    Hi Moms. I am not sure that my kids are ready for rides that have small drops...they say they are...but what happens if they get on Saorin and they "freak out"? Does Disney ever stop and let them off? (even if the ride didn't start yet?)

    Hi Jody,

    The call on something like this would be up to the cast members on site, so I can't really give you a hard and fast rule. My personal guess is that on something like Soarin', if a child (or an adult) was experiencing distress before the ride started, they would likely postpone the start and allow the guest to leave. Once the ride is operating, it would take a pretty substantial "freak out" for them to stop the ride.

    To avoid such situations, my strategy would be to use a slow, steady build of attraction challenges. Start with something like Dumbo or Aladdin, where the "drops" are visible and obvious. Then move on to Peter Pan, which has a very mild aerial element, then Pirates of the Caribbean, which has the teeniest of water drops. You get the idea. There is video of nearly every Disney attraction somewhere on YouTube, so you can get a pretty good sense of what the rides are like from there.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
