    My 5 year old is really wanting to ride Expedition Everest and Space Mountain when we go to Disney this year. She's barely over 43" tall, which means with tennis shoes on it puts her over the 44" height requirement. Will she be able to ride?

    Hi Jennifer!

    If your daughter is at or over the height requirement, then she'll be able to ride.  Measurements are taken with their shoes on, so if your daughter is 44 inches (or taller) with her shoes on, she'll be permitted to ride. 

    I hope she enjoys it!  My oldest son was tall enough to ride the 44 inch height requirement rides last year, but wasn't too sure about it.  He claims to be 'going for it' this year.  I can't wait to ride with him!

    Have a magical vacation!
