    We had to let our Annual Passes expire until our youngest child was tall enought to enjoy the same attractions as the eldest. What are the min. height requirements for the various attractions that have one, in Disneyland and California Advenure parks?

    Hi, Jennifer!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. With so many new and exciting additions, you’re sure to find plenty of attractions and entertainment your family can all enjoy together at the Disneyland Resort!

    There are many attractions Guests of all ages can experience, from Dumbo the Flying Elephant, to Pirates of the Caribbean, to Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. If there’s no minimum height requirement posted at an attraction, your child can definitely ride it. The whole family can also ride Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Monsters Inc. Mike & Sully to the Rescue! and The Little Mermaid - Ariel's Undersea Adventure at Disney California Adventure Park, just to name a few.

    When we visited Cars Land for the first time, my son met the minimum height requirement of 32 inches for Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, and he was so excited to go on his first “big boy ride!” Other attractions with a 32-inch requirement are Autopia and Luigi’s Flying Tires. Children who are 35 inches and taller may ride Gadget’s Go Coaster. After your child reaches 40 inches, he or she can ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Jumpin’ Jellyfish, Radiator Springs Racers, Silly Symphony Swings, Soarin’ Over California, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Star Tours—The Adventures Continue, and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. There are other attractions with minimum height requirements of 42, 46 and 48 inches. Check out the interactive attractions list online to see exactly what your child is already tall enough ride. You can sort the list by height requirement, thrill level and age interest to help simplify your planning. 

    I hope this helps, Jennifer, and that you have a pixie-dusted visit to the Disneyland Resort soon! Please write back with more questions as you continue to plan.

    Wishing you magic,
