    Trying to plan a trip to MK with my toddler. I've heard conflicting information about age requirements (not posted) along with the known height requirements for a select few rides. I have a very tall toddler. Are there ANY rides with age req's?

    Greetings Bri!

    Thanks for bringing this great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Someone once asked me, "why would you take a young child to Walt Disney World? They will never remember the trip."  My response to this inquiry is always the same- we take little ones to Walt Disney World to experience their joy and excitement. It builds memories for US. On our recent visit, I saw a t-shirt that said, "This is a Core Memory Day."  Truer words have never been printed on a shirt!

    There are currently no age requirements for riding attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort.  As you have noted, there are height requirements that are in place to ensure the safety of guests on some attractions. The only other consideration is your child's tolerance for thrill rides. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror has one of the lowest height requirements of any attraction (40 inches). However, many little ones would find this to be genuinely terror-inducing!

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any other questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We love to help!

    See ya real soon,
