    I have a 3 year old who is 36" tall as well as an older child. Is there any water flume/rapids type ride that we could ride as a family? They saw them in the video and were excited to try something like that.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Water rides are a great way to cool off in the parks.  

    Splash Mountain at the Magic Kingdom park is a very popular flume ride.  However, it has a height requirement of 40" so I'm afraid your little is not quite tall enough to take the 52 1/2 foot drop just yet.

    Kali River Rapids at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park is an adventurous river raft ride but has a minimum height requirement of 38" inches.  So close but I'm afraid your 3 year old isn't quite tall enough for this one either.

    If you have time in your schedule, you could head over to one of the two water parks at Disney World:
    Disney's Blizzard Beach or Disney's Typhoon Lagoon.  Both of these water parks offer some attractions for every height requirement and fun for the whole family. 

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
