    Anna, Thnx 4 your answer about Soarin' and my twins. Related ? re Fantasmic - will nearly 4 yr olds enjoy this? They are OK with fireworks but not sure about the "scary parts" of Fantasmic, I haven't see it. Worth staying up late 4 or save 4

    Hi, Elizabeth!  I love Fantasmic, so I don't think it was an option for any of my kids to be afraid of it!  The first time I took my now eight year old to see it, her head was spinning so quickly to take everything in, that she didn't even realize anything was scary.  It is loud, it is dark, it has a big dragon - but my best advice is for you to take a seat high up in the theatre, and if your little ones get scared, you can hop right out of the exit. 

    If they are not too afraid of most things, I'd go ahead and take my chances.  My now four year old loves the show, but the first few times I saw it with her, I sat with her on my lap, kind of explaining things to her, preparing her for what might happen next.  She covered her ears a time or two, but she asks to go back every time.

    Have a wonderful trip, Elizabeth, and don't hesitate to come on back if you think of any other questions!
