    What if my DAs enters and decides they can’t handle the ride, can other people in the party have to leave?

    Hello Dian, and welcome to planDisney!

    It's so great to see you here today Dian, and I'm so happy that you've taken the time to ask planDisney such an important question about visiting the magic of Walt Disney World Resort.

    One of the most wonderful things about spending time at Walt Disney World Resort is that there's truly something for each and every Mouseketeer to enjoy.  From the young to the simply young at heart, everyone is given the opportunity to feel enchanted by the magic of Mickey Mouse!

    With this in mind, I'm more than happy to share my own personal experiences of visiting the most magical place on earth as part of a multi-generational family group.

    A few years ago, after my family had spent quite some time waiting in line for The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  At the very last moment, before we were invited to enter the lift up to the 13 floor, one of my then-teenaged children, announced she was in fact, too nervous to visit The 5th Dimension!

    Of course, this did not mean that everyone in my family had to miss out!  I simply explained our current predicament to the nearest Cast Member, and they very kindly, (and sensitively) escorted my daughter to the nearest exit.  This 'hidden' exit provided my daughter with a safe route to the gift shop where she could wait for us to exit the Attraction after experiencing the Twilight Zone for ourselves!

    It might be helpful to know that by searching online at www.DisneyWorld.Disney.go.com for each Attraction and Entertainment offering at Walt Disney World Resort, it's possible to learn more about each individual ride, show, or experience. 

    By simply researching Attractions at Walt Disney World Resort, Guests can discover any pertinent accessibility guidelines, safety, or Attraction advisories (such as 'thrill ride', 'dark' or 'scary'), and also the Guest policies which are currently in place.

    Lastly, I wonder if Rider Switch might work well for your family!  Rider Switch is available at select Attractions at Walt Disney World Resort and works by allowing one Guest to wait with the non-rider (or riders) whilest the rest of the party enjoys the Attraction. 

    When the other Guests return from enjoying the Attraction, they are able to wait with the non-riding Guests, and the waiting Guest can board the Attraction without having to join the regular line again!  To enjoy the benefits of Rider Switch, simply ask the nearest Cast Member as you enter an Attraction - I know it might sound complex, but in reality, it's actually super easy!

    Dian, I hope that I've been able to provide a little pixie-dusted reassurance for you today.  If you should have any follow-up questions, then please do drop back to me here at planDisney where I'll be happy to help you once again.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
