    I would like to travel with my 13 yr old to Disney this year but she is apprehensive because I can't go on any of the attractions that cause motion sickness. Is there a way for her to enjoy those rides by herself? Can I wait in line with her?

    Hi, Karen! Yes, you can certainly wait in line with her. Sometimes, families are so eager to "beat the crowds" or avoid the lines that they don't realize that some really great family time can be spent waiting together. (That's when we start asking each other probing questions or plan the rest of our day!)

    I understand your dilemma since recently I visited a park with my 13-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son. Each one wanted to ride with me on the more thrilling rides which left one riding by him/herself. What was so great is that the cast members noticed our odd number (and my look of concern) and placed a single rider of similar age and gender with my son or daughter. It relieved my mind knowing that they shared the experience with someone similar to them although they were strangers.

    In addition, I think you'll be surprised at the many attractions you'll be able to experience together that won't cause motion sickness. I hope you have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
