    Height Requirements

    Next Thanksgiving (07) I will be taking my youngest two children for their first trip to WDW. They will be 5 and 6. Does anyone know what types of Height Requirments me might run into where they couldn't ride? Does anyone know what the highest minimum height requirement is?

    Or where can I find out this information?

    Thanks for the information!

    GREAT!!! Didn't think about looking at the Magical Beginning information!

    Okay so they at least need to be 48-52 inches. I will have to measure them and see how much more food I need to give them to ensure this isn't a problem... hehehe. Thanks a bunch!

    That would have been a good idea--I'm not thinking straight this morning! Please forgive me! Is there anything else beside height i need to be worried about when taking them?

    I know this sounds strange, but if you have a boarder-line guest for a height requirement, take them on the questionable rides early in the morning. Your spine compresses after a day of walking, and you can find yourself being a bit shorter later in the day. This happened to my cousin's son. He rode a roller coaster early in the morning, meeting the height requirement, and when they went back late in the day for a final ride...the child was too short.
