Dinosaur can be a little scary so I would say that would depend on the child. If she likes coasters already BTM should be fine. Soaring' should be fine as well, just prep her for being lifted and held up. You can also pull up the rides on YouTube to show her and see how she reacts. There are actually a lot of things I forgot about in some rides that I noticed when watching them too. I have to pay more attention than most though, for my autism spectrum boy. : )

Good to know. I'll also YouTube them.

Ethan loved the Barnstormer last year. We didn't take him on Dinosaur b/c he was right at 39". Though some CM's were flexible about letting him do things (We totally understand the safety factor but with rides like Star Tours, they were really nice about letting him on anyway), we were surprising him with a special meet and greet with Darth Vader at Hollywood Studios later that afternoon so we were also trying to keep him as less-stressed as possible. He likes dinosaurs a lot but not when they are roaring loudly. Once we let the cat out of the bag about our trip, I'll let him see what the ride is like and decide for himself. I'm hoping he'll love BTMRR. I've never ridden it, myself. It looks fun.

magic band...???

rut roh!!
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Do the Magic Bands have a pin associated with them?

I vaguely remember setting up a code and um I'm not positive what the code was that I set and was it for the magic bands.
Oh pooooooooooooopy on this.
How do I make sure we don't run into a problem?
I imagine the CM at the resort and reset it if the # I'm thinking isn't right.
Big giant sigh.

Do u mean that u set one up for online checkin? That's the only time I've heard of a PIN being mentioned. It's so u can charge to your room.

I hope u get it sorted out

Just modify your online check in and you can pick a new pin.

This isn't a problem. I tested the bands in August. I did not remember entering a pin but probably did so I had no idea what that pin was. So when I checked in I just asked if I could change my magicbnd pin and they said no problem. They hand you the little number pad and you enter your 4 digit code twice and enter it.

Speaking of little ones riding rides. My 2.5 yr old should be 40" when we go if he's not already. I have seen signs that say 40" or 3. He is very big for his age so I don't think they will doubt him not being at least 3 but at the same time I worry that these rides may be too much for him. Any thoughts?

My daughter was 4 1/2 (very tall for her age) rode all of those rides and loved them except Dinosaur. That ride is a bit scary for younger children. Soarin is great. Big Thunder Mountain is fun too...a bit jerky, but fun!
