Walt Disney World Attractions Height Requirements

| | |

While most attractions and rides are available to Guests of all heights, some experiences at Walt Disney World theme parks do have minimum height requirements. 

You don’t have to miss out just because someone in your party isn’t quite tall enough for your favorite ride or attraction. Everyone else can still ride using the Rider Switch pass. This allows your party to split into 2 groups – the first group rides while the second hangs back, then you switch, allowing the second group to ride.
