Vertigo Meets Disney Parks — Magic Kingdom

Updated: Sep 25

Everything you need to know about going to Magic 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.

"it's a small world"

Rating: 9/10, you’re good to go! Description: Slow, forward-moving boat ride, lots to look at but not over-stimulating Alternative: Wait in Pinocchio's Village quick service and wave to your party out the window that faces the ride. Chicken Exit: Where guests board the boats. This queue is an ordinary line with not much to look at, so don’t feel you need to experience it.
