    So I have a bad neck and can't go on rides that may jerk around but I LOVE big thunder mountain railroad and was wondering if I would be ok to go on it if I wore a neck brace?

    Hi Michele, welcome back to planDisney!

    The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is truly the wildest ride in the wilderness!  Since you have previous experience with this ride, you might remember that there are plenty of bumps and sharp turns as well as the jolting stop at the end of the ride.  I checked the "Show Safety, Accessibility and Guest Policies" link for this attraction and it states the following:

    "WARNING! For safety, you should be in good health and free from high blood pressure, heart, back or neck problems, motion sickness, or other conditions that could be aggravated by this adventure. Expectant mothers should not ride."

    My recommendation would be that you not ride due to neck problems being specifically called out in the safety message.  Please consult with your doctor for further advice, if needed.

    Each attraction and experience page on the Walt Disney World website will include a "Show Safety, Accessibility and Guest Policies" link that you can review in advance of your vacation.  This information should be helpful to you as you plan your day in each of the theme parks.

    Michele, I wish I had better news for you but I am happy that you are putting your safety first by asking this question.  Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.
