    I have a three year old who is 41 inches at the doctor's office, how accurate are the measuring sticks at Disney world

    Dear Jessica,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great Walt Disney World Resort planning question for your upcoming trip!

    The measuring sticks that are used by Cast Members at each attraction that has a height limit are quite accurate, so your child should have no problem on any attraction that has a height minimum of 41" or less. Your child will be wearing shoes when they are measured, and due to safety requirements, of course your child would not be allowed to ride if they did not meet the appropriate height restriction. 

    There are so many excellent rides at Walt Disney World Resort that do not have a height requirement at all, and I know that all of you will have such a wondEARful vacation together!

    Hope that helps with your magical trip!
