    My daughter has had corrective surgery for a heart defect at birth. She needs to avoid rides that have sudden drops or g-force. Is there a website or something where I can find out in advance the the rides with warnings about people with heart conditions

    On the Disney website's individual descriptive pages for each attraction there is a note if that particular attraction has any sort of caution or health warning. For example, take a look at the Space Mountain page HERE and you see the warning notation. Also, once you get to the parks, any health warnings are prominently displayed at each attraction's entrance.

    The best way to get all this information in one place would be to purchase the Passporter Open Mouse guide to Walt Disney World. This book is available at many larger bookstores and from for approximately $20.00. This is by far the most comprehensive source of information for guests with ANY sort of disability including heart issues, allergies, vision and hearing issues, size issues, phobias, and the list goes on and on. Each attraction at the park is described in great detail in terms of the physical challenges associated with it. I think this book would go a long way to helping keep your daughter safe.
