    Are ride height measurements taken with shoes on?

    Hiya Taryn!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so glad you stopped by to ask us this magical question and that you plan on visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. With so many attractions and offerings available, it can be challenging to get everything on our to-do list done, but we're always happy to share tips and tricks to make your vacation more magical!

    If you are travelling with little ones, they will not be required to take their shoes off for height measurements at the entrance of any attraction. Something you can do to plan out your vacation more efficiently, however, is to check the list of attractions using the "Height" filter online. Then, you will be able to see exactly which rides your little one(s) can go on. Otherwise, you can also use the Rider Switch service, where one parent can go on the attraction while the other waits. Then, the second parent will not have to wait the total wait time to go on the attraction! For more information, ask the Cast Member at the main entrance of the attraction you would like to visit what their rider switch process is.

    Now, one thing you can do to ensure you can ride all your favourite attractions is to purchase the Disney Genie+ on the day of your visit. To do so, you must download the My Disney Experience mobile app and click on the three-line menu at the bottom right of your screen. Then, you can either purchase the service by clicking on "My Disney Genie Day" and "Get Disney Genie+ Service" in the purple banner in the "My Day" section or by clicking on "Purchase for Today" under the "Tip Board" tab. The "Tip Board" section is also where you can purchase Individual Lightning Lanes, so do as Aladdin and use your three wishes to get the most out of your vacation! Your third and final wish will be the complimentary Disney Genie service which can be found under "My Day" to customize your preferences.

    I hope this was helpful, Taryn, and that you will have the most magical time on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your trip, please don't hesitate to reach back out. It is always such an honour to help fellow international Guests plan their magical vacations!

    Have a magical day,
