    Hi everyone! I will be going to WDW this Aug with my 5 year old (she looks and acts more like a 7year) are there any recommendations for rides that she may enjoy? She loves roller coasters. And any other suggestions you may have for the both of us?

    Hi Bonnie, if you are going to the Magic Kingdom, your daughter may enjoy Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain.  All kids are different, so I'd recommend that you start with the tamest roller coaster - Goofy's Barnstormer in Mickey's Toontown Fair.  If your daughter finds that fine, you may want to try the other two. 

    My daughter, who is 4, loved Soarin' at Epcot, so your daughter may enjoy that.  In addition, Test Track is lots of fun, as is the Maelstrom at Norway (another roller coaster type ride).

    Keep in mind that every child reacts to each ride differently, so you should review the attractions first before deciding if they are appropriate.

    Have a great vacation!
