    We're thinking of bringing our 9 year old and would like to know what the height requirement is for the rides.

    Aloha Marisa, and thank you for bringing your question to planDisney!  

    One of the many great things about the Disneyland Resort is that they have options and attractions for visitors of all ages and heights!  You are able to filter the list of attractions by height requirement, which was so helpful when my kids were younger.  I like to visit the Attractions and Entertainment list, and then click on the "Height" button towards the top of the page.  You can then slide to select the height of your child, and a list of attractions will populate that they will be able to enjoy.  You can also find this information and filter by height requirement in the Disneyland App as well.  

    If you have a thrill seeker in your family Marisa, I highly recommend checking out Space Mountain at Disneyland Park, and the Incredicoaster at Disney California Adventure Park.  If your family prefers calmer rides, you can't go wrong with Peter Pan's Flight at Disneyland Park, and The Little Mermaid - Ariel's Underseas Adventure at Disney California Adventure Park.  There truly is something for everyone! 

    If your family has varying levels of interest in certain attractions, you can ask a Cast Member at the attraction entrance about Rider Switch, where adult guests can take turns waiting with kids or guests unable to ride.  Everyone is able to experience the attraction who would like to, without waiting in line again.  

    I hope this information was helpful for your planning Marisa, and please do not hesitate to ask me any other questions for your upcoming trip!

    Have a magical day!
