    And as silly as it could sound, try not to spin TOO fast in the tea cups. Though I don't remember them being all that fast to begin with? Just depends on your turning speed. At least that's controllable :]

    So basically avoid anything that look entertaining

    Pirates
    Big Thunder
    Splash Mountain
    Matterhorn
    Space Mountain
    California Screamin
    Grizzly River Rapids
    Tower of Terror

    Anything else would probably be ok

    Just some advice here but years ago my mom broke her wrist. My mom and dad still went to Disneyland though and they road Space Mountain....let's just say it wasn't a good idea (ouch!). I know it's not the same type of injury, but just out of advice, don't risk it.

    And also like others have said, some easy rides might put him at risk with bumping. POTN, IASW (maybe?), Autopia. You don't want to risk doing more damage during the healing process...

    Every collar bone break is different. I broke mine in 2003 while mountain biking, but I was back riding the road seven weeks later. I was "radiologically healed", and the doctor said it was OK to ride as long as I didn't fall

    After the first day or two, I had very little pain or discomfort. I started out wearing a sling, but it was difficult to stay in it, so the orthopedist set me up with an immobilizer that was comfortable enough to sleep in and easy to take off when showering or changing clothes.

    no Indy either

    Funny as it sounds, Alice (which a 15-year-old boy might not want to ride anyway...) starts off right after loading with a neck-jerking jolt! Even the waterfalls on Pirates might cause strain on the injured areas - and there would be a jolt when bumped by another boat from behind - even though it is really slow speed - and the neck-jerk when the boats are moved up onto the unloading conveyor belt at the end. Haunted Mansion has that one spot in the graveyard where it turns you backwards and almost lays you down as you look at the crow overhead.

    I suggest Billy Hill and the Hillbillies! There you might just laugh too hard!

    i agree with indy screamin and mattorhorn i've had back surgery thoughs rides are rough while you are healing... big thunder is questionable.

    My girlfriend and I were there awhile back and both of her wrists as well as her collarbone were broken, casts on both arms and a titanium plate holding her clavicle together.(We are avid cyclists and sometimes it'll get ya!) She rode pretty much everything except Indy and Screamin'.

    She made sure to hold the arm with the broken collarbone close and snug to her body when riding things that were rough, but then again, she is kind of a badass.
