We just got back from an, overall, great trip but what's the deal with the height requirement inconsistencies? Let me preface this by saying I am all about safety so if my children are not the correct height for a ride I do not want them riding it, but my son, who is just over 40 inches according to his latest pediatrician visit, and according to the fact that he bashed his head on the height requirement thing the first time he stepped under it, was cleared to ride Test Track and Splash Mountain at the entrance....only to be denied both times by the CMs at the very front of the line. After we had waited for the ride. After he had got his hopes up that he could ride it. And he was not the only one. We saw this happen all. the. time. Kids would clear. Kids would wait. Kids would get to the front. Denied. Kids get super upset. Parents get super angry. CMs goes on autopilot because they probably say it a million times a day: "Im sorry for the inconsistency but you cannot ride". I thought my magic band made it pretty clear that I was not Wayne Szalinski and that I had no intentions of shrinking my kids at any point during the line-waiting process, so why would they not have just made the final decision at the entrance? Or why not have an official measuring spot where they can actually measure kids correctly (ie feet against the wall, stand up straight etc) can give wristbands to kids if they meet certain height requirements so you're not putting all that pressure on the CMs at the front of the line?
