Yeah Brody was almost 40" and with certain shoes he made it on the rides. His first trip we only took him on RSR but then the next one we took him on all the other big ones when regular shoes and his height worked. He was over 4 and seeing 2 year old on some rides really made me upset because I felt like just because they were tall enough doesn't means they understand to hold on or won't be scared  More...

I dunno.  But safety first.   - Butterlina  1543.3 #100 6:26PM
Absolutely! - nmkd  2.8 #56079 6:37PM
...just be prepared if she's that's close to not making it to 40", she will probably be measured several times throughout the line.  In other words, making it past one CM doesn't mean you are good to go.  It's always safety first.   - Linzee  1122.0 #150 6:35PM
Oh thank you for reminding me of that. It's been so long since I was there as a kid. I'll just measure her the night before we leave and steer her away from problem rides if she's a little short. - nmkd  2.8 #56079 6:41PM

I found them to be quite particular.  - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  481.8 #413 8:25PM
On Tower of Terror the slid a piece of paper between measuring stick and his head and rejected him. They are doing it for safety. Some rides are slightly different in height. If they are close at the front, the might get turned away if they measure just before the ride. It happened to my mini a couple times. Make sure you set their expectation.  And your 40" might be different from their measurement. - DLKenCA  2384.8 #54 1:03AM

We like going the weekend before MlK in January and non-we'd of that week. Small world is open but haunted is closed. They typically only close 1 of those 2. Other rides it just varies but since it's the 60th and a lot of things just did refurb the last 2 years I can't imagine a whole lot being closed. Hours are shorter and the weather is cooler so it keeps a lot of locals away too we felt cuz wit  More...

I think that's a hard one. From my experience, low crowds mean more attractions down. End of January is usually pretty empty after all the holiday stuff is down. We used to go for a week in March when I was in high school and it was empty but now spring breaks are so spread out its iffy. - MellieKay  218.2 #1696 8:51AM

ive heard early feb is also nice. We went first week of March last year and it wasn't too bad at all then either. Just count 6 weeks before Easter and that's typical spring breaks. Since Easter is early April next year shouldn't be too bad. We are planning a trip later in April  - brodysmommy  412.9 #507 9:22AM
Since she's 1, there are A LOT of things she can't go on. Probably most of the "kiddie" rides. I would suggest first couple weeks in December. Before Christmas break. A 1 yr old will LOVE all the Christmas decorations and lights. It's also one of the least crowded times because people are waiting for school break. However, there aren't many "slow" times any more like there used to be. Also make sure you find the Baby Care Centers in both parks. They will be a lifesaver and great place for down time, etc. - DLKenCA  2384.8 #54 9:50AM
Thank you so much! Yes I will definitely be visiting the baby centers while we are there. I actually didn't think of going in early December because I just assumed it would be absolutely crazy for that whole month but she definitely would love the Christmas lights! - PixieBelle  237.9 #1438 1:05PM

We just went in January. We thought our space was better. Theirs seemed more jerky and not as dark. Thunder mountain reminded me of the way outs used to be, really fast..  I liked it. Pirates is shorter since it doesn't have the drop or the beginning stuff like we do. Those haunted is different and I kinda like it better. I would def do that one.
