    Re: Youngsters on the Matterhorn

    My daughter is 3 and loves it but closes her eyes when passing harold. She loves it and asks to go on it all the time. She is actually more frightened of snow whites....she does not like the Queen. Funny thing when we were recently in england she wanted nothing to do with the Queen, we shortly figured out why.

      Re: Youngsters on the Matterhorn

      I took each of my sons on the Matterhorn when they were 2 1/2. Both loved it, and the younger one spent his entire first ride laughing. Personally, I felt totally secure with him belted in and one arm around him- I was even comfortable enough to use my other hand to catch it on video. At that age neither of my boys was scared of the Yeti at all- the older one became somewhat scared of the Yeti at around 4, but still enjoys the ride.

        AWESOME!!! Caden is such a big boy that I don't think that he would be to scared. He loves to be thrown around by his dad.

            THAT IS TOTALLY THE PLAN!!! We might be going tonight. We are going to the trick or Treat at DCA... but since they extended Park hours til Midnight at DL, i think we are going to try it out.

            I will let you all know how it turns out.

              I was scared to ride the Matterhorn until I was around 12 or so...Prehaps I was a ninny? I don't think at 2 they get it, they probably feel the rush but have no idea what just happened.

                  I went over there on Thursday but only the Tomorrowland side was open. and the line was REALLY LONG. So I decided to wait till his birthday on 11.11.09 to take him on it. We will be in the park all day.

                      I think they understand. After my little brother had been on Matterhorn the first time, when he was a little less than two, he got home and saw my Abominable Snowman collectible figure. He said, "It's the snowman! It's the snowman!" (When we first got off the ride, he said, "I liked the rawrasaur!", which is what he says about any monster-like thing, so we told him it was an abominable snowman.) and then he made a roaring noise while he played with it. I still haven't gotten it back, and he also took a Disneyland souvenir book with Matterhorn pictures, and he always gives it to me and tells me to open it up to the "bobsled" page so he can see the "scary snowman". I find it hilarious

                          SO I finally took Caden on the MAtterhorn... sorry that it took so long to do so. I didn't want to take him at night.. But, we went and he was fine all thru the line but once we got to the bobsled (on the fantasyland side)... he got scared. I got him in and settled and he was very scared. But I got him on and he held on to me the whole time.

                          But when we got off he he said was AGAIN AGAIN... and GREAT JOB CADEN... He was very happy with himself and I am so happy for him. Such a big boy I have.. I will try to take him on that again in a few months or so... we shall see.

                            My grand girl is 8 now and loves the Matterhorn. BUT, she was around 3 the first time we took her on it and it terrified her when the Yeti roared and then showed up. It took her until last year to get over it and try to ride again. She was always, ' No Yeti! No Yeti!' Now she loves it and Big Thunder. Not up to Screamin' yet!

                              ok so i remember the first time we took my little brother to disneyland

                              he was a very tall lad so he wasn't even questioned of his height

                              anyways, when he was four, we took him on everything. space, matterhorn, screamin', indy, yeah basically all except splash cause it was late november.

                              the next time, he was 7, and refused to go on everything! ok well not everything just most of the big rides, so me and my mom went on space, screamin, and ToT (it wasn't there last time) and my brother and my dad went on BLAB at least 10 times, and that was just during the magic morning hour!

                              now thanks to youtube, i convinced my now 11 year old brother to go on everything! so we'll see what happens next week

                              then i have my own story but it's not as interesting. scared of like six flags status rollercoaster until i went on one in discovery kingdom and now i love rollercoasters, but i haven't been to six flags magic mountain
