If you’re wondering what rides your little ones can and can’t ride, well I’ve created a list for you to reference for both parks. I put them in order of height required to ride the attraction.

The magic number is 48 inches tall. Once your child reaches this height they can ride EVERYTHING! So if you don’t see a ride listed then anyone can ride on that attraction. Over on this post I listed all the rides that have NO height requirement.
Oh I remember the days when my kids wore shoes with thick soles, thick socks, put on a hat and prayed they would be tall enough! Just know these requirements are for their safety. The cast members will not allow your child on a ride if they don’t make the cut. Don’t beg and plead with them, they are just doing their job.
You can also find the height requirements for attractions in the Disneyland app. Search under attractions and each ride will list requirements as needed. And for a list you can use the filter button in the top left hand corner and choose the height button to narrow your search.
