Travel Guide: Scare Guide: Disney Hollywood Studios

Some rides scare children, either because of the movement or the scenes along the way. Disney Hollywood Studios rides are listed clockwise here as “None” (not scary to the typical five-year old), “Some” (scary to a sensitive five-year-old) and “Lots” (bad choice for all five-year olds due to movement or scenes). Some faster rides have height requirements. Further explanation is given if necessary.
