I'm getting nervous. She's at 39.5 with shoes on and our trip is in June...I'm honestly thinking of pushing back till next year. A lot of the 40 inch rides she'd love.BTMRR, Test Track. I know there are other things she could/would enjoy but we wanted to take her for the 1st time at 40inches.My son hit 40 inches. First big milestone for him.

EDIT: just measured and she's 39.75 with shoes in the garage.
Being from Texas we do have a pair ;-)Hopefully she'll get there! Cowboy boots maybe?
My son was 38.5 with shoes when we were in WDW in Nov. and he suddenly shot up so he will get to ride the 40 inch rides at DL this May. My daughter was right on the 40 inch line with shoes in Nov and it was a little hard on my son to have her ride things without him at first thankfully no meltdowns.
She should be. If you are worried hit the 40 inches rides first thing - you shrink a bit as the day goes on.Being from Texas we do have a pair ;-)
Just measured with her crocs and saltwater sandals on and was 40inches! So we should be ok in 3 more months right? Right?!? Lol
We have 37.5in-tall-will-be4-yr-olds, and I'm crossing fingers for a growth spurt this summer! That said, hopes aren't high that they'll be tall enough to do most things, so DH and I were under the impression that we could each ride with one of the twins, and the 6 and 8 yr olds could go together on, for example, Dumbo? Will DH and I be asked to take turns taking all 4 girls up separately?! Or can 3 people at a time ride, say, a teacup, so that DH rides with one 4yr old and the 6yr old, and I ride with 4yrold#2 and the 8 yr old? If we will all be switching, etc., I'd just like to know so I can factor that in to our touring plan schedules, thx!
There's nooo way the twins will be 40 in tall by September, but here's to hoping! From what I've seen/heard, my goal for them is 38 in. so they can ride Kali River Rapids with the family. The older two are often mistaken for twins, since the oldest is petite, too, so maybe they'll be allowed to ride things together so DH and I can each take a 4yr old with us. and not have to ride things twice to get everyone on. If riding twice is a must, how much time should I add to our touring plans at MK? What about rides like Toy Story Mania at DHS? Shoukd I plan soemthung like that for when the GPs will be with us? Our ADRs are planned with the GPs, but we weren't otherwise planning on being joined at the hip... time for a new plan? :/
If you're utilizing child swap (a/k/a rider switch) at attractions due to height issues (e.g., an adult needs to wait with the under-height kids, and then you switch off), it will double your "on-ride" time, but not your wait time, as you will not be required to go back through the line again. Adjusting your touring plans for the extra time should be pretty simple.
It's assurances like this that keep me sane. Confession: I have been fighting this WDW trip. For a long time now. And once the twins came along? Pffft. My DH was with me because of the cost issue, and I just was (still am) so overwhelmed- all this work and stress and no guarantee that it'll be worth it? No, no, I don't completely believe that last part. But it certainly *is* a lot of (mostly fun) work doing the research to make sure it's definitely worth it. I am just really grateful for your (and everyone's) feedback, Weather_Lady. That is all.
