sorry about all the questions i bet youre sick of me already :oops:

is this ride too scary and fast for young children or is it one for the whole family?

It's for the whole family. It is dark in there and there is some cannon fire so that could potentially frighten small children. There is a very small drop at the beginning of the ride. The rest of the ride is a very slow moving boat ride

Agree with Johnie, it's a great ride for everyone. Just one really tiny drop and then a lovely ride. Great Johnny Depp in the animatronics

The six year old I took was really spooked by the cannon fire and the darkness (an issue with that child) so if your children don't like the dark, this could be a problem.

We learned with the six year old that MUCH of WDW attractions are in the dark!

well we have one child who has loved this since he was 2 and one who is scared of it at 6 so its not always straightforwards, I thnk now they have ontroduced the Davy jones film as you go in it can make it a little scary TBH - best off riding it once with the older kids and see what you think
