Height Requirements

There are certain rides that have height requirements.  Most are either 40″ or 44″ with some being 48″.  Please take the time to decide beforehand what rides may or may not be suitable for your child/children.  Just because your child may be 44″ does not mean he/she will automatically be comfortable on a ride.  My then, 5 year old son went on Space Mountain and had no problem with it.  The darkness and speed didn’t bother him. Now, a year later, he doesn’t want to go on it because of the same things!  Pirates of the Caribbean was another issue.  As we walked in, he froze and flat out refused to go on it.  My sister ended up not riding it because she volunteered to stay with him. (it was the last ride of the night)  You know your child better than anyone else! Listen to your instincts.  Disney has special exits that you can use if this happens!
