A Guide to Walt Disney World Height Requirements

It's what you look forward to as a kid.  You want to ride your first roller coaster.  You've wait for this moment to arrive.  But oh no! You are asked to step up to the attraction's height indicator.  You just hit below the cannot ride.  And you then must walk away, upset, knowing you won't get to ride the attraction you were so hoping to get on.

It's the saddest moment as a kid, and I've been there multiple times as a kid myself.  (Being short stinks guys.)  But know that these height requirements are all set for a very good reason.

As someone who has worked in a theme park and had to turn guests away because they were too short, I know how disheartening it can be to turn the child away, but these measures are put in place so your child is safe.  You don't want to have an incident happen where your child sneaks on a ride and then god forbid, something goes wrong.

So, I'm here to give you a guide as to which attractions you child can ride at each individual height level at the four Walt Disney World theme parks:

I really do hope that this guide helps you as you plan your trips in the future to Walt Disney World.  Knowing what your child can ride before you get to the parks can really help to minimize disappointment in the future.  Because, I can tell you, no one takes pleasure in turning a child away from an attraction they were so looking forward to riding. This is one of those instances where the more you know is better for all.
