Hi, hope everyone is well.
I am due to go to Disney World in Orlando (for the first time) soon and have suddenly had concerns about my prosthetic eye coping with the rollercoaster rides. Has anyone experienced any difficulties on any of the rides? Should I avoid any of them ?
Thanks for your help!

It's a fun place. Have a good time. I would treat roller coasters the same as swimming in the ocean. Wear, in this case, a good, tight eyepatch over the prosthesis for the duration of the rides. Disney isn't a rollercoaster centric type park with lots of thrill rides, so it wouldn't be all the time.

Thanks a lot for your very helpful advice Mike!
I have packed my eye patch!
I'm guessing there should not be any problems on the 9 hour flight - maybe the air con might irritate?
Best wishes.
