    We R going to Disney 10/28, we are taking 4 adults 3 kids (8, 7, and 10 mon.) All 7 of us including the 10 mon old would like to wait in line for rides so we can chat and play. Can we hand off the 10 mon. old right in the ride instead of rider swap?

    Hi Katie,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your excellent question. As you probably know, safety is the No. 1 objective of the Disney guest experience, and that's why there are height requirements on some of the attractions.

    To prevent a small guest from accidentally getting aboard a ride that might not be safe for them, the theme parks do not allow anyone in the queues who do not meet the requirements to ride. You will find the height measurements at the entrance to the queues for that reason. Rider switch is designed to minimize the inconvenience.

    The good news is that there are many rides and attractions in the four Walt Disney World parks that are geared to participants of all ages and sizes, even infants. For example, there are 33 Magic Kingdom attractions that have no height requirements and can be enjoyed by your entire family.

    To help you plan, here is a link to the complete list of attractions that have no height requirement at all four parks, 99 in all!
