Except for those who have fear of heights (and can't ride glass elevators as a result), these really shouldn't be a problem with anybody.

It will be the fastest, most efficient, quickest moving (in terms of waits and queues) transportation option on property. Go Disney!

I remember those - six flags in Atlanta still has them, and we ride them with no issues. However, I'll point out that there were a couple of accidents on those old sky buckets, both times that I read about, it was a worker who somehow got caught out in front of the bucket, and knocked off the tower (they clung to the bucket for a while then fell). Not gonna happen to a guest.

I think there was also a guest who fell to their death by climbing out of the bucket, purposely or accidentally. Well, climbing out purposely, but perhaps falling accidentally. People often think they can do things they can't.

My assumption: You sit or stand properly inside your gondola, you'll make it safely to your next destination without smelling like roasted pig, sweating like a prostitute in church, or throwing spasming like Donald after kissing the electric eel in Mickey's Philharmagic.
