    Hi! I'm going to WDW on february with my 15 year old daughter and we were wondering if it was a good idea or not to go to soaring at epcot, as we don't like fast or thrilling atractions. What would you recomend?

    I would not classify Soarin' as a thrill ride at all. There is some very gentle motion during the ride, but at no point do you fall, spin, or go fast. My mother has been to WDW with me several times. She very much dislikes thrill rides and won't go on any roller coasters or anything that moves quickly. But she goes on Soarin' all the time and loves it. My most motion sensitive daughter loves Soarin' as well. 

    The only people that I might caution about Soarin' are those that have a phobia of heights. I have a dear friend with a severe fear of heights. While on Soarin' you are secure in the vehicle, you are positioned about 30 feet in the air (with no forward motion). However, the nature of the ride is that you feel like you are very high. She was quite disconcerted by this. She is the only I know of that didn't love Soarin'.
