    Will be ad DW in a few weeks. For the rides with height restrictions are they measured as inches from the ground or do they deduct some height for shoes for the height. I ask as my daughter is 38 1/2" tall barefooted and she is looking forward to mine

    Hey there, Sean! Thanks for stopping by to see us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It's so exciting when your little ones are finally tall enough for some of the "big kid" rides, isn't it? My 5-year-old is tall enough for many of them now, but still pretty skeptical about getting on some of the faster rides. His dad isn't giving up on getting him on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, though. One of these days, he just may surprise us!

    The times we actually have gotten him through the line to venture onto a new ride, the measurement part went quite smoothly. The Cast Member will have your daughter stand next to a height line. As long as she measures up, you should be good to go. My son normally wears sneakers in the parks, and we've never had anyone question how much the shoes add to his height. I think as long as your daughter is wearing fairly flat shoes that are typical for the parks, you won't have any issues.

    Hang onto this handy height guide to help you remember which attractions your daughter can hop on as she grows.

    I hope your little one has a blast on her first ride with Snow White's pals, Sean. Wishing you and your family a magical Walt Disney World vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
