The Importance of a Height Check

As adults, we have it easy. We don’t have to think of a silly thing like an age or height requirement when thinking about the rides that we want to experience when on vacation. And, I am sorry to say that WDW, like any other theme park, is no exception and does have posted height requirements for many of their attractions.

It is easy to locate the height requirements through a simple web search, but I have posted the requirements for ALL current attractions at WDW below, restriction or not. I have also provided easy to read and print sheets if you needed for reference!

The last thing that ANY parent wants is for their child to obsess over being able to go on a ride, and then realize they are too small. Thankfully, most of the rides within WDW do not have a height requirement, so chances are, the tears and tantrums will be reserved for fits of rage over ice cream or a stuffed animal. 😉

I certainly hope that the below list is as helpful to others as it has been for us as we plan our daughter’s first WDW trip where she isn’t an itty bitty 2 year old!

If I forgot anything, or you see a typo, please feel free to let me know!
