    Hi moms! Love the panel :). My question is about my childs height. For something like Star Tours are they big sticklers for the 40in? I think she is going to be really close to that but maybe not quite 40in. Thank you!

    Hi Stephanie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your kind words!  It is always nice to hear that we are able to help guests plan magical vacations.  What a great question!  Last year my daughter was hovering around the 40 inch mark and was so excited to FINALLY be able to ride the big girl attractions, until the Cast Member measured her and she was still too short!  The height requirements are in place for guest safety and Cast Members are required to abide by the requirements.  One Cast Member even flattened her "Disney Diva" hair style from the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique when they measured her!  As a parent my heart broke for my princess because I knew how much she wanted to ride the attractions, however, I was happy to see that even though she was close, the Cast Members were making sure her safety came first.  

    Sending you extra pixie dust in hopes your daughter reaches that magical height!
