    I have a 5 year old (soon to be 6 in February). We will be down there the last weekend of January. What are the height requirements for the rides in Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Natalie,

    Most of the attractions in Walt Disney World can be enjoyed by the entire family.  However, some attractions do have height restrictions.

    In the Magic Kingdom, you must be at least 32 inches to ride the Tomorrowland Speedway; guests must be at least 54 inches to drive the car.  You must be at least 35 inches to enjoy Goofy's Barnstormer.  You must be at least 40 inches to enjoy Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and Stitch's Great Escape.  Finally, you must be at least 44 inches to experience Space Mountain.

    Have a magical vacation!
