We are WDW regulars (10x in last 2 years) with a DD4 w/ severe anxiety issues but we just entered new territory now that she is 40+ inches. A lot if her anxiety comes with crowds in tight places, strangers talking to her, and very much the unknown. For example I thought we'd be fine taking her into VotLM without our stroller/DAS last week but we narrowly avoided a panic attack b/c she said she didn't remember it & needed out now. We've watched TT & 7DMT on YouTube to which she decided she wouldn't do. I really think she would enjoy Soarin but I can't figure out a way to help her get over the unknown with that ride. So I have two questions... 1. Anyone with high anxiety children: do you just respect their wishes not to ride rides or do you try any techniques to encourage them? 2. Could we wait through the line with her and then just walk out through the screen room if she's too scared but at least this would allow her a visual of the ride? Would love opinions of others with children with anxiety issues. It's always hard finding a balance between encouraging her to face her fears & accepting her anxiety. So many of her issues are completely irrational- she will not let us take her picture without an extreme panic/meltdown and has been that way for years. As a matter of fact, she didn't take a bath without screaming the entire time until the day before her first birthday.
