All measurement sticks aren't created equal. I shared this years ago but I'll repeat the story. Early in line at splash mountain my youngest was measured and passed the test. About an hour later and just before getting on the ride she was measured again by another person and came up short . She was crushed. :-( They gave her a certificate though that gave her permission to go to the front of the line if she visited again a bit taller.

The next year we we're back in line but of course the cert had been long lost. We waited a bit and when a splash mountain line tender walked by I mentioned it to her, and she asked my daughter about it. When my daughter said she had lost the cert, the Disney person pulled her out of line and took her the back way into the ride and right to the front of the line (family in tow of course). She was soooo happy and proud as we were thanking her for bringing us a long. Anyway a disappointment was righted and its another good memory of Disney. That daughter is 21 now.
