    I was wondering if the 3D shows would be too difficult for an ADHD 4 year old? He can sit still if it is really somthing he likes but I'm worried about the glasses. Do you think that a 4 year old can handle keeping on a pair or will they just distract?

    Hi Karli! I completely understand your concerns about the 3D shows in all of the parks at Walt Disney World. I have a six year old gandson and it has been a struggle to get him to keep the glasses on during the shows. Part of the issue is that all glasses are the same size so for the younger ones they are quite big. But many children just don't like to wear them or have anything over their eyes which is a very natural reaction. However, that issue never stopped us from taking him to the shows. There is enough going on that he always enjoyed sitting in the theater and sometimes he would put the glasses up to his face on his own. I definitely would go to the shows but just don't expect that your four year old will cooperate fully with the glasses. Don't make a big deal about it and just have a pair for him to use if he wishes. I love all the shows in each of the parks. The only one that tends to be a bit scary is It's A Bugs Life in the Animal Kingdom. i just suggest families with younger children to sit in the back and on the left side as the large bug that comes out close to the audience is in the front right. My personal favorite is a tie between Philharmagic in the Magic Kingdom and Muppets 3D in Hollywood Studios.
