This is a big deal. Every time we go to Walt Disney World we see parents consoling their kids because they can’t quite reach the line. Or the parents try to cajole the Cast Member into letting the kid in.

Disney Will Measure

Disney takes these measurements very seriously. Each of the attractions with a height requirement will have a measuring device right at the entrance. Everyone that comes close will be checked.


If you aren’t tall enough, you don’t get to ride. It’s that simple. No tippy toes, no cheating (no, they won’t actually check shoes to see if you have lifts.)


The height requirements are a safety thing. It’s important to follow them.

Dad’s Bottom Line

Are your kids tall enough to ride? That’s an age old question. It can be really upsetting to arrive at an attraction and the little one isn’t tall enough.


You can avoid that by knowing what the minimums are and keeping track with Dad’s Are You Tall Enough to Ride…? It’s really, really cool.
