Walt Disney World is meant to be enjoyed by families, and that means a variety of rides that everyone, from the smallest mouse to the wisest owl, can enjoy.
However, there are a few rides with a little more thrill and a little less chill at all four of the Disney Parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios). These rides will employ height requirements.
Height requirements will vary by attraction, and are strictly enforced for safety reasons. Children will be measured by a cast member at the entrance for an attraction. Measure your child before you leave for vacation, so you (and they!) know which rides they can appreciate now and which ones they may have to wait until the next trip to enjoy.
Epcot’s attraction roster may be small but it is mighty. Years after opening, Frozen Ever After is still one of the hardest FastPasses to score, with lines regularly reaching over an hour at peak times. Soarin’ is one of the most innovative attractions in all the parks and Journey into the Imagination with Figment is an absolute classic.
Many kid-friendly options here, like the Seas with Nemo and Friends, while there are also some great attractions for the older, more daring set, like Test Track. Expect loads of new attractions at Epcot by 2022, the park’s 40th anniversary. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, the Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster, the Beauty and the Beast Sing along show, the play pavilion to be housed in the Wonders of Life building, and the new Awesome Planet Film moving into the Circle of Life Theater promise magical new experiences for guests of all heights to enjoy.
