    When I took my then 4 year old to see The Beauty And The Beast Show at Hollywood Studios, she screamed the place down when that little old lady (the witch) walked on stage to curse the prince. Full on high pitched terrified screaming. It occurred to neither of us beforehand that she didn't know that it was actors dressing up, and not _REAL_. She'd recently seen Snow White and remembered the "wicked witch little old lady"!

    You'll never see The Beauty And The Beast Show making anyone's list for a "No go" ride with kids, so make of that what you will o_O

    I know this is a 2 year old comment, but that was probably the best description of Stitch I have ever heard.

    like I get maleficent but the rest.... your kids should have just ducked or closed their eyes. the rest is about as intense as illuminations

    I'm surprised to see Fantasmic is on many people's list. I don't have kids, but the stage is rather far from the seating. I know there's a few villains, but it's not like they're up in your face.

    Me too. I even got emotional the first time I saw it because I loved it. I would say it's a "must do" at least once.

    My 4 year old granddaughter was very quiet after experiencing Dinosaur. The next day at the Magic Kingdom she would ask if their were dinosaurs every time we got in line for an attraction. We had to reassure her that there were not, or she wasn't about to do it.

    Yeah, from personal experience, 4 is too young for Dinosaur. My girl was absolutely terrified of it.

    Even at 10/11, my step daughter buried her face in my shoulder in Dinosaur.

    My daughter wouldnt go on Its Tough to be a Bug or Dinosaur for YEARS after she hated it the first time because she was too little. Even the pre-show in Mission Space freaked her out!

    My son 3 at the time just tall enough to ride 7DMT and he did it 2 times. But after that was scared of every ride. We are going back in Feb 2018 and he still says he is scared of roller coasters and only likes the boat rides.

    My problem is Fantasmic is boring as all get out to me, so I wouldn't make my son stay up just to watch it. One and done at both WDW and DL for me.

    I could see kids having issues with sitting still more than I could them getting scared, for sure.

    He'd likely sit still better than I did ;) But I'm with you unless they are very young I didn't find it scary at all.
