When they measure at Disneyland, kids have to put their hands at rhier sides.

My DD has a pair of nikes with the shocks on the heels which add about an inch or so to the shoe not including the sole itself - total they add about 1.5" of height.

I'm wondering how many people have actually SEEN (not just heard of) CM's asking children to remove their shoes when being measured?

I have as well, probably a good choice to leave them at home. Have fun on your trip!

With and inch to go she won't be riding. Prepare her now, don't set her up for dissapointment. My son is small for his age and it's just part of the deal. it's made each and every ride at Disney be a special rite of passage.

In the end, we never bother with IJ. We didnt want to disappoint anyone. On CS, she was too short so I stayed with her and did the swings and TS, but I never did get my chance to ride CS. The family rode it again on a different day, so again I stayed with DD. The family didn't mean to leave me out, they just didn't think of MOM in all their excitement. From that point, I just kind of encouraged skipping any rides that DD was too short. It worked well, no one even complained or suggested different. But mom is bummed to have missed out on CS eh well.

Sounds like you had a good approach to make sure no kids walked away disappointed. I'm sad, however, to hear that YOU walked away a little disappointed. The "big kids" need their fun too. Sounds to me like another trip is needed --- and soon!

Hope you had a good trip overall.

Don't they have the rider swap at DLR? WDW has a ride swap that works like a FP. When your family goes to the entrance, you get the ride swap ticket and wait for your family to get out so then you can get in... and you can take 2 other people with you.

I like the way Universal in Florida works. Your whole family gets on the line, then when you're about to ride you and your little one/s go into a separate room that sometimes even has a TV for you to watch while you wait. Then when your family gets off the ride, you get on immediately. It's an amazing system that Disney should adapt.

When my son was 5, he was tall enough to go on Indy, but he refused and there was NO LINE!!! The ride had just opened a few months before. Since it was just he and I at the park, I told him that if he rode with me, I would buy him a wooden rifle when we got out. He reluctantly went in; when we came out he wanted to go AGAIN!!! I still bought him the rifle.

If your kids are just under he height limits of some of the popular rides, the CMs will give you a front of the line pass (good for the child and 5 others) when they come back and are tall enough. I have front of the line passes for Star Tours, the Matterhorn, Indiana Jones, and Soarin'.

The ideas that the Op has suggested sound a bit dangerous. There is safety rules for a reason.

Have you heard of Rider Swap?

They do exist, but they are given at the CM's discretion. There have been plenty of times we haven't gotten them, but DS has gotten them twice, for Jumpin' Jellyfish and more recently for Goofy's Sky School. One of my daughters got one for Star Tours. Here is the one for GSS. They stamp them once you redeem it, but we've been allowed to keep it for a souvenir.
