    I have a 3 year old little boy and 7 year old little girl. I would love to take them to Disney, but want them both to be able to enjoy all of it. What are the height requirements for the rides. How do I find them?

    Hello Beth!

    I am thrilled to hear you are thinking about planning a Walt Disney World vacation for your little prince and princess.  It is always a magical adventure watching your little one's dreams unfold right before your eyes. You will be amazed at all the resort has to offer for both of their ages.

    The first place to start is the Planning for Pre-School Kids and Little Ones page.  Here you will find all sorts of hints, tips and information regarding visiting the parks with children.  There aren't very many rides requiring Guests to be a certain height, but for the thrill rides that do, Guests generally need to be 40-42 inches tall. (There are a few that are a little higher as well.)  The easiest was to check which rides have requirements is to visit the "Attractions" page of the Walt Disney World website and then choose the "Height Requirement" option from the search parameters.  

    I hope these tools help you find all of the wonderful attractions you will be able to experience together.  If there is anything else I may assist you with in planning your Fairy Tale vacation, please let me know.

    Have a wonderful time discovering the adventure that is waiting for you!

    Magical Wishes,
