    Hi everyone! One quick question, we're coming in April (w/ 2 boys 4 & 6). My 4 yr old is 39 1/2" tall barefoot and 40" with shoes. So do you think he's good to go for the 40" minimum height requirements? Thanks for all of your help

    Hi Kelli,

    Your youngest son will be measured  at any attraction with a minimum height requirement by a Cast Member before boarding.  If he meets the requirement (wearing his park shoes), he will be permitted to proceed.  Height requirements are in place to ensure the safety of riding guests, so Cast Members at each attraction will enforce the posted minimum .  If you'd like to pre-plan, you can find a complete list of height requirements on the Walt Disney World website. If you click HERE, you will see a button on the right hand side of the page that says "Height Requirements." Clicking on this link will bring you to PDF that you can download.

    I hope this helps!
