Travel Guide: Scare Guide: Animal Kingdom

Some rides scare children, either because of the movement or the scenes along the way. Animal Kingdom 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. It’s assumed, perhaps incorrectly, that the typical five-year old is not scared of big, wild animals seen at a distance.
