    Age restrictions? We have grand children ages 9 and 12 girls.

    Hey, Gary and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Sounds like A Grand Adventure is in the works for a spectacular Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Mickey is going to be so excited to see you and your granddaughters.

    There are no age restrictions for enjoying the magic at Walt Disney World theme parks. From Character meet and greets to Slinky Dog Dash and from Mission Space to a Mad Tea Party, there are attractions for every age. The only restrictions for Guests are done by height. Height requirements are listed on every individual theme park attraction webpage to make sure that young adventurers are safe. For example, on the Slinky Dog Dash webpage, you will see a light blue box on the right that gives general details about the attraction. The height requirement is "38in (97cm) or taller" while the Haunted Mansion (it is creepy and kooky) is "Any Height." My boys were enjoying all the attractions when they were 9 years old and we are short people. You can sort all the attractions by height on the Walt Disney World Resort webpage by going to the top of the page and selecting "Things to Do," then "Attractions." Near the middle of the page are the words "Filter By" with several options to the right. Choose "Height" and you will see all the attractions available for the height of your shortest Mousketeer.

    Disney Dad Tip: Please use the My Disney Experience mobile app. You can get directions, schedule FastPass+ selections, Mobile Order Food and Beverages, shop for merchandise, and see your Disney PhotoPass Service photos.

    Gary, enjoy making many Magical Memories with your Grand Adventure.
