Sorry, forgot to type security.... i was hoping they would let her go through security too when I bring my kids to their gate.

I believe that would be up to the agent at the ticket counter. Back 3 or 4 years a go my grandma, grandpa, and I all got gate passes to take my 2 cousins the gate without question in Orlando. So I believe it can be done just gotta ask at the ticket counter when checking in. 

 

Feel free to let us know here if it works for you so if others come with the same question later on they can see your experience. 

 

Hope this helps

My thinking is similar to Blake's.  If you have one minor you are usually allowed to proceed with an escort pass so if there is more than one child I don't see why you would not be allowed to have two escorts.

 

Also to avoid confusion for others who reference the thread in the future an "unaccompanied minor" (a child age 5-11 travelling alone) is required to have an escort go through to the gate on both ends of travel and the escort needs to stay at the gate until the flight is in the air.  A "young traveller" (a child age 12-17 travelling without an accompanying passenger age 18 or older) an escort pass for an adult is optional.  Here is the source page.

 

I hope they have a great and fun flight!!!
