    What are the height requirements for kids?

    Hi there, Amy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for stopping by with your question. I love that the Disneyland Resort is the perfect destination for families and children of all ages. It's truly a place where everyone can have fun together.

    There are such a variety of attractions between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. From classic, timeless attractions to thrilling and immersive rides. Most attractions actually do not have a height requirement meaning they are safe for even the littlest infant Guests. We started taking my son before he was one year old, and he was able to enjoy attractions like Dumbo the Flying Elephant, "it's a small world," Peter Pan's Flight, The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure, and Pirates of the Caribbean to name just a few. As children get older and taller, more options will be available to them. At 32" your little one can experience Autopia, Mater's Junkyard Jamboree, and Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters. At 35" they can experience their first roller coaster in Mickey's Toontown, Gadget's Go Coaster. Once your child is 40' tall they will have so many more attractions available to them like Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Star Tours to name just a few. You can view all attractions and their height requirements online as well as on the official Disneyland app.

    Keep in mind that even if your little one isn't tall enough for every attraction, they still will have an amazing time meeting Characters, watching entertainment like live music, parades, and fireworks, as well as enjoying indulgent food and treats.

    I hope this helps, and remember that you've got a friend in me here if you have any other vacation-planning questions. Have a Fantasmic day!
