    We just learned the BTMRR will be closed for refurbishment when we are there in Feb 2012. We're looking for a good first time roller-coaster (i.e. a BMTRR replacement) that DD 5 will be able to enjoy but not be too frightening. Any suggestions?

    Hi Gregory!

    I'm sorry to hear that Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will be down for refurbishment during your vacation.  I think a good alternative (although I wouldn't consider it a 'roller coaster' by any means, but still very thrilling, would be Test Track at Epcot.  It's a great experience for the little ones to feel the wind in their hair at 60+ miles an hour!  Another favorite of my 6 year old, is Soarin'--again, not a roller coaster, but a really fun, great experience for the little ones. 

    Splash Mountain (despite the drop) is a fun one for the adventurous kids as well--if you daughter feels comfortable with it. 

    Have a magical vacation!
