Many Guests want to enjoy themselves at Disney World. After all, that’s the whole point of visiting! However, Disney World keeps Guest safety a top priority by taking many precautions. In addition to the Covid-related measures that have been implemented for the last year and a half, there are other things Disney does to keep Guests safe.

One of those is a health warning at most attractions in its theme parks. Upon approaching attractions, you will likely see a sign warning you to not ride if experience health issues. These may include back or heart problems or if you suffer from motion sickness. In addition, many expecting women should not ride certain attractions.

It’s always important to look at these precautions because they are there to help keep you safe. Unfortunately, Disney cannot prevent every injury that may occur within its parks. A new reports shows the number and types of injuries Guests experienced at Disney World in 2021.

  1. If your not going to pay attention your gonna get hurt I was walking in the parking lot fixing my grandsons magic band fell over the curbs in the parking lot that’s what I get I bet most of them ppl tried to sue

  2. I am a 65 yof. When we were there in December, I fell getting off the bus because I stepped down with my right leg, which has always been weak. Silly me! I fell trying to hurry to Rise of Resistance with my grandson. I wasn’t paying attention and I didn’t see the curb. Third, I cut a gash in my right arm on something sharp on Star Tours. It was bleeding horribly! Went to First Aid, washed it, got antibiotic and bandages. If I had health issues, I wouldn’t get on certain rides. People, READ THE SIGNS!

  3. Most of those arent accidents..just old folks who shouldnt be riding or people with medical conditions that shouldnt be on certain rides

  4. I have seen guest on all rides not listen and hold their hands up over their heads. Those rules are there for a reason yet , people do it any way.

  5. If you are ever prone to motion sickness FOP will
    bring it on. There are multiple warnings. I have done it twice and decided I wouldn’t risk it again. And exiting HM onto that moving sidewalk throws me off balance sometimes too.
