Almost There

I will be the first to admit - I'm not very good at keeping up a height chart for Noah.  He has a cute hanging height tracker in his closet, and we used it for the 2nd time ever yesterday.  The time before?  His birthday in December.  It was fun to see that he's grown several inches since his 1st birthday and makes me excited for his continued growth.

Of course, at 21 months, he's still too small for every single ride with a height requirement, but I know that before I know it, he'll be on Expedition Everest!

And, with that in mind, I wanted to finally post all of the height requirements for Walt Disney World!
The Barnstormer featuring the Great Goofini Magic Kingdom 35"
Kali River Rapids Animal Kingdom 38"
Splash Mountain Magic Kingdom 40"
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Magic Kingdom 40"
Stitch's Great Escape Magic Kingdom 40"
Soarin' EPCOT 40"
Test Track EPCOT 40"
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Hollywood Studios 40"

Space Mountain Magic Kingdom 44"
Mission Space EPCOT 44"
Expedition Everest Animal Kingdom 44"
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Hollywood Studios 48"
Primeval Whirl Animal Kingdom 48"
Tomorrowland Speedway** Magic Kingdom 52"

**Tomorrowland Speedway Height Requirement for solo ride only

All rides with height requirement should participate in the Rider Swap option.  Ask a cast member to double check, but we've never had a problem using Rider Swap even with fastpasses. 

Headed to the Water Parks?

Blizzard Beach Chair Lift 32"
Blizzard Beach T-Bar Under 48"
Blizzard Beach Tike's Peak Under 48"
Blizzard Beach Cross Country CreekUnder 48"
Typhoon Lagoon Ketchakiddee Creek Under 48"
Typhoon Lagoon Keelhaul Falls Under 48"
Typhoon Lagoon Mayday Falls Under 48"
Blizzard Beach Summit Plummet 48"
Blizzard Beach Slush Gusher 48"
Blizzard Beach Downhill Double Dipper 48"
Typhoon LagoonCrush n' Gusher48"
Typhoon Lagoon Humunga Kowabunga 48"

I've never experienced the Water Parks, so I listed them by park as opposed by ride.  For me, it makes it easier to see which park has more attractions per height!

    How tall is Noah? When my daugher was 2 and had finally hit 36", she was tall enough for the Matterhorn roller coaster at Disneyland. It's really a big kid ride and I still can't believe she went on it. But she loved it, primarily because of the Abominable Snowman (she's not a princess type of girl :-) ) He'll hit the height requirement soon and you'll have so much fun riding all those attractions with him!

  2. Our boys are so close in age, it's a shame we can't get them together!!

  3. Still too short. But we are couting the inches until Soarin'!

  4. That's so exciting! It will be so cool when he gets to experience his first thrill ride/Disney Ride!

  5. Because we love the rides so much we are ALWAYS measuring our kids. The two older kids can get on it and as of this year Lucas is 40 inches which allows is much more flexibility. I swear my husband measured daily until he made it...lol.
