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.
With seven attractions that have height requirements, Hollywood Studios leads the pack with thrills rides. If you’re got teens or adrenaline seekers, this is the park for them. The brand new Slinky Dog Dash, the legendary drops of the Tower of Terror, and the infamous twists and turns of Rock’n’Roller Coaster make this the ideal park for coaster lovers. In 2019, Hollywood Studios opens Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and with it, new attractions perfect for those who love adventure.
But Hollywood Studios is unique, because not only does it cater to the older crowd, it caters to the younger crowd as well. This is the only place on Disney property where your littles can get some face time with their favorite Disney Jr characters: at meals, meet and greets, and the awesomely interactive Disney Junior Dance Party! Hollywood Studios also boasts the most shows with Muppet Vision 3D, the Frozen Sing Along, Beauty and the Beast live, the Little Mermaid live, AND the new Lightening McQueen’s Racing Academy. A perfect park if you’re looking for big rides and big smiles.
