    How rough are the various Star Wars rides at WDW? Husband does not do well with a lot of jolts and ups and downs. He said never again to the old Star Wars & Indiana Jones rides. How do you think he will do? He said he may take dramamine.

    Hello Christine! Thanks for coming to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are always happy to help families with their planning for the Most Magical Place on Earth! Or, in the case of your question, a place far removed from Earth!

    I recently had the opportunity to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run! I am only slightly prone to motion sickness, but was a little nervous about both attractions. My wife on the other hand, is more prone to motion sickness and similar to your husband will no longer ride Star Tours - The Adventure Continues. My advice after experiencing both attractions would be to skip Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. While it is a great attraction, there are many jolts and lots of ups and downs as you make your way through space. Similar to Star Tours - The Adventure Continues, there is a screen in front of you. If your husband really wants to experience this attraction then take the dramamine!

    When it comes to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, I would tell your husband to become one with the Force and go for it! I don't believe he will need the dramamine. This 18-minute long adventure will have you experience various forms of transportation, all of which are technologically amazing, but none made me feel even close to motion sickness. In fact, I told my wife she will be fine with this attraction and I am excited for her to experience it!

    Christine, I hope this was helpful advice! May the Force be with you (and your husband too)!
