    My 15 year old son is 6'5" (and growing). Are there any attractions to watch out for in terms of head or legroom? Do any value or moderate resorts offer a bit more space than the others? I'm hoping he can stretch out after a long day.

    Hi Kate,
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm also a Mama to a very tall boy but he hasn't quite reached 6'5" yet! Some of the attractions are tight on leg room, especially the thrill rides but I honestly think he should be able to squeeze in and be ok. I wouldn't worry too much about head room but he may be short on leg room for the duration of the ride.

    I would honestly suggest staying in a moderate resort; most of the value resorts have double beds for accommodations, while several of the moderates have queen sized beds in at least some of the rooms. I recently had my first stay at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and it was quite lovely! Disney's Port Orleans Resorts (both French Quarter and Riverside) have rooms with queen beds available.

    Kate, I hope this helps you out! Happy planning!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
