The Chicken Family
The wife and I are taking our 2 kids (6 & 10) to WDW for a first time ever trip for any of us - 8 days. Both my wife and I are wimps when it comes to rides with big drops. I don't mind quick turns and speed, it's just that "left my stomach on top" feeling I hate. So, what does that leave us with for rides? Besides the baby rides that is. Friends are saying we have to go on Tower of Terror. Maybe I'll work up the nerve by then.
10 days and counting !
Hi Chicken Family: It's perfectly fine. I can help a bit because my 8 year old son is terrified of most everything. My recommendations are avoid Tower of Terror at MGM studios(if you don't like drops, this is NOT the ride for you!) and Rockin Roller Coastet at MGM as well...and avoid Splace Mountain because of the big drop, and Space Mountian as well...
Here are winners in my book-if my son can handle it, I think you will be fine. If you don't mind spins, do the Mad Tea Party, all the rides in Fantasyland (pooh, peter pan, etc..all good ) you can do everything else I think in Tomorrowland and Frontierland except what I mentioned above, and you are set there for hte Magic Kingdom.
At Epcot: I recommend avoiding Mission: Space (simulated ride, but can cause motion sickness, and for your sake, just say no) and if you don't like going really fast, skip Test Track.
DO Soarin in the Land pavillion-it is simulated flying ride, but no drops or anything-it is awesome, me 8 and 5 year old love it, and I am sure you all will as well.
I really think you can do all the rest except probably Expedition Everest in the Animal Kingdom. If you are not sure, as an attendent at the front of each ride-they will be honest with you if you tell them your concerns...
I am in need of some Disney magic!!
only thing i have to add is the Mad Tea Party, take it easy on the spinning.
our last trip, i had that thing hurling around and the wife started turning green.
Someone has been hanging out with Jerrame too much...

Now, I haven't experienced EE yet....so we will see on that one.
Mission Space, yeah, that one left me a little dizzy and do watch how fast you spin those tea cups...
Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!
