Height Requirements for Disney World Rides

Magic kingdom

There is nothing more frustrating for a child than to get excited to experience a ride and not be able to because they’re not tall enough. Avoid this by setting expectations and showing the rides your child can ride on a map before you go in and really hype those rides up. Spend time talking about how great the rides are and then just casually point out the ones that they aren’t tall enough to ride yet and say that they have something to look forward to on their next visit!  To help make this easier on you, we have summarized the height requirements for each ride for all four main Disney World parks.

The rides not mentioned here are labeled as “any height.”
