    Hi me and my son are going to Disney land in California and he recently broke is arm it’s is vary smalll brake no need to be casted but he is in a sling and I was wondering what ride he will not be able to go on

    Hi there, Matthew!

    I love parent-child outings to the Disneyland Resort. I’ll be taking my daughters to The Happiest Place on Earth later this week as well! Injury or no injury, there is plenty to do at Walt Disney's Original Magic Kingdom.

    Of course, no advice we can offer here at planDisney can replace the individual care and consultation of a medical professional. Cast Members at the theme parks can offer general descriptions of the attractions and possible areas of concern. But they too will be unable to provide qualified medical advice. So my primary suggestion is to seek and follow guidance from your family provider.

    That said, one thing that may be of interest to you is this list of attractions with associated health advisories. This list may not be comprehensive or directly applicable to your son’s specific situation. So it is important to seek appropriate information and use your best judgment when considering whether to participate in each attraction.

    Perhaps a personal experience may offer some perspective as well. Some years ago, my son had a moderate injury that required that he have his arm stabilized in a sling. He was still able to join the rest of the family on most attractions during a visit to the Disneyland Resort. However, certain experiences caused him discomfort, and he regretted trying them. The biggest example for him was the Incredicoaster. The overhead restraint combined with the sudden movements and accelerations typical of a roller coaster ride meant that he did not want to repeat that ride during that trip. After that, he was hesitant to try any other attraction that he would benefit from being able to secure himself in the vehicle and hold on tight. Of course, he’s been back on the Incredicoaster and all of the other thrill rides many times since then! So even if a particular attraction doesn’t work out for your son to experience this trip, I hope you have another opportunity to come back and enjoy it later.

    I hope your son feels and mends well soon and that you both have a magical time, Matthew. And if you need a way to smooth over any disappointments that may occur should it be best to skip a given attraction, my advice from one parent to another is summed up in one word: snacks.

    See ya real soon!
