Current Disney World Height Requirements 2024


Some of the most commonly asked questions I receive are in regards to Disney World height requirements. How tall do you have to be to ride each ride? What do I do if I have one family member who isn’t tall enough while the rest of us want to ride? Are there any options for us? Because Disney prides itself on the family experience, there aren’t too many rides that have crazy height restrictions. And among those with restrictions, the requirements tend to be quite low (some as low as 32″) in comparison with other theme parks.

The truth about Disney is that most rides and attractions within the Disney parks truly provide an opportunity for the entire family to enjoy it together. It’s what makes Disney so special for families, and why so many take their young children year after year. With that being said, there are a few attractions you should be aware of before your trip. Here’s what you need to know about Disney World height requirements.

That being said, there is plenty to do in Walt Disney World for every age and height. Do you have a family member too short to ride? Be sure to also take a look at Disney’s Rider Switch Service to take advantage of your options. And don’t forget to check Disney’s official website for more information on current Disney World height requirements before your next vacation.
