    We are bringing our son from Australia for his third birthday who is Cars obsessed! He is not quite 102cm (currently 97cm) is there any way he can ride with us??

    Hi there Rebecca,

    Or should I say - KA-CHOW! Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for your question. My son is also Cars obsessed and we have been taking him to the parks since he was three so this felt like the perfect question for me to answer!

    While there really isn't any wiggle room on the height requirements (they're in place to ensure your little Mouseketeer stays safe), I'm still happy to share that there is so much more to do in Radiator Springs for your little guy.

    While you never know when growth spurts will hit - in the event that he doesn't hit that 102 cm requirement by the time of your visit, there are still two other attractions in Cars Land! My son was able to ride Radiator Springs Racers on a visit when he was three and it was a little bit intense for him at that time - there are some dark scenes including one where you are "chased" by Frank the Combine. However, he loved Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters!

    Additionally, there are numerous points throughout the day where he will get to meet some of his favorite characters like Lightning McQueen and Mater near the Cozy Cone Motel. Just keep an eye on the "Characters" filter in the Disneyland Resort mobile app to get an idea of when they'll be out and about.

    We also love stopping for a bite to eat a Flo's V8 Cafe so much that it's now become a tradition for each visit! This is one of our favorite lands in all the parks as it truly transports you to the Cars movies - your little guy is going to love it. If he's able to make it late enough, make sure to stick around when the sun goes down and the lights go on for a fun surprise!

    Thanks again for your question, Rebecca! I hope you all make some amazing new memories on your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Have a Magical Day,
