DD is 47 1/2 " if she wears her snow boots. She needs to be 48" for the Aerosmith ride.

What can I do to elongate her????? I doubt a ponytail would work. Balled-up socks in the boots?

I hate being deceptive, but we won't get back to Disney for a few years.

I wouldn't do it. They have height requirements for a reason.

If she is close enough to the sign and they can't get their hand between her head and the measure marker, they might just let her on. I saw it done a few times at different rides. It all depends on the CM at the time.

That makes me feel better. And I know if she can't, she can't. I just think it stinks to be so close and not be able to get back there for years. It's not like she's gonna fly out.

My daughter was 39.5" when we went to Disneyland and she had to be 40" for like 6 rides that we wanted to go on. It sucked so much!!!! I just always used my best judgement on whether it was safe or not and if I felt it was, I would stuff her shoes. I didn't for every single one, but some just seemed silly to me.

If she's 47.5 WITH boots, it's not gonna happen, sorry 😕. They're super strict bc it's for safety reasons. I've seen them slide paper between the kids head and the board before to see if there was a gap.

If the boots/shoes are obviously thicker than normal street shoes they have been known to ask the child to remove their shoes. Please don't risk your child's safety. If riding this one ride is so important, postpone your trip.

 What height is she without shoes on?

My daughter just barely skimmed under the bar and they didn't let her go on, after a 90 min wait. They did give us a fast pass to toy story mania. She was really disappointed, and probably would have been ok, but the employees do have to enforce the rules for patron safety. It isn't worth it if someone gets hurt.

How tall is she with sneakers on? Is she's 1/2 too short with snow boots then she's probably an inch shorter than she needs to be. The rockin roller coaster goes upside down. I wouldn't risk it for this ride....
