Tuesday's Travel Tip: Child Height Requirements for Rides and Attractions


   When planning your trip to Walt Disney World you may want to check the current height requirements for certain rides and attractions. Nothing would be worse than having your child anticipating a ride for months, only to find out they don't meet the child height requirement once you arrive at the line. :(

    So here's a tip to help you plan. The first thing you will need to do is measure your child's height. Then follow the steps below:

    Disneyworld.com has a great search feature to find the rides and attractions your child qualifies for. Simply go to http://www.disneyworld.com/, then hover your mouse over the "Things To Do" tab to highlight it (don't click on it), a menu will appear below and now you will click on the "Attractions" link.

   This link will take you to a page with the listing of all WDW rides and attractions. On the left you will see "Narrow Your Search" options. Scroll down and expand the "Height" box. Now just check off the box that matches your child's current height. The rides/attractions list will now reload with ones that your child can ride. Isn't that fantastic?! No more guessing! (You can also narrow this list by location and recommended ages by checking the appropriate boxes on the left.)

  Here is a link that will take you directly to that page: WDW Attractions

  Happy Planning!!
