Ride Height Requirements at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Theme Parks

Ride Height Requirements at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Theme Parks

So often I find myself Googling how tall Beckham has to be to ride certain rides at Disneyland. I CAN’T WAIT to take him on Big Thunder Mountain and the Matterhorn! He has this fascination with Splash Mountain (soon to be Tiana’s) and I just can’t wait to experience all these fun things with him. With him being so excited to ride all the big rides, we’ve been able to use it as a bargaining chip to get him to eat his fruits and veggies. I got him to eat a plateful of carrots because it would help his eyes see all the cool things in the rides. He also ate all of his dinners so he would grow tall enough to ride on Splash Mountain! I’d definitely call that a parenting win. 

I compiled a list of all the height requirements for an easy reference for anyone in a similar situation. All this info is available on the Disneyland App but I have it all organized for you here in one easy post!
