PeopleMover - Magic Kingdom

Guests who suffer from motion sickness can still have an amazing time experiencing Disney attractions. Disney World has an attraction for everyone’s tolerance level. From thrill rides, to dark rides, and everything in between, you will find an attraction that is suitable for you and your family. Magic Kingdom is a park that is home to several classic attractions. There are so many rides to experience and so many rides that are suitable for guests with motion sickness. Here are just a few!

Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor

First on our list is an attraction that is absolutely perfect for those who suffer from motion sickness because it contains no motion at all! Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor located in Tomorrowland is a truly unique attraction because it is an interactive experience with monsters from Monstropolis as you work together to gather enough laughter to power the theater. Audience members can text in their jokes and if they are lucky enough they will be used in the show. Audience members might even be chosen to participate in a few stories and jokes, and of course you will see familiar faces like Mike and Roz. There are no motion elements to this attraction and no 3D-effects; perfect for motion sickness.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover

Do you want a traditional ride experience without the issues that motion sickness brings you? Tomorrowland’s Transit Authority PeopleMover is an attraction that takes guests on a tour of Tomorrowland from an elevated track using the mass transit system of the future. This attraction contains no lifts, drops, or sharp turns. The motion of the PeopleMover is relatively straightforward and guests won’t be surprised by any sudden stops or dips. This attraction does travel through Space Mountain which is very dark, so be aware if this aspect will be problematic for you. Also, guests should be aware that depending on where they sit they could be facing backwards for the attraction, so be sure to choose the seat that faces forward if this bothers you.

Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress

Another attraction with minimal motion is Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress. Also located in Tomorrowland, this attraction is a classic with Walt Disney himself having designed and imagineered it. Carousel of Progress first debuted at the 1964 World’s Fair and has been in production at Walt Disney World since 1975. This attraction takes guests through several scenes of the world’s progress and follows an all-American family as they experience and adjust to the changes. The theatre does rotate in order to show each scene, however the rotation is incredibly slow-moving and only occurs once every few minutes.

Walt Disney World Railroad

Another classic attraction that is great for those with motion sickness is one that too many guests skip during their vacation. Walt Disney World Railroad is a working steam train that makes a full 1.5 mile loop around Magic Kingdom park. Guests can climb aboard using any one of 3 stations located throughout the park, and can either remain seated for the entire ride or disembark at any station. This attraction is a full and nostalgic way to travel throughout the park, and being a classic train ride there are no sharp turns, sudden stops, or drops.
