    Very excited:)Made my reservation yesterday for Jan 1-5 and can't wait! I know the rides have height requirements, but do any of them have age restrictions? DD3(almost 4 @time of trip) is 40 inches tall, and wondering about Soarin and Test Track. thank you

    Hi Connie,

    I'm excited for you!  There are no age restrictions on attractions that have specific minimum height requirements.  As the mom of two tall boys, who were "officially" big enough to ride some of the more adventurous attractions at Walt Disney World before they were actually ready to do so, I'd recommend using your judgement about what might frighten your almost four-year-old.  My guys both rode Test Track before their forth birthdays and were fine, however, my three-year-old niece was a bit too nervous.  My oldest son loved Soarin' at three, however, my little guy, who is a little afraid of heights, waited until he was five.

    If you are anxious, I suggest a "test ride" without your daughter to ensure a particular attraction is appropriate for her.

    Have a magical trip!
