    I noticed in another ? that some rides include restrictions if you have high blood pressure.One of our group does. Can you tell me some of the rides that include this warning? I didn't realize that this would be an issue. Thanks for all your help!

    Tricia, Luv you're thinking ahead. Safety is WDW's # 1 concern for Guests & Cast Members. All attractions have been extensively researched & tested for any possible restrictions. Warnings & Restrictions are there for a good reason & should not be taken lightly. They include but are not limited to:

    • Height Requirements
    • Special Effects being too intense
    • Being in good health & free of high blood pressure, heart, back or neck problems
    • Motion sickness
    • Expectant Mothers
    • Attraction may be too intense for young children
    • Claustrophobia
    • Sensitivity to flashing lights
    • Free of a tendency towards dizziness

    You can check the WDW website for restrictions by viewing each attraction or visit for a list. is an unofficial Disney website but they do a great job of compiling the info in one place. Search their website for Ride Restrictions which will bring up a chart of attractions that have some sort of restrictions/warnings. It lists which parks the attractions are located in & restrictions & warnings for that attraction. The info is also included on the Park Guides at the parks & posted at the entrance of attractions so be sure to confirm before boarding. You can also consult a CM at any attraction w/ additional questions.

    Knowing before you go can help avoid disappointment when you get to the parks. We have a member of our family w/ epilepsy. Even though his seizures are controlled w/ medication, we still avoid those attractions w/ strobe lighting effects - its just not worth the risk especially when there are so many other things he is able to enjoy. Wishing you magical memories!
