    Love the Panel! My son is exactly 40 in tall. Is there a possibility that he could be turned away at some of the rides with 40 in height req while admitted to others? Will he have to remove his shoes to prove he meets the height req in barefeet? Thanks.

    Hi Donna,

    If your son meets the height requirement now in bare-feet, he should be perfectly fine with shoes on. The Cast Members don't make the children remove their shoes. I recall my daughter just barely making a height cut off, so I made sure she had nice soles on her sneakers ;) . The height requirements are for safety, so as long as he meets that requirement at home I would feel comfortable having him ride the attractions that he qualifies for.

    The "good news" is that they measure children at the start of the line (before they actually get into line), so as to spare the disappointment that would come if they got all the way to the front and then were told no. You'll be able to tell right away if he's given the "all clear" this way.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
