Most of us have a favorite Disney character who we can relate to in some way or another.

Perhaps you have a favorite Disney Princess who you admire. Maybe one of the Disney Princes is the most dashing in your heart.

Or maybe there’s a particular Disney Villain that you love to hate, or a Disney cat you wish could be your pet!

But have you ever wondered what the Disney character heights would be in real life? Sometimes it’s hard to tell from the movies.

We know what some of the Disney character height requirements are for cast members at Disney World, which gives us an idea of how tall they would be–let’s take a deeper look!

How Tall are Disney Characters?

Now let’s keep in mind that the unofficial heights listed here will be estimates, because these are not real people, after all.

So nobody knows for sure exactly how tall they would be–these are educated guesses.

Sometimes these estimates are made based on how tall the character appears against other more common objects in the film, such as a door or animal.

Disney Character Heights

When doing research into tall Disney characters and short Disney characters, I got different answers for some.

So some of these heights are averages or the most commonly given height for the character.

Either way, these are some interesting tidbits of trivia for you!

Disney Princess Heights

  • Snow White – 5’2″ to 5’4″
  • Cinderella – 5’4″
  • Aurora – 5’6″
  • Ariel – 5’4″

  • Mulan – 5’2″
  • Tiana – 5’6″
  • Rapunzel – 5’1″
  • Merida – 5’4″

Who is the Tallest Disney Princess?

Some people believe Elsa to be the tallest Disney Princess, at 5’8″.

However, Elsa isn’t technically a Disney Princess, so it’s believed that Pocahontas is the tallest of the princesses.

And although some internet sources will tell you Moana is the tallest princess at over 7 feet tall, we know that simply isn’t the case. She’s about the height of 4 heihei chickens, or about 5’4″ tall.

Who is the Shortest Disney Princess?

The shortest Disney Princess is Rapunzel, at 5’1″.

Snow White runs a close second place at 5’2″ to 5’4″ tall.

Who is the Tallest Disney Character?

The tallest Disney character is believed to be James P. Sullivan, also known as Sully, from Pixar’s Monster’s Inc.

He comes in at 7’6″, which is taller than any other character in their regular form.

Of course, other characters may have become larger during their films (such as Jafar and Ursula growing larger later in the movies), but in terms of regular heights, Sully is tallest.

Baymax from Big Hero 6 is in second place, with a height of 7’0″.

Who is the Shortest Disney Character?

If we’re counting animals here, the shortest Disney characters are probably the mice from Cinderella, including Gus Gus and Jaq. It’s believed they are about 3-4″ tall.

Otherwise, Jiminy Cricket and Tinkerbell are tied for second place, each coming in at around 6″ tall.
