    My daughter is 4, but is still only 36" tall due to being extremely small and premature at birth. I am concerned that she will not be able to enjoy many of the rides that are age appropriate for her due to her small stature. Any thoughts on this?

    Hi Candice! Please, no worries about finding enough wonderful things for your daughter to enjoy during your Walt Disney World vacation.

    You can check out the attractions that have Height Restrictions. As you can see most of these are the roller coaster ones that most young children would choose not to ride in any case. The height restrictions are enforced for the safety of the guests so it does not matter what the age of the child is. They are very strict about this too.

    I have taken my grandchildren to Walt Disney World several times and they range in age from 8 months to 11 years. I have lived through them waiting until they were tall enough to ride some of the rides and then found out they chose not to anyway. But in the meantime they loved so many of the other attractions and still head right to many of them first. Your daughter will have an amazing vacation at Disney and will find some favorite rides as well as favorite characters to talk about for years until her next trip back!
