    Which rides wouldn't you recommend for a 4 year old?? My 4 y/o meets the 40" height requirement but I've heard that some rides are scary and/or overwhelming for young children; Particularly DINOSAUR, TOWER OF TERROR, STAR TOURS AND STITCH'S GREAT ESC

    Hi, Phillip! Great question!

    I wouldn't recommend Stitch's Great Escape to anyone. Of the remaining rides with a 40" height restriction, here are the ones that I think might pose a problem to a kid who scares easily:
    • Dinosaur
    • Tower of Terror
    I think Star Tours is okay to do if your 4 year old doesn't spook at dark rides and 3D experiences. Same with Big Thunder Mountain - the caves are a little eerie for a little dude but, based on my experience, they work through it.

    Snow White's Scary Adventure doesn't have a height restriction but it does have a little bit of a spook factor.
