    This one's probably the silliest... I am afraid of audio-animatronics.
    Not Silly at all. I blame Chuck-E-Cheese for my fear of AAs. I hate going on splash mountain because of it.

    On matterhorn I Always have my eyes closed during the Yetti because he is so scary.

    Most dark rides are too scary for me. I can do peter pan but NOT Pinocchio or snow white. Mr toad is Freakiest during the Hell scene.

    Gives me shivers just thinking about it....eek

    I think this is the part that freaked me out the most when I rode it last month.. maybe that's the part that scared me too as a child..

    Re: Facing fears at Disneyland..

    I remember I wouldn't ride Space Mtn., Matterhorn or Big Thunder until I was like 11 or 12.

    Considering both of my kids rode Matterhorn at 3, and were riding Space and Big Thunder by 5 and CA Screamin' by 7 ... sounds kind of silly now that I think about it.

    My son just conquered his last "Disneyland fear" at the age of 10 and went on Maliboomer. And loved it.

    Re: Facing fears at Disneyland..

    Yes... Before Disneyland I was scared to ride rollercoasters.

    And the first time I rode Indy I was TERRIFIED. I cried and screamed and almost had a panic attack. It was horrible.

    The more I went to DL the braver I became and eventually I started riding roller coasters - I figured out that I liked seeing the track so I started with Big Thunder and worked my way through the others (Rockin Space Mtn helped A LOT!!)

    It got to the point where I'd ride every ride in both parks but I still wouldn't ride Indy. Then I was going to move out of CA, and I knew before I had to go I had to screw up my courage and ride it.So, i did, with the help of my new husband. And it was SCARY and I screamed but it was better than I remembered.

    Disneyland has helped me gain a lot more confidence in many areas of life.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Facing fears at Disneyland..

    I got over my Haunted Mansion fear in my very first trip to DL. Now I still have to get over my Splash/Space Mountain fears in my next trip.

    Re: Facing fears at Disneyland..

    I can remember the first time I went on Indy, I was so scared of it that I had my coat over my head the whole time! I was so terrified that when I finally came back into the station, I didn't believe my parents when they said it was all over, I was NOT going to take that coat off of my head.

    Fortunately, a couple years later I was back at Disneyland and I went on Indy again, and I almost did the coat thing, but my mom wouldn't let me. Good thing too, cause it was the most awesome ride of my life...at the time.

    Re: Facing fears at Disneyland..

    I have a lot of fears, so I would never force anyone else to ride a ride that they were afraid of.

    BINGO!

    These 3 rides terrified me as a child.

    It's my dad's fault I was so afraid of Mr. Toad. He was trying to make the ride more FUN (Ha!), by pretending I was really driving. When I got to the part of the train, and I was unable to turn the car away, I screamed, threw my face in his lap, and began sobbing. I still remember coming out of there, crying hysterically -- and my dad laughing hysterically.

    As for Snow White, I loved it -- in the beginning. You're in the house with Snow White with the dwarves and animals, and everything is happy. Then you go outside and BAM! Terror until the end. This time, my head was in my mom's lap, crying hysterically.

    I couldn't remember what it was about Pinnochio that scared me. So, as an adult I got on the ride just last year with a friend. At the end, when the whale lunged for us, it all came back to me.....

    So, I think that now I was over my childhood trauma, right?
    Well, I went to the park just last night with a friend. I had NEVER noticed that the queen is in the window above the castle. When I finally saw her, I freaked out, screamed "Holy crap!", and ran away.

    Sad, it'n it?

    Just a few weeks ago two 13 year olds that are ok with big rides (well one of them refuses to go on haunted mansion, but thats a different story) got freaked out by snow white. They left wondering how little kids go on that ride.

    (I'm not talking about my friend and I...course not....XD)

    Re: Facing fears at Disneyland..

    ok...reading further on I can relate even more...

    I was afraid on Indy when I was little...but I still loved going on it...I would go on with my sister and b squeezing her hand the entire time...when she got a ring...i killed her hand. HAHAHA It was that last room mostly that freaked me out...with the shooting arrows.
    Same goes for Splash...I would only go on it with my sister and she had 2 be squeezing me tightly when we went down the drop.

    Also...Cali Screamin was my first up-side-down roller coaster

    Re: Facing fears at Disneyland..

    My friend Jenny is scared of loop-dee-loop roller coasters and she finally went on California Screamin'. It took a couple times for her to actually enjoy the ride after that though. Oh, and she absolutely hates ToT just because she doesn't like the feeling of her stomach coming up. Understandable, but I love that feeling.

    Same here, even thinking of the memories gives me the creeps.

    Re: Facing fears at Disneyland..

    My grandson was afraid of the character at Chuckie Cheese when he was 3. We were going to Disney World, when he was 4, so I just told him that those characters were people acting in costumes, like on Halloween. He was fine with that. He had a great time with characters on that first Disney vacation.

    He got scared when a guest ran out of Haunted Mansion crying. So we didn't force him. That happened when he was 10. It was a few trips after that when he finally rode Haunted Mansion, and now he loves it.

    • MATTERHORN BOBSLEDS: I was always scared of the Yeti and hadn't been on it for 10 years or so and then I recently decided to face my fears and now it is one of my favorites as well.
    • STORYBOOK LAND CANAL BOATS: I use to be scared of going through the whale but now I'm over it LOL.
    • SPLASH MOUNTAIN: Until a few years ago I was terrified of this ride because of the large drop at the end but now I find it extremely fun.
    • PIRATES OF THE CARRABIEN: The darkness in the ride use to scare me when I was 5 or 6.
    • HAUNTED MANSION: Well, I'm still slightly disturbed by the hanging person in the streching room.

    Believe me...I could go on for hours
    I'm still scared of any rides that have lift hills that make the clicking noise, I'm always sure we are going to fall backwards
    Injured on screamin'? Tell me more please? Was it on the day when both of the cars crashed?
