
Radiator Springs Racers: 40″
Goofy’s sky school: 42″
Grizzly River Run: 42″
California screaming: 48″
You should note that these are all the rides in cars land.Also you should note we can not ride on :
Golden Zephyr: all riders must sit on the bench without help.
Francis’ Ladybug Boogie: all riders must sit on the seat without help.
Tuck and Roll’s Drive ‘Em Buggies: Only two people fit in a car and kids under 7 must ride with an adult. So if you have 2 kids under 7 with one adult you cannot do this ride.
That is a long list of rides! You might think there is nothing left to do. If we were only were only visiting for a day with one adult and three kids I might skip the park altogether. BUT since we are local (and have an annual passport) we still have a short list of attractions that the kids LOVE and so it makes it worth while.
I will tell you about those next week.
