Does the movement of the seat in Soarin' go up quickly? Do you feel secure in the seat with your feet dangling? We're trying to decide if it would be too much for our 6-year-old daughter. No one in our family has ridden it. Thanks!!

They have a strap that goes between little kids legs so they can't fall out. I think she will be fine(: - amandapanda3  39.3 #120 2:40PM
Try to get a FP for this one. It usually has a long wait if you don't hit it first thing! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 3:36PM
We went around 1pm and the fast passes were gone! We waited in line during magic hours and it still took us over an hour. Good idea to hit this place first for at leAst a FP. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #606 3:58PM
Thanks for the FP tip, Jalex and Disneyaddict! We will be sure to get one early. Thanks for the help!! - BagGal  340.9 #25 8:24PM
I felt very secure. The seats kind of tilt backward too so it doesn't feel like you'll fall fwd and out. It goes up abrubtly but not scary even for a 6 yr old. - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #71 11:13AM
It's not an intense ride. Your little one should enjoy it with no worries. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 11:20AM
Not scary at all! Its really fun! In the introduction video they explain that there is an additional loop you put the seat-belt through if they are little. There is one lift in the begining and that is it; its not that fast. Try watching a video on youtube if you want to know more. - samndawn67  21.8 #164 11:21AM
No worry !! She'll be fine , very secure !!! - skcanfield  563.4 #15 11:27AM
Totally fine for her, she'll love it!! - mrsincredible  1190.0 #5 12:18PM
You guys are great!  I'll tell her.  Thanks so much!  - BagGal  340.9 #25 12:19PM
I felt like the seats went up at a moderate rate of speed.  If you are worried about being high, sit in the back row, it'll be just a little off the ground.  Our 5 year old (4 1/2 at that time) was a little nervous, but in the end she was fine.  And as far as secure, you are def secure! - DizneyGirl  936.0 #8 12:24PM
Back row= good idea! Thanks! - BagGal  340.9 #25 2:25PM
My 6 year old loved it! She had never been on any adult rides on our trip and she rode everything there! Soarin is a must for her! - girlonfire  54.1 #102 12:34PM
I think it goes up kind of fast but once your up, the movement is minimal. My kids love it. The only thing is at the end there is a very loud noise and that scared mine for a second. Now they know, they still love it. - BodinFabFive  26.3 #147 12:51PM
Good to know, thanks! - BagGal  340.9 #25 2:26PM
My daughter did it when she was 5 and she really liked it. I told her its just like dumbo ride goes up but it has diff seat and shows a movie, then she was fine about trying it out. - cheekymouse  34.9 #130 1:03PM
Good idea... telling her it was like Dumbo. I'll do that too! Thanks! - BagGal  340.9 #25 2:26PM
It's nothing like a coaster. The first movement is fast but not bad at all. My 6 year old loves it and she is scared of the"big" rides. Your daughter will be fine. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #606 1:55PM
Thanks y'all!  I read these comments to her and she feels a lot better about trying it!  Thanks a bunch! - BagGal  340.9 #25 2:27PM
It's very smooth and if she gets nervous on it tell her to look to the sides and she can see that she's really not that high up. But I bet she loves it :) - MrsaHoltgraves  35.0 #129 4:00PM
Great idea, thanks!! - BagGal  340.9 #25 8:23PM
When mine were four they were fine, so your six year old will be okay:) - celebrationasheley  18.0 #180 9:06PM
Thanks for making her (and me) feel better! :) - BagGal  340.9 #25 3:15PM
you won't fell moving we didn't fell like we where moving at all - jeri814  156.9 #57 3:50PM
