Walt Disney World Height Requirements

Just what ARE the Walt Disney World height requirements? Regardless of your kids’ ages, height requirements are a big deal. Every time we go to Walt Disney World, we see parents consoling their kids because they can’t quite reach the measurement. Or the parents try to cajole the Cast Member into letting the kid in.

So let’s look and see what the height requirements are for all the attractions at WDW.

Disney Will Measure to Confirm Guests’ Heights

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.
