Vertigo Meets Disney Parks — Animal Kingdom

Updated: Sep 25

Everything you need to know before going to Animal Kingdom with vertigo and motion sickness.


Rating Scale: 1-10 (1: still riding the ride an hour later (iykyk) - red flag, avoid)

(10: Can walk a straight line to next attraction - good to go)


*Chicken Exits refer to the point in the queue a guest can exit the line, meaning you can stay in line all the way to this point and then tell a cast member you won’t be riding and they will tell you where to exit. All attractions have some sort of chicken exit so guests who may not want to ride can stay with their party and enjoy the queue.


Please note: We are not licensed to give medical advice or liable for these suggestions. Information is based on the personal experience of a Disney vacation with an immediate family member with vertigo. Every person’s vertigo is different and no one knows your health condition better than you. Please consult a doctor prior to your trip if you have questions about your health.

Animal Kingdom Attractions

Avatar Flight of Passage

Rating: 1.5/10, this is a bad idea

Description: Simulator ride, 3D glasses

Alternative: Check out the gift shop at the end of the ride for unique merchandise and experiences. Or head over to Pongu Pongu for a Night Blossom or Satu’li Canteen for a meal.

Chicken Exit: Where guests board their banshee. Similar to Rise of the Resistance, you can go all the way through the queue to see the Avatar-themed elements and watch the preshows before exiting. Just let a cast member know you’d like to watch the preshows but will not be riding. You’ll just stand with someone in your party on their number marker.
