For safety and comfort, you should be in good health and free from heart, back or neck problems, motion sickness, or other conditions that could be aggravated by this adventure. Expectant mothers should not ride. Young children should be accompanied by an adult.

Most attractions have what's known as a "child swap" option. This enables parents with children who can't ride a particular attraction due to height restrictions, age limits, or personal choice to ride just the same. To switch off, there must be 2 adults. When your group reaches the head of the line tell the Cast Member that you want to exercise the child swap. At the loading area, one adult rides while the other stands off to the side and watches the children. The other adult will then be allowed on the attraction, at the head of the line, on the very next ride while the adult that already enjoyed the ride stays with the kids. A third adult can experience the attraction with each of the switching off adults if they don't want to ride alone. However, on Space Mountain, after the first adult finishes the ride he must alert the attendant at the unloading area that they are switching off. The attendant will then return you to the loading area via a special stairway to watch the kids. It seems to work well for all involved.

It's also important to keep in mind that although some rides do not have height and age restrictions they may still be a little frightening. Parents should caution younger children to the scarier elements. Some attractions may use strobe lights as special effects, whereas others may have high volumes that could cause discomfort for those with sensitive hearing. Note that children under 7 should be accompanied on most attractions. Below is a list of some rides that may be a little scary for some kids.
