  • Disneyland attraction height requirements
  • Disneyland ride weight restrictions
  • California Adventure ride minimum height requirements
  • California Adventure attraction weight requirements
  • Rider swaps (aka, Rider Switch) List at Disneyland and California Adventure

Disneyland and California Adventure Height & Weight Restrictions

The above is about minimum height requirements at Disneyland and California Adventure theme parks and attractions.

But you might also wonder about the maximum height and weight limits at Disneyland and California Adventure.

As of late 2020, Disneyland and California Adventure do not have general maximum height and weight restrictions. Keep in mind that each person’s situation will be different, including comfort level. Also, for the safety of all park guests, all attraction and ride restraint systems must always fit properly into place.

But that’s the only real “restriction” when it comes to height and weight at Disneyland and California Adventure ride sizes and maximums.

Rider Switch at Disneyland and California Adventure

Now that we’ve seen all the height and weight restrictions and requirements for the attractions and rides at the theme parks…

Let’s take a look at all the rider switch (or rider swap) opportunities at Disneyland and California Adventure.

What is Rider Switch? If you aren’t familiar, here is Disneyland’s definition of Rider Swap / Rider Switch below, as well as how to actually go about using it on your family Disney trip and vacation.
