You Must Be This Tall to Ride...Disneyland Resort Edition

As a kid, there is nothing more exciting than finally being tall enough to ride the rollercoasters at Disneyland! It's a right of passage to finally be tall enough to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain, and the Matterhorn Bobsleds. 

Walt Disney designed Disneyland as a place for the whole family to have fun together but that doesn't mean that there aren't a few attractions that are meant for older (or taller) guests. Some attractions have specific height requirements for guests, meaning they must be at least the minimum height listed or they may not ride the attraction. 

If you're traveling with little ones, it's important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions everyone can and can't ride, based on their height. 

Disneyland Park

  • 32 inches - Autopia (52 inches to ride alone)
  • 35 inches - Gadget's Go Coaster
  • 38 inches - Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
  • 40 inches - Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • 40 inches - Space Mountain
  • 40 inches - Splash Mountain
  • 40 inches - Star Tours - The Adventures Continue
  • 40 inches - Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance
  • 42 inches - Matterhorn Bobsleds
  • 46 inches - Indiana Jones Adventure
You'll find height requirements posted outside each attraction and signage with additional warnings. 

Disney California Adventure

  • 32 inches - Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters
  • 32 inches - Mater's Junkyard Jamboree
  • 40 inches - Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!
  • 40 inches - Jumpin' Jellyfish
  • 40 inches - Radiator Springs Racers
  • 40 inches - Silly Symphony Swings
  • 40 inches - Soarin' Around the World
  • 42 inches - Goofy's Sky School
  • 42 inches - Grizzly River Run
  • 48 inches - Incredicoaster
All other attractions at the Disneyland Resort are available to guests at any height. Remember, even though your child may be tall enough to ride, the ride might still be too intense or scary for their comfort level.

Do you measure your children based on if they're tall enough to ride a certain attraction at Disneyland? Do you have a fond memory of finally being tall enough to ride an attraction? Let us know in the comments.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Our Top Table Service Dining Choices at Universal CityWalk

Universal's CityWalk is a dining, shopping and entertainment area with so many options.  Where to begin?  The Kingdom Konsultant agents have been busy trying the options for you to help give you an idea of what to expect and maybe narrow some things down.  All of these restaurants are quite popular and reservations are recommended.  3. Bigfire Bigfire is going to be your more upscale/fine dining option at Universal CityWalk.  The d├ęcor is modern and features an open kitchen, the bar serves up craft cocktails and the menu features wood-fired dishes.  All of the food we tried here was delicious and the prices felt reasonable for the quality of food we tried.  If you want a nicer meal, definitely check out Bigfire (but if you show up in theme park clothes, you will be just fine too!). For more details,  click here.   2. The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar This is simply one of my favorite places to eat.  Burgers please the pickiest eaters while sushi fans will rejoice at the selection.  For

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee
