    Going to DW in 2 months for my 1st time! Taking my 7 1/2 yr old daughter...She gets scared & sick real easily on rides. Can you tell me what rides she might enjoy without the getting motion sick threat? And which ones u suggest using the fast past for?

    Welcome Home, Kim!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about Walt Disney World Resort attractions. Congratulations on your upcoming first vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! We love helping first-time Guests make the most of their vacations.

    I have been suffering with motion sickness for as long as I can remember. Having experienced every attraction on property, I feel fairly confident sharing which ones have the potential of making your daughter feel ill. For the most part, I have "grown out" of my more severe motion sickness, but I still tend to plan my experiences around it.

    If “simulator” rides trigger your daughter’s motion sickness, she may want to steer clear of the following:

    Avatar Flight of Passage
    Star Tours - The Adventures Continue

    Two of the rides listed above are actually my favorites! If she can handle “simulator” screens, she will enjoy Soarin’ and Avatar Flight of Passage. Neither of these are turbulent or scary, but I added them to the list because I know that simulator screens can trigger motion sickness for some Guests.

    She may also become dizzy or scared on DINOSAUR (turbulent, scary, dark, bumpy ride), Kilimanjaro Safaris (turbulent), Primeval Whirl (fast spinning), and Mad Tea Party (fast spinning).

    You can click on this link for a comprehensive list of Walt Disney World attractions which offer FastPass+ service. I suggest grabbing a FastPass+ for Avatar Flight of Passage, as it is currently one of the most popular rides in “the World!”

    Kim, I would love to continue helping you. Please feel free to follow this up with an additional question if I can be of any more help!

    Wishing you a Magical Vacation,
