It’s for your own safety, really.

It can be heartbreaking when a child is looking forward to a certain attraction, only to arrive and find that he/she is not tall enough to ride.  Here below is a list of height requirements for the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks so that you can set the right expectations before you go.  The height requirements are strictly enforced and this is for your child’s safety.  The great thing is that the height is measured with shoes on.
