No in-park child care facilities.

If you are a single parent with one child that reaches minimum height requirement and another that doesn’t, there is no supervised area to leave the shorter child while you take the taller on the ride.

Possible options are: bring your own sitter with you, use an Orlando-area service such as kidsniteout.com to hire a parent-helper to accompany you to the parks, leave your younger child at one of the WDW hotel childcare center in the evening (407-939-3463) and take your older child on the thrill rides then, or simply decide to have everyone skip the bigger rides until you can all do them together.

Height requirements are there for a reason

The ride restraints are have been engineered and rigorously tested with guest safety in mind, and the restraints only work given certain parameters, such as guest height. There’s no reason to challenge or question a cast member who does not allow a child to participate in a specific attraction because of height issues. He’s only trying to keep your child safe.
