    Bringing our 4-year-old to DisneyWorld for the 1st time, with her 18, 16 & 12 year old brothers. She's pretty lively/adventuresome. Am I crazy to think that she might be OK with rides like Splash Mountain or Star Tours? And is Dumbo a must for all Pre-

    Hi, Palmer!  If your daughter can survive daily life with three older brothers, I don't think there would be many things that would scare her! 

    We just spent President's weekend at Walt Disney World, and my three year old youngest daughter was tall enough for the first time to ride Star Tours.  She LOVED it!  She has the personality for thrill rides, and she can't wait until she is tall enough to ride some of the more adventurous rides.

    I don't think you're crazy at all to think your daughter might also like some of the more adventurous rides.  You know her better than anyone, and I always tell my friends who are taking young children to work their way up to the more exciting rides.  See how she does on some of the things geared more towards younger children, like Goofy's Barnstormer.  I know my three year old is a little bored with things like Dumbo and Aladdin's Magic Carpet ride.

    Have a great trip!
