    What are the height restrictions on rides?

    Hi there, Jeffrey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so delighted you are eagerly planning your vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    You will find that the Walt Disney World Resort is truly a family-friendly destination. Most attractions and entertainment are suitable for all ages and do not have a height requirement. As attractions get more thrilling, though, you will see that there are some height requirements listed for safety reasons. These range from 32" to 60" depending on the attractions at each of the four theme parks and two water parks.

    You can view this handy guide online which lists every single attraction with its height requirement by theme park location. Alternatively you can even search by height requirement on the attractions page. If someone in your party is not tall enough for an attraction and others want to ride, you might be eligible to take part in the convenient Rider Switch service which allows Guests to take turns riding an attraction while a little one sits it out. Just mention this to the Cast Member at the attraction queue entrance to get more information.

    I hope this helps. Have a Fantasmic day!
