    Is Goofy's Barnstormer closed? If so, what other roller coasters can a small child ride? Many thanks!

    Hi there Molly!

    You have an adventurous child I see!! My daughter has loved roller coasters since she was very small... I think her first time was when she was two and has been riding them ever since! It is true that since Toontown officially closed it's doors on February 11th, 2011, Goofy's Barnstormer is getting  nice "Extreme Makeover" well, not really "extreme" but do you like how I tied another ABC brand into the conversation? HA HA! Anyway, whether your child will be able to ride another coaster at the parks is dependent on the height of your child. The height requirement for GB was 35"... This is a link with Ride height information. My son rode Big Thunder Mountain last summer and he had just turned 5, I just wish he was a coaster nut like my daughter! I hope this helps with your planning. Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel. Have a great time at the Walt Disney World Resort!!
