London: 3-Year-Old Stats & Disney Milestones

 And now here are London's stats from her 3-year check up: 

Height: 39 inches (85th percentile)
Weight:31.4 lbs (75th percentile)

London is one inch away from a Disney milestone as we put it - one more inch and she will be 40 inches. Cameron and I talked about, after we took London to Disneyland for the first time at 18 months and 35 inches tall, that we would go back when London & now Sydney reached new ride height milestones, so as to make each visit fun with new attractions to experience. 

We've lightly talked about going in the spring of 2014 when London is nearing 4 and Sydney is around the same age as London was when we first took her. If London is 40 inches by then, which we fully expect her to be (the girl is a growing machine), she will have the option of riding the following: 

  • Big Thunder Mountain
  • Jumpin' Jellyfish
  • Radiator Springs Racers
  • Silly Symphony Swings
  • Soarin' over California
  • Space Mountain
  • Splash Mountain
  • Star Tours
  • Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
This would actually be the next height milestone for London, minus one ride that could have been added at 36 inches. It's kind of hard to believe London will be tall enough for some of the rides named above, but it makes me excited for our next Disneyland visit. We'll see what we can actually get her on at that time, though too. Still not sure about the Tower of Terror! I am excited to take her on Big Thunder Mountain, as it is currently being spruced up and I know she will love Radiator Springs Racers since she is such a huge Cars fan. And I think she would get a kick out of Splash Mountain - not so sure about Space Mountain.

This picture takes me back...where did this little toddler go?!

  1. wow..
    my three year old is still half the size.. he can't sit on anything put the tea cups and the mono rail maybe.
    Disney sounds great.

    1. Actually, about 2/3rds of Disneyland rides don't have a height restriction at all and basically all rides in Fantasyland are fantastic for little ones. It's a different story in CA Adventure and other parks in Disney World. I can say it was amazing to watch London experience Disneyland at such a young age and I can imagine it will be the same our next trip too. London can thank her dad for her height, that's for sure!
