    You used to have a version of Star tours for people that have problems with motion sickness I’m not sure if that was the intention but it was available. Do you have anything Similar at Galaxy’s Edge and Pandora?

    Bright suns, Cheryl!

    Your question happens to be about two of my favorite lands in all of Walt Disney World. Batuu, located in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and Pandora - The World of Avatar are both impressive lands that truly take your breath away. I've had the pleasure of frequently visiting both of these magical places, and the experiences never fail to amaze me. Let's walk through these lands together, and talk about how to avoid motion sickness during your travels. 

    I will start in Pandora- The World of Avatar. The moment you step into this land you're going to be amazed. I have to stop and take it in every time. The glowing landscaping and floating mountains will make you wonder when you left Earth for this lavish land. And while site seeing alone is definitely worth the trip, the attractions are stunning. Avatar Flight of Passage is undeniably one of the most popular attractions on property. Flying through the air on a banshee is a breathtaking thrill. But this attraction can cause those with motion sickness to feel a little less than okay. The flight is high speed with sudden drops. Banshees are used to this, but sometimes it is a bit much for us humans. They love an adventure, and their riders are sure to get one. If you are looking for an experience that's equally breathtaking, but more tranquil, I suggest the Na'vi River Journey. There are no drops here, but the experience is equally beautiful. This attraction has so much to see, including the Na'vi Shaman of Songs. Her presence is undeniably magnificent. 

    Let's leave Pandora and head to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. This far far away galaxy offers two attractions, Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run and the ride that needs no introduction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Both of these rides promise adventure and can be a little on the thrilling side. I have found the motions of Millennium Falcon to be similar to Star Tours - The Adventure Continues. Though these rides differ in experience, there are still in-flight crashes, drops, and the occasional high-speed launch. If this type of experience triggers feeling unwell, I would avoid it. Rise of the Resistance has spins, quick turns, and there may be a drop involved as you try to escape the First Order. I do not find this experience to be as intense as the previous attractions. But, when in doubt, avoid intergalactic flights. 

    I hope you have the opportunity to visit both of these lands on your upcoming trip. Yes, the attractions are fun and thrilling. But there is so much more to explore in these worlds! 

    See ya real soon!
