    Hello, i am taking my daughter to disney world for the first time and we are visiting all 4 parks is there any rides she will even be able to get on?

    Hi Andrea,

    What an exciting time for your family! Your princess's first visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth?! She's going to LOVE it, and you're going to love experiencing it with her and seeing the magic come alive through her eyes!

    I'm happy to let you know that no matter how old she is or how tall she is, there are dozens of attractions that you'll be able to experience together. Walt's vision was to build a place where families could play together, and you'll find that whether you're riding an attraction, watching a cavalcade stroll by, eating a scrumptious Mickey-shaped snack, or just soaking in the magical atmosphere, Walt Disney World Resort is a place where Mouseketeers of all ages can play, imagine, dream, and enjoy. You're going to have SO MUCH FUN!

    Disney restricts access to attractions based on height, not age, so I'd encourage you to measure her at home and compare her current height to this list of attractions with all of their height restrictions. That will give you a great idea of what to expect once you arrive, as far as which attractions she'll be able to experience. My kiddos always measured their growth by which Walt Disney World Resort attractions they could experience. "Hooray! I can ride Splash Mountain now!"

    If there happen to be attractions that she's not quite ready for, I'd encourage you to take advantage of the Rider Switch service. If there will be more than one adult with you, you'll be able to take turns experiencing the attraction without needing to wait in the standby queue twice. It's a great time saver!

    Ooh...one more tip? Don't forget to pick up complimentary buttons at a theme park ticket window or Guest Relations location once you arrive. Your daughter can proudly sport a "My First Visit" button and keep it forever to remember her first Disney experience.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Andrea, and please come see us again if we can help with anything else. I'm sending pixie dust that you and your daughter have a truly magical vacation together!
