    What is the height requirements on rides?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, you’re as welcome as can be at planDisney, Victor! 

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question for us. 

    It sounds like you’re planning a vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth and that’s something to chEAR about! There’s nothing quite like walking through the tunnels of Magic Kingdom Park and into a world of imagination and fantasy. Be sure to take in all the colorful sights, whimsical sounds, and enjoy every minute of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Victor, you can find the height requirements listed under each Theme Park here. You will find many of the attractions and rides are available for all Guests regardless of height, but to ensure a safe and fun experience, there are rides that the smaller Mouseketeers won't be able to experience just yet. 

    If you’re traveling with a Mouseketeer who cannot or does not want to experience a certain attraction, you will find the Rider Switch Service to be most helpful! While my little ones are starting to love most rides, there are some they are not tall enough for or may not enjoy like their thrill-seeking mom and dad! This is where my husband and I will use this magical service so we’re not waiting twice as long for the attraction. This feature allows one adult to wait with the non-rider while the rest of the party enjoys the attraction. When the riders return to their party, the waiting adult can board the attraction without having to wait in the regular queue.  

    Victor, another helpful tip I can give you is to be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile app on your smartphone. It will allow you to see all the current wait times for the attractions you’d like to experience, you can also place Mobile Food & Beverage Orders, look up guided directions so much more.

    I hope you have the most enchanting vacation, Victor!
