    On the height requirements, is a child still allowed on a ride under the height requirements with an adult?

    Hi Mary,

    The height requirements that are in place on selected Disney World attractions are there for the safety of the guests. If an attraction has a posted height restriction, it is to make sure that guest is tall enough to properly fit into the safety belts/straps etc, needed. Unfortunately if a child does not meet the required height, he/she will not be allowed to ride even with an adult or guardian. No worries though, there are plenty of attractions at Disney World that do not have a height requirement. You should have no problem finding plenty for you and your little one to enjoy together.

    You can find some great information on height requirements at under Theme Parks. Hope you have a magical time!
