    What ride should I stay away from if I get sick on spinning things?

    Hiya Marge,

    Welcome to planDisney. The only thing better than planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is the actual trip itself. There is even more fun to be had and magical memories to make during The World's Most Magical Celebration! The great news is there will be plenty of attractions for you to enjoy during your visit. My husband is not a fan of rides that spin either and finds it fairly easy to maneuver around those that may make him a little queasy. I promise he still has plenty to keep his ride ticket full.

    A good number of attractions at the theme parks are slow moving rides that run on tracks that wind there way through various areas filled with music, great scenery and amazing audio-animatronics. Since I am not completely sure how you define "spinning", please know that I took the word in the literal sense of an attraction that operates in an ongoing circular motion. In that case, you may want to stay clear of Mad Hatter's Tea Party at Disney's Magic Kingdom and Alien Swirling Saucers at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Both attractions are similar to the old fashioned Twirl-a-Whirl in that not only the ride itself spins continuously, but your individual car is also designed to spin. There are a handful of attractions that operate in a circle but your individual car does not spin. These would include The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Astro Orbiter, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and Prince Charming Regal Carousel. There are also a couple of attractions that have a spinning element to them but it is not continuous. This is the case in Toy Story Mania and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. You car does spin a handful of times throughout the ride but the spin is short and sporadic throughout the attraction. 

    Most of these attractions are visible to Guests before you even enter the line, making it easy for you to watch from afar and decide if it is something you prefer to avoid. We also found it helpful for my husband to read through the description of the attractions before our visit. You can find a brief description of each attraction and where it is located under Attractions and Entertainment. Another option is to check out other Guests' videos on You can search Walt Disney World attraction videos and often find video clips of the attraction itself. Lastly, if you have any concerns about an attraction and how you may feel, please speak to the Cast Member at the entrance to the ride. They will be able to describe the attraction and answer questions to help you decide if you would like to ride. 

    I hope this proves helpful during your decision process. If I can help with any further planning questions, please stop back and see me.
