    So if my child is 37" and most rides require 40", does this mean she can't get on any of them OR she can ride as along as a parent is riding with them. Does the height restriction mean in terms of them riding alone or at all, parent or no parent.

    Hi, Jenifer! Unfortunately, if the child doesn't meet the height requirement, he/she will not be able to ride for any reason, even with a parent.  I understand why, though.  These restrictions are necessary to meet safety standards.  Walt Disney World puts Guests' safety at top priority.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
