Our DD5 is a bit of a scaredy cat. She goes crazy whenever she sees a bug, (I mean like someone just cut off her leg!!!). Anyways our dilema comes to a head when it comes to Disney. She LOVES the teacups and the Merry-go-Round (but she won’t ride a horse, she needs to sit). She refuses to go on all other rides. We have just started forcing her, which I am very well aware of the way it sounds but it is not so bad. During our last trip she cried all the way through the Nemo and Friends ride, she was so scared. We forced her to ride it and she actually loved it, but is now giving us a hard time about going on it again! She is too much.
She has gone on Pirates every trip (this will be her 4th) and every trip refuses to go. We are wondering if anyone else has these types of issues? We know she will like the rides if only she gives them a chance,we don’t want to force her, but we also don’t know of any other way to expose her. We have offered for her to earn a pin for every really big ride she gives a shot (we must be crazy, this could end up costing a fortune), we have offered to take her and her sister back to BBB if she tackles specific rides, NOTHING!!!
What would you do? Keep in mind, we are not talking roller roasters here, we are having the hardest time with the Magic Carpets and Dumbo!!!
