Disneyland Rides for Non-Adventurous


A friend was saying that she wasn't sure if her family would like Disney because they don't handle rides well. I told here there's so many different kinds of rides and more attractions beyond "just rides" that they could enjoy.

If you can ride in a car (or even handle most of your local small town fair rides) but shiver at the thought of roller coasters, these are the rides for you! Personally, I can't do many spinny or 3D rides in a row without feeling sick but I can do many rollercoasters.

(I believe I've missed some rides as I don't remember them well. The Disney websites let you sort rides further my preferance, such as by "dark ride" too.)

What are you suggestions for non-adventurous people?

  5. Dumbo the Flying Elephant 
    1. a flying  circular ride but the large route helps keep my motion sickness at bay. Control your own height
