One of the first things we did on the first day in Disneyland was Ben took the three boys on Splash Mountain (they really really really wanted to go!). After the ride was over, a traumatized Alex and Nicholas decided they would never ride that again, but Daniel decided it was his favorite ride. They then decided they wanted to go on Indiana Jones. Daniel was too short so he went with me back to the hotel to start getting lunch ready while the others rode the ride. Once again, traumatizing. After that combo, the two older boys wouldn't go on any rides unless Madelynn and I were riding it. Finally on the last day just hours before we had to leave the park, Nicholas tried a few bigger rides and saw that all rides are not scary and ended loving them. We never did get Alex on anything bigger than Small World again though. Guess he'll never trust us again.
