Ride Restrictions (Height and Safety)

 

Walt Disney World Height Requirements -  I rounded up height requirements from the most popular attractions in all four theme parks and put them into handy charts to help you plan ahead.

Certain attractions are restricted to a set height requirement. Other attractions issue cautions.  Be sure to read the signs and don’t be timid about asking Cast Members questions.

Each child is different, what may scare yours may not bother the next person’s.  If you are unsure, ask the Cast Member at the entrance. Reminder: there is a Rider Switch (aka Child Swap) option available to you at the attractions!

PLEASE – Try to know what you and your child are able to ride/experience before you go to avoid disappointment. Please do not take your screaming scared child on rides they do not wish to go on (yes, I see this every trip!).
