I am so excited,i measured my dd (5yrs) today,and she is just over the 44inch tall "guide" (without shoes) for the bigger rides! She loves the big fast rides, fantasyland is just not cutting it anymore.. This is our 3rd yr going, and she was just shy last yr, about 2 inches i think.. which means she is growing fast! LOL but, I would like to see another inch on her, before november, just to be safe!! I am so excited for her, she was dying to get on Space Mt. and now Ex.Everest!
