    I know there are height requirements for children, but are there any official requirements for infants on rides? We are brining a 4 mo. old & not sure what to expect in that regard.

    Hello Cindy!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    While we recently had to use the Rider Switch Service for Soarin' in Epcot because my son was just under the height requirement, my family has never had a Cast Member inform us that we were unable to ride other attractions because my children were too small.

    Walt Disney World Resort is an Endlessly Magical place for the young and young-at-heart.  As such, many of the rides, shows and entertainment is geared with their enjoyment in mind. When planning, be sure to take a look at the Walt Disney World resort planning pages for preschoolers and young children to get a sense of everything available to the wee ones.

    As far as requirements for attractions where height is not an issue, it is up to parental discretion on whether a ride, show or event is suitable for your child. Be sure to peruse the  attractions to get a sense of each experience and feel free to inquire with a Cast Member at the entrance of each experience and ask them to describe the experience.

    Based on that information, make a decision based on the needs of your child and all of the Guests in your party as to whether it is suitable.

    Once you narrow down your experiences, be sure to use FastPass+ Selections on those must-do attractions to add further Magic to your day and bypass a few standby queues.

    Have a Magical First Vacation!
