Some dark rides are terrifying to young children, but they don’t necessarily have to be. It’s all how you describe it. A ride such as DINOSAUR, for example, is much less scary when a sensitive child knows that it’s going to be dark and that the dinosaurs are going to be very close. Make sure that the kids realize that the dinosaurs can’t hurt them. There are warnings on the Walt Disney World website about rides and shows that are dark, loud, and have drops, so read up before you leave home. Do your best to prepare the kids in your party ahead of time, then they will enjoy the ride instead of being scared.
