Height Requirements at Disney World

Walt Disney World has many different ride types. There are slow rides in the dark, water rides, roller coasters, spinning rides, and rides that drop you from the 13th floor. In my experience it is good to know what rides your kiddo’s will be tall enough for so as to set their expectations. As we speak, I have a 4 year old who has eaten more vegetables than ever before in his life because he is hoping to get on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster next trip. He may be disappointed if he isn’t tall enough once we arrive, but we have had the discussion about the reasons for the requirements and safety.

Take a peek at the Height Requirements below so you can prep your littles!
