Disney World Ride Height Restrictions - Orlando Discount Vacation Resorts

All the Disney World parks employ height restrictions on some of their rides for safety reasons. It's a good idea to measure your child's height before you go so that you know what exactly they can and can't ride. Our Walt Wisney World Page has all Disney Information.

Walt Disney World height restrictions are strictly enforced so there is no point complaining with Disney emplyees, they jwill not let a child ride if they do not meet the minimum height requirement. PrintableHeight Requirements

A guest's ability to participate in aWalt Disney World ride is completely based on height. Most attractions have what's known as a "child swap" option. This enables parents with children who can't ride a particular attraction due to height restrictions, age limits, or personal choice to ride just the same. To switch off, there must be 2 adults. It's also important to keep in mind that although some rides do not have height and age restrictions they may still be a little frightening.

Disney World Height Requirements and Restrictions

Understandably, Disney needs to protect its visitors to the Walt Disney World theme parks. One of the ways it does this is by implementing a minimum height restriction for some of it’s attractions. Height restrictions are strictly adhered to at all the parks.
