Disney World Ride Height Restrictions

Listed in alphabetical order by park. You can also see if the attraction participates in the rider switch facility

Magic Kingdom

Family-friendly for the most part

Magic Kingdom is built for families but there are a few attractions that have a minimum rider height for safety.

If an attractions says it is family friendly, chances are that everyone will be able to ride but that may be subject to certain conditions Check with an attraction entrance cast member for specifics.

A lot of attractions that have height restrictions have a “child swap” facility so nobody needs to miss out.  I will have a separate page that details how you can use child swap in the not too distant future.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Star Wars, Toy Story and more, oh my!

Often labelled Disney’s most mature park, the introduction of Toy Story Land and Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction is a promising move in a family-friendly territory.

One thing that Hollywood Studios excels at is shows. There are shows here for everybody and most, but not all, are indoors with air conditioning!

Blizzard Beach

The water thrill capital of Disney World.

After the success of Typhoon Lagoon Blizzard beach opened with added thrills in a melting ski resort setting, because, well, why not!

There may be more slides to choose from here but the pace feels a little more frenetic than Typhoon Lagoon.If you have young children I would advise you to try Typhoon Lagoon first.
