    I am coming to Disneyworld with a 3 and 4.5 year old. We plan to go to Magic Kingdom. On the attractions that say they are for pre-schoolers and there is no height limit, will both kids be able to go on the rides with me?

    Hi Eleanor,

    You're all going to have big fun at MK!!!  If this is their first visit, be sure to stop by Guest Relations as you enter Main Street and pick up "1st Visit" buttons for them.  They make great free souvenEARs!!!

    There are a few attractions at MK that have minimum height requirements:
    * Splash Mountain - 40"
    * Big Thunder Mountain Railroad - 40"
    * Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm - 35"
    * Tomorrowland Speedway - 32" to ride / 54" to ride alone
    * Space Mountain - 44"
    * Stitch's Great Escape - 40"

    Keep in mind that just because a child meets minimum height requirements or that there is no height requirement, doesn't mean the attraction is suitable for them.  Obviously Haunted Mansion is dark and could be scary to young kids, but so is Snow White's Scary Adventures.  And I would think hard before taking kids that age to Stitch's Great Escape.  Even the Tomorrowland Transit Authority has a very dark part when you're going through Space Mountain - you literally can't see the person beside you. Just make sure you inform them that there may be some dark places but nothing is going to jump out and grab them.  You know your kids better than anyone so use your own judgement. 

    Don't worry - there are a lot of amazing things to see and do and you'll have the time of your life watching the magic through the eyes of a child.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.  We're excited to help!
