Disney World has something for everyone, but everyone can't ride everything. Some thrills and chills are reserved for the taller set, and a few even have maximum height requirements. It's helpful to measure everyone in your party before visiting, but it's not essential. Every Disney attraction with a height requirement has a measuring station at the entrance.
Minimum Height Requirements
Disney World attractions have varying height requirements. While Tomorrowland Speedway in the Magic Kingdom requires riders only have a minimum height of 32 inches, riders on Hollywood Studio's Rock 'n' Roller Coaster must stand at 48 inches or taller. Other height-restricted rides have requirements that fall between 32 and 48 inches. Crowd-pleasers including the Magic Kingdom's Pirates of the Caribbean and Animal Kingdom's Kilimanjaro Safari have no height restrictions.
Maximum Height Requirements
None of the attractions at Disney World's four main theme parks has a maximum height requirement. However, the Bay Slides and Ketchakiddee Creek at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Tike's Peak at Blizzard Beach Water Park restrict visitors over certain heights. Riders must be 60 inches or shorter to experience the Bay Slides; the other two require riders to be 48 inches or shorter.
