    Do you have a phobia that stops you from going on a ride??

    Do you have any phobia's that prevent you from enjoying a Disney ride or attraction? I have clostrophobia so sometimes it prevents me from doing some of the things I love to do . Let's just put it this way, I don't miss 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ! How about you? What phobia do you have and what ride do you avoid because of it ? Also what do you do to overcome it?
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    Well, I'm not crazy about heights. There is nothing I "won't do" at Disney, but I'm not crazy about the Astro Orbiter. It's too high & fast for me.

    I also get motion sickness, but that's not really a phobia, so ... nevermind.

    Well...lets see...the only phobia I have is ones that have lines that are way too long...like 80min is my max limit usually. It just makes me go to another ride and come back to the ride later.

    I don't really have phobias. I'm just a scaredy cat.
    I have a fear of being stuck alone on a ride. Like Splash Mountain, or Pirates of The Caribbean, or The Haunted Mansion. Rides like those. Cause The animatronic figures kinda freak me out even tho I think they're really cool! Gosh, just thinking about it makes me nervous.
    Love, Kerri

    I know sometimes if I carry one of those little fans with me that helps somewhat with tight enclosed spaces. Sometimes for me the cue lines are worse then the actual ride. Yes, I know

    Small World scares me.... No just kidding... A timeless classic. Mad Tea Party scared me when I was younger, thought I might get sick. Now I love it all!

    I don't like big drops and I don't like things that spin. Oh, and I'm a pilot.
