    What is the minimum height requirement for kids to go on most rides? We plan to go early 2013 and currently my 3/4 boys are 100/106cm which I think might be a little too short.

    Hi Natasha! One of the reasons I love Walt Disney World is that the vast majority of attractions are suitable for the entire family to ride together. Only a few of the more thrilling rides in each park have height requirements. By the time of your trip in 2013, I expect that your boys will be tall enough to meet the height requirements for most rides at Disney since the smaller one is just shy now of the 40-inch height requirement for rides like Splash Mountain, Test Track, and Tower of Terror. This Attraction Height Chart list the height requirements for each park. (The chart is in inches, but if my math's right, 100 centimeters is 39.3 inches, so your sons should be able to ride most of the attractions with 40-inch height requirements next year. Only attractions with height requirements are listed on the chart; they'll be tall enough for the other rides in the parks!)
