Am I Tall Enough?
Walt Disney World
Just what ARE the Walt Disney World height requirements?
How many times have you heard this from the kids? Mommy/Daddy am I tall enough to ride (insert their favorite ride here)?
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.
So let's look and see what the height requirements are for all the attractions at WDW.
The Walt Disney World Height Requirements
The height requirements for all the rides are below.
|Tomorrowland Speedway (to ride alone)||54||MK|

There aren't any requirements on any of the other rides.
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 All You Tall Enough To Ride...
Do you want to keep track and know when the kids are tall enough. Dad can help.
Check out Dad's Are You Tall Enough to Ride...? Chart.
This is really cool. You can keep track of the kids as they grow and as they reach those important milestones.
It's a fun way to be sure they meet the Disney World height requirements.
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.
