My daughter was thrilled today because she was finally 40" tall and able to go on Star Tours (she's only 4, but a huge R2D2 fan). I remembered that Buzz had the same height restriction, but when we crossed over to the ride, the height-measuring bar was gone. I KNOW it was there before, because I remember measuring her with it when she was still too short. And I know it wasn't just an issue of the bar being gone temporarily, because people were bringing babies on the ride.
Thing is, I'm sure it wasn't that long ago that the ride had a height requirement. Any CMs or savvy Chatters know? Or have I truly lost my mind?
