Walt Disney World 101: A Guide for the OverwhelmedWDW Blog

List of Height Requirements at Walt Disney World

Share
Children are measured outside of rides where there is a height requirement

Although I do have this information in other places, I thought that it might be helpful to have a list of all of the height requirements at Walt Disney World in one place. Remember that these are taken seriously, a child could be measured several times before being allowed to get on the ride. Keep this list handy, and then either use Rider Switch (ask a Cast Member at the ride’s entrance) or avoid the ride all together. You can also download a PDF of the list here.
