Soarin' Great for Seniors

So I've talked to several people who have taken their parents to WDW and it seems like Soarin' is THE ride for seniors. It makes sense to me: Not too crazy, but still thrilling and brilliant. Plus easy entry and exit. I'm nominating it as a perfect ride for seniors. Can anyone think of a better one?

I think Soarin' is great for everyone, and I know my parents love it!

She didn't go on it last year - she waited with Wyatt (he was only 2)

This year I'd love for everyone to go on it - but poor Wyatt is only 38 inches. We'll have to do that parent swap I guess?

What's the height requirement for most Disney World rides?

I think Soarin' and most of those types of rides are 40". Maybe he can stand on his tippie toes or UL could hang him upside down in the closet overnight. Or just feed him a lot and hope he grows 2" in the meantime.

No, leave him out of the closet, just hang him in a doorway!
