At Disney World there’s usually something to do for everyone, whether you’re into thrill rides, calm rides, watching a show, or eating every snack.
Disney World offers quite a few rides with no height requirements, meaning people of all heights and ages (even babies!) can visit these attractions. If you ever wanted an extensive list of every no height limit attraction at Disney, we’ve got you covered.
Magic Kingdom is the park that has by far the most rides and attractions with no height requirements. Let’s sort this out by land.
If you want to visit the area of Magic Kingdom with the most accessible by height rides, Fantasyland is your spot. Dumbo the Flying Elephant lets you fly in the sky as Dumbo above Storybook Circus. With the play area now reopened, Dumbo even provides a fun distraction for kids (and adults) waiting in line.
The Mad Tea Party is an iconic Disney World ride in which you get to listen to music from Alice in Wonderland and spin around and around (the spinning is up to you!) in your own human-sized teacup.
Under the Sea – Journey of The Little Mermaid allows you to relive scenes from the movie The Little Mermaid, both under the sea and on land. And you don’t even have to get wet!
Travel through Hundred Acre Wood and don’t let the Heffalumps and Woozles steal your honey in The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
Another iconic Disney ride is the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel. Inspired by Cinderella, you can spin around on a horse of your choice while listening to your favorite Disney songs.
Mickey’s PhilharMagic is a 12-minute long 3D show with many favorite Disney characters such as Mickey and Donald.
Peter Pan’s Flight often has one of the longest waits of any of these rides. Ride in a pirate ship over London and Neverland and enjoy scenes from Peter Pan.
And last, but not least for Fantasyland is “it’s a small world,” the boat ride with the repetitive song people seem to either love or hate.
After our trip to Fantasyland, let’s take a quick detour to Liberty Square, where there are only three attractions with no height requirements.
Experience 999 happy haunts in the Haunted Mansion, where you will be escorted by your ghost host in a mansion filled with ghosts and ghouls.
The Liberty Square Riverboat takes you on the Liberty Belle for a ride along the Rivers of America, along with scenes of America from over 100 years ago.
The Hall of Presidents is a 25-minute show covering the history of America’s leaders, along with Animatronic Presidents.
Now that we’ve covered Liberty Square, it’s time to make our way to Adventureland!
In Adventureland, we start out with the Swiss Family Treehouse, which allows people to explore a huge treehouse inspired by the movie Swiss Family Robinson. At the top, you get a great view of Adventureland and the Jungle Cruise River!
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin are similar to Dumbo, but with this theme, you get to ride on a magic carpet and overlook all of Adventureland!
In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room…or as it’s better known, Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, enjoy a 10-minute show featuring singing tropical birds, beautiful flowers, and Tiki gods.
The Country Bear Jamboree is an 18-minute show in Grizzly Hall with 18 singing bears. As it is one of the last attractions Walt Disney himself helped originate, it is an important part of Magic Kingdom.
The Jungle Cruise takes you on a 10-minute ride along the Amazon River, the shores of the African Congo, the Nile River, and the Mekong River. Your guide may have some clever observations to note along the way.
Voyage past Dead Man’s Cove on Pirates of the Caribbean, and try to spot Jack Sparrow along the way!
Now that we’ve finished exploring Adventureland, let’s check out Frontierland!
The only attraction with no height requirement in Frontierland is Tom Sawyer Island. Inspired by Mark Twain’s stories, a raft takes you across the Rivers of America to Tom’s Landing to explore the entire island however you like. When you’re ready to leave, another raft brings you back to shore.
Now let’s jump to the future for Tomorrowland!
In Tomorrowland, you can defeat Zurg with your very own laser on Buzz Lightyear’s Ranger Spin!
The Astro Orbiter spins you WAY above Tomorrowland in your own spaceship surrounded by planets.
The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover may be on the more relaxing side of the ride spectrum. The PeopleMover is a 10-minute long ride tour of Tomorrowland, giving you a great view of Cinderella Castle and Space Mountain.
Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress takes you through 4 generations of progress throughout the 20th century. It is also the longest ride in all of Disney World, coming in at 20 minutes and 45 seconds!
And lastly for Magic Kingdom is the Walt Disney World Railroad, which takes you for a tour of Magic Kingdom and has stations on Main Street, in Fantasyland, and Frontierland. If you complete the full tour, it takes 20 minutes!
And that’s it for Magic Kingdom! Should we make our way to EPCOT?
EPCOT is filled with quite a bit to do in addition to rides (like eat), but here’s a list of attractions with no height requirements!
Let’s start out with Spaceship Earth, which takes you from the Stone Age to modern-day, all while listening to Dame Judi Dench’s voice.
The Seas with Nemo & Friends is based on Disney and Pixar’s Finding Nemo and, well, you guessed it, you have to find Nemo! After the ride, you can walk around to explore the Coral Reefs, fish, sea turtles, sharks, rays, and even manatees!
Living with the Land is a calm boat ride that gives you an inner look at how Disney grows their own crops! You will also see fruits and veggies from all over the world.
Journey Into Imagination With Figment lets you meet Figment, a mischievous purple dragon, who interferes with your tour of the Imagination Institute. After the ride, the “What If” Labs are an interactive play area for anyone who’s a little curious about imagination.
The Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival explores 3 different films in 4D for an 18-minute show.
That’s all for Future World, so now let’s explore the World Showcase.
In the World Showcase, there is no shortage of exhibits to explore in each country. There are also some short films that allow you to explore the countries on screen. Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360 is a 12-minute presentation of Canada.
In the France Pavilion, you can sing along at the Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along for a 15-minute film featuring songs from the animated movie Beauty and the Beast.
Impressions de France is another attraction in the France Pavilion, an 18-minute film all about France.
All the way at the American Pavilion, you can watch The American Adventure, a 30-minute show about America’s past.
At the China Pavilion, you can view Reflections of China, a 14-minute Circle-Vision 360 film about ancient and modern China.
In the Norway Pavilion, we can explore the snowy land of Arendelle with Elsa, Anna, Olaf, and Sven in Frozen Ever After.
And at our last stop in EPCOT, the Mexico Pavilion brings us to the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros, a gentle boat ride through Mexico featuring Donald, Panchito, and Jose.
It’s time for Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Let’s take the Disney Skyliner there.

And that’s all there is for Hollywood Studios! It’s finally time for Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
