    we're traveling with our 6 & 8 year old granddauthers. What rides should we advoid?

    Hi Paul!

    Deciding what rides to go on is kind of a case by case basis--some kids can handle thrills and darkness, etc. You shouldn't have a problem with height as a 6 & 8 year old are right around the ages of being tall enough for most rides. You can see all the height restrictions here.

    But personally (I have a 5 year old!) the rides I would avoid would be Dinosaur (it has lots of loud noises, darkness and dinosaurs that jump out at you). I actually had my hand over my eyes the last time I rode it!
    Then the roller coasters that are in the dark--Space Mountain and Rockin' Roller Coaster might be frightening to some people because you can't see what's next!

    I suggest going through the attractions on the website and reading about them or letting your girls read through them. That will give them a good idea what they are like and if they are willing to try them!

    Hope this helps!
