My son will be turning 4 right before our trip, and while he’ll be tall enough for most rides, I don’t want to freak him out too early in our trip.
We have a FP+ for Big Thunder planned for fairly early in the day on our first MK Day. I tried to get 7 Dwarves before BTMRR but couldn’t get a FP+ for that until later in the day.
What do you think about Big Thunder being his first real coaster?
I’ve thought about trying out Barnstormer first, but honestly, I hate that ride. He did a “kiddie” coaster like that at Dollywood when he was 2 and he didn’t love it… of course, he was only 2 at the time.
When he watches videos of BTMRR, 7DMT, and SDD he gets excited and says he can’t wait, but you never can tell how a kid will do when they actually get there. Also, when my daughters were younger, I made the mistake of convincing them to try RnR. They were so spooked by that experience, they didn’t want to try 7DMT, or much of anything else, later on in the trip.
