At­trac­tion Heights at WDW

WDW Magazine - - Contents - BY MIKE BEYER

HOORAY! You fi­nally booked your Walt Dis­ney World Va­ca­tion! The kids are go­ing to be so ex­cited!

The Re­sort is all set, the Ad­vance Din­ing Reser­va­tions are made—pretty soon it will be time to make your Fast­pass+ se­lec­tions. Hold on a second… Lit­tle Billy or Sally may be too short to ride Ex­pe­di­tion Ever­est? What? There are height re­quire­ments for rides?

The an­swer to that ques­tion is YES. Dis­ney has height re­quire­ments for many rides. The main rea­son for this is sim­ply safety. Dis­ney does not want any­one to get hurt while on a ride or at­trac­tion. Guest safety is of ut­most im­por­tance, so Cast Mem­bers take the height re­quire­ments very se­ri­ously.

Many of the rides at WDW are thrill rides. There can be a lot of turns, twists, bumps, or drops on at­trac­tions. Ob­vi­ously, you ex­pect that on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster or Space Moun­tain, but a ride like Soarin’, even though you don’t get bumped around, can still pose safety is­sues for a child who isn’t tall enough due to the height that the ride is taken to and the per­ceived motion.

If you are un­sure if the kids will be tall enough for a par­tic­u­lar ride, you can look in the “At­trac­tions” sec­tion of your My Dis­ney Ex­pe­ri­ence App. Sim­ply se­lect the at­trac­tion you are in­ter­ested in, and you can see what the height re­quire­ment is. There are also many lists on­line to see the ex­act heights re­quired. See more at: www.dads­guidetowdw.com
