    Hi Moms!! How strict are they on height requirement? My son is 2 right now and is 38" and i see that a lot of rides require 40". If he is close will they let him ride? We have 16 MORE DAYS TO GO!!!! Thanks you so much for the great informati

    They are very strict on the height requirements. On many rides they actually measure kids twice: once at the queue entrance and again at the ride loading area. I can't see any way that your 38" son is going to get on the 40" rides. Also, remember that those height requirements are there for a reason -- to protect the safety of the rider. A 40" height may be required for the rider safety restraint system to function.

    Don't worry, you'll find plenty of things to enjoy with your son, even if he's not tall enough for some attractions. And you can always come back in a year or two when he's bigger :-)

    I'm sure you and your little cutie will have a great trip.
