I'm afraid of ToT. I've been on twice, but now I think about it and it makes me anxious and nervous. My mom is going to make me ride it though otherwise she won't ride Cali Screamin' with me

I used to be scared of ToT, but now it's one of my favorite rides. I can handle the drops, its the spinning motion on rides that get me. So I am only good for SM or BTMRR once, and the teacups are totally out of the question. LOL

I'm not scared of any rides but I refuse to go on the canoes and the tea cups. The first because I'm simply too lazy to work that hard and the latter because it makes me too dizzy.

I feel your pain! Never been on ToT and I don't think I ever will. Used to LOVE drops like that, but just can't do it anymore. I haven't been on Splash for years because of it. I will probably be talked into it when the kids decide to go on for the first time. We'll see if I ever return.

Never been on GRR either. Getting soaked just doesn't appeal to me. At all. I'm not necessarily opposed to trying it, but it would have to be a pretty darn HOT day to convince me.

Um Yeah. Me, too. In general I do not have a fear of heights, but there's something about ferris wheels (even little ones) that freak me out. Add to that the swinging cages. I'm out. Have no desire to even try this one (unlike the part of me that wishes I could get myself on ToT just to see it once).

I am scared of ToT. But this next trip my 5yo wants to ride it. On average how many times does it drop? And are they huge drops?

I have no problems riding anything else at DL.

The only rides I won't go on is because, of my cat costumes during MHP, BTMRR, Splash, IJA, SM, and Matterhorn bobsleds. If it's not during MHP I would go on all the rides with now problems

Pinnochio - severe fear of being turned into a donkey.

We also don't do Roger Rabbit or Mr Toad; but they don't invoke childhood nightmares for me like Pinnochio does.

At DCA......Silly Symphony Swings (The only type of ride that I actually get sick on), Goofy's Sky School (transferring from the stationary platform to a moving vehicle is very difficult for me and the bump in the middle of the seat that they added makes it quite uncomfortable for guys).

At DL...Astro Orbiter (Hard for me to climb in and out of) and the Teacups (ever since my sisters wanted to do Dumbo, then the Teacups right after at WDW, I can't handle them).

As for ToT, on ours, the number of drops are set and do not change, I am unsure of the exact number though. Honestly, it is a fun ride to me, but I do like the WDW version a little better.

Love the Mickeys Swinging Cages of Death name! That is EXACTLY how I feel about the ride! Ick!

I also will not ride the teacups -- not into the spinning.

Star Tours -- motion sickness

Screamin' -- just not my thing. Too fast.

Space Mountain -- hate the whole being in the dark thing.

I think that's about it. I will try anything once but if I don't like it then that will be the one and only time.

I want to say it is four (maybe 5) drops. The first and last are the biggest. The others are smaller. And they take your pic after the first drop when the doors open and you can see out.

I hated TOT forever! I rode it in fear..everytime... When my daughter was about 4.5, she told me, "TOT is only scary because you hold hold on so tight Mommy. If you let go...you'll just float..It's amazing"...We now always ask for the back row, and hold our arms in the air, like we don't care! It's very freeing!

Pretty much a ride chicken. Will not ride mountains No Space, Splash (did that once..HATE the drop) have ridden BTMRR 4 times and really would like to like it so maybe I'll keep trying. No Matterhorn, Screaming, Swings (isn't the Zepher the same thing really?) Would do the Wheel of Death in the stationary baskets but looks kinda boring to me..no TOT. I can do teacups if not being madly whipped around (do NOT ride with my younger son). No Goofy Sky School. Love GRR, Soarin, Star Tours and all the new Cars Land rides.

The only ride that I have trouble with is the swinging gondolas on the Mickey wheel, I went on it once about 5 years ago and it was the most terrifying 15 minutes of my life, I nearly summoned up the courage to try it again a few weeks back but thankfully the rest of the family chickened out and we went on the non-moving gondola which in itself was scary enough.
