I know that WDI had issues with it being able to be accurate over multiple measurements (I know it was tested) but I did not think they had an actual working model of it.

      I'm all for a system that measures by sitting height rather than standing height. If you think about it, a child that has reached the magical 40" may not be as tall sitting down as the next child. In my opinion, safety would be served better if it was a seated height. Of course, my theory is that Disney has this covered anyway and all rides are probably safe at 38" but to cover the different seated heights, they went with 40.
      I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

        I can just hear Cartman now: "Then they came up with the height requirement. So you can wait on line, to wait on line, to wait on line"!

          Thanks for posting this! I haven't seen one of these in person, and I think it'd be cool if these were implemented in the park. The wristband issue could be taken care of very easily--just do a uniquely patterned and colored hand stamp for each height code.

          They could have a lot of fun with this for Tomorrowland attractions. Imagine the thematic possibilities! Other lands would be a lot harder to work 'em into, though that's no reason to not implement the machines.
