    That's what I thought too and so I went both measurement poles (one at the ride entrance and on at the fastpass entrance) with the same cast member and they both were off.

    Re: Height Requirements

    Each ride that has a height requirement usually has several different spots in which the heights are check. So don't be surprised if CMs keep asking to check your child's height.

    Re: Height Requirements

    So reading over this thread I see a possible solution.

    Bring a tape measure to the park. I'm dead serious. Go up to the pole, run your tape measure to the ground and prove/disprove the accuracy of their pole.

    I understand and respect the need for regulations and park safety, in fact my motto has always been "Safety third!" but in a case like this I'd bring a tape measure.

    Re: Height Requirements

    If he's 35.5 without shoes, he'll be over 36 with shoes (assuming he's wearing sneaker, not flip flops). I know my friend took their daughter and she wore her snow boots to help her meet height requirements... lol!

    Haha

    I wonder if, after reading all of the responses here, a minimum AGE requirement is in order, rather than minimum height? Even if a child is big for their age, their muscle and bone structure is not as developed as a older, yet smaller child. I wonder if a short 4-yr-old is is actually safer on certain rides than a tall 2 or 3-yr-old. This rule applies to car seats in my part of the world. Once a child is a certain size combined with a minimum age of 4 they can move from a 5-pt-harness to a booster seat. They can not move to a booster, even if they're big enough, until they are at least 4 due to underdeveloped bone structure, resulting in more serious injury in case of a collision.

    How about free admission 3 and under,and after that you're allowed on certain rides based on age/size, rather than just height? If it is truly safety first, then there are many more things to consider!

    Re: Height Requirements

    When I was little I was just under the bar by a little bit and the cast member wouldn't let me ride Indy, so my parents bought me cowboy boots in Frontierland and waited till the cast members switch shifts and the next time i tried I was let on the ride and they didn't even check my hight.

    I don't think parents think about this. They think "Oh, Johnny is finally tall enough so we can ride again" and off they go. My granddaughter is tall for her age. I think she will hit 40" around to her third birthday. But, I doubt we will put her on most 40" rides until she is much older. It may be safe, but she won't be ready.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.
