Disney World Ride Height Requirements

 

There’s nothing worse than getting your child excited about an attraction, only to find out they aren’t tall enough to ride! After dealing with some little rider disappointment on one of our trips, I decided to simplify the search by creating an easy reference that won’t drain your phone battery!

Below, you’ll find attractions sorted two ways. First, by height and then, by park. You can also download our free printable (Disney World Attractions Height Requirements) to keep with you in the parks!

Almost all of these attractions have Rider Switch available. Don’t forget to take advantage of that! Read more about Rider Switch and making the most of it here.

We do our best to keep this list updated, but please always double check your My Disney Experience app when planning your vacation!
