Walt Disney World Ride Heights and Safety Information

Several attractions at Walt Disney World are restricted to persons of a set height. Other attractions issue cautions. Be sure to read the signs, and don’t be timid about asking Cast Members questions.

Slinky Dog Dash Height Measurement

AllEars Tip: Know how tall your child is (or children are) before your trip, and review the required ride heights before you leave home. If your child isn’t tall enough for a certain attraction, you can address it ahead of time in order to avoid disappointment. Try to find a nearby attraction or distraction for your not-quite-tall-enough kiddo, and read up on Rider Swap, too! (It doesn’t hurt to assuage the too-short sadness with a Mickey Ice Cream bar either!)

Each child is different, what may scare yours may not bother the next person’s. I have been on Tower of Terror with a six year old who thought it was great and been on Dinosaur with an eleven year old who was very scared! If you are unsure, ask the Cast Member at the entrance. If your child decides he or she needs the so-called “chicken exit” (an exit within the ride queue that allows you to exit the attraction instead of riding it), ask a Cast Member for help.
