    My 3 year old is 38 inches tall. What are the height restrictions for the majority of the rides? Thanks so much for your help. Hope all is well.


    It's a right of passage!  Your child is the height to begin riding some of the attractions that have been off-limits like Kali River Rapids at Animal Kingdom!

    Visit the "Traveling with Little Ones" page on and choose the PDF document on the right-hand side of the page called Attraction Height Requirements to download a list of all of the attractions that have height restrictions.  This will give you a gauge of what your child will be able to enjoy. 

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

    p.s. HINT: A tennis shoe with a tall rubber sole will help add a little more height for your child if he/she is just an inch or so away from a favorite attraction....

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
