Hey mduvall,
I went to DisneyWorld recently with my family, and my sister has a three
yr old son. I've been to both parks, and most of the rides are pretty
similar. Indiana Jones is the only ride she won't be able to get on,
the minimum height is 46 inches, but I have my map right here with me,
and it says that the minimum height requirement for space mountain,
splash mountain, BTMRR, and Star Tours are 40 inches. And the
matterhorn's is 35 inches. My sister was a little uncomfortable bringing
the little guy on, so we did the baby swap thing. But you could
always take her through the queue area, and when you get to the front
and you or her get uncomfortable, you could always do the baby swap
thing. The great thing about Disneyland as opposed to say Six Flags
is that most of the rides are geared towards the whole family, so you
shouldn't have any problem taking her on most of the rides.

DCA on the other hand, is more like a six flags park. California Screamin-
48", Maliboomer-52", Mulholland Madness-42", Orange Stinger-48",
Grizzly River run-42", Soarin' Over Cali-42", In fact, I think the only thing
you could take her in besides the shows are the Golden Zephyr, Jumpin
Jellyfish, Carousel, and the Sun Wheel. I think this is one of the reasons
why a lot of family's around Southern California are staying away from
the park. Magic Mountain and Knotts Berry Farm offers the same thing,
and 5 to 10 times as many rides and at sometimes half the price.

Still, with that said, there are some neat things to look at if your an
adult, and during October the weather is very nice, and the crowds
are fairly small, particularly near the middle and the end of the month.
