    Like your husband I am prone to motion sickness. I am going to Epcot and MK first of August, which rides should I avoid if motion sickness is a problem?

    Hi Dianne,

    I'm not sure how sensitive you are to motion sickness, but as far as my husband is concerned, there are only a couple of attractions that he absolutely avoids.  In Magic Kingdom we stay away from the Mad Tea Party.  Space Mountain can sometimes leave my husband a little disoriented with all of the flashing lights, but he will usually ride it at least once.

    In Epcot he avoids Mission Space.  Although, you can ride Mission Space without the spinning, but he thinks that's wimpy, so he just skips it altogether.  In Innoventions there is an attraction called Sum of all Thrills where you create your own roller coaster, bobsled or jet plane experience.  It's definitely NOT for people prone to motion sickness.

    We don't often get a chance to fully explore World Showcase, but I know that some of the movies in Pavilions like Canada and China make him a little queasy as well.  They're the type that encircle you and sometimes make you feel as though you're moving even when you're standing still.  He can handle one, but trying to see them all makes him really dizzy.  I've been told that standing near the back of the room during these movies can reduce feelings of dizziness.

    I'm assuming you're not going to Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom, but if you are you might want to avoid Rock 'n' Roller Coaster and Primeval Whirl.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
