What Disney World Rides have Height Requirements?

Walt Disney World is such a family-friendly theme park. There are an abundance of rides that the entire family can enjoy together — even the littlest of toddlers and babies! Any attraction that does NOT have a height requirement can be ridden by children of all ages/heights.

However, there are attractions at each park that do have height requirements, you’ll want to keep these in mind for your trip.

Don’t forget that your family can take advantage of Rider Switch during your vacation! This service allows those that are big enough to experience an attraction with a height requirement while someone stays with those in the party that can’t/don’t want to ride. See all of the Rider Switch details in this post.

If you’re at the parks on your trip and you can’t remember which attractions have height requirements or what the minimum height is for a ride, you can see this information really easily in the My Disney Experience app.

Just click on the attraction name in the Wait Times list or search for the attraction within the app and the height requirement details will be listed.
