    My 7 year old son wants to ride Splash Mountain. He meets the height requirement but I'm not sure about that big drop. His only other adventuresom ride was Goofy's Barnstormer which he loved. What's your experience with Splash Mountain & that drop?

    Hi Kim!

    I totally understand.  I took my 3 year old on Splash Mountain for the first time a couple months ago and he was not aware of the drop.  (I did that on purpose)  After the drop, he looked at me and said, "Mommy, that was crazy!  Let's do it again!"  Afterwards, I got him a special Splash Mountain pin to commemorate his first time on the attraction.  It is a big drop, however it's over in seconds.  I've heard similar stories from other parents as well.  The ride vehicles have lap bars for safety restraints, so you are very well contained.  My son even loves Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios!  You know your son the best.  If he wants to try it, go for it!  You can hold hands and do it together.  

    Have a magical day!
