8. Height Restrictions
A great cause of upset for kids, parents, and cast members are ride height restrictions. Be sure to check your child’s height BEFORE you wait 120 minutes in line for Space Mountain! Height restriction information is readily available on the WDW website and the My Disney Experience app, as well as on signs at the ride entrance. If you are unsure if someone is tall enough, check with the cast member at the front entrance of the ride. They should have a height guide and can ensure that everyone in your party is tall enough. Remember that ride height restrictions are about safety; the ride’s restraint system might not work properly if riders are not tall enough. Trying to cheat the system puts your child in danger, so just don’t do it! Also, if a cast member says that your child is too short to ride, please don’t argue. Yes, it’s disappointing, but you are arguing against safety and you aren’t going to win (and it doesn’t set a good example for your kids!).
