My daughter was scared on Nemo too when she was 3. She was a bit scared on Toy Story the first time, but then loved it. It is not scary, but on our trip my daughter went on The land ride with the thunder first and then anything we tried to bring her on made her cry. It took her a few times of us bring her on different things and telling her it would be fine for her to be ok. Toy Story ended up being her favorite ride.
Fantasmic can be scary at times for some. My daughter was always fine with it. You could check it out on utube if you have never seen it.
Nemo is in a darkened line that leads to clam shells that take you past some dark and scary parts. Toy Story Mania is in a well lit line and the ride is well lit. There are lots of fun things to do and see along the way unlike Nemo that suddenly blows up a mine. I took a boy who just turned 4 years old to MK and he was fine on Small World because it was brightly lit but the darker rides freaked hiim out until I got him used to the ride and into the fun. I think she should handle the well lit rides better. If she freaks out over Small World then you might have a problem.
Mom calls to check on me and reminded me to pay the gardener. I love her so much.
Disneyland was fun with flag retreat and pickles. I have a home here, thank you. GAC is NOT a "front of the line pass".
She is gone but keeping signature. Laundry is getting done. My purpose in life is to help poor people in FL. Farewell, will miss you.
If she spooks easily, I would skip Fantasmic - it focuses on the Disney Villians and has a large snake, a large dragon and the moat gets lit on fire. Not only is it Mickey's nightmare, it might also be your daughters.
As for TSM, it's not scary at all. It has the Toy Story characters and it's carnival games that you play. Although the one thing I'll point out so you can prepare your daughter is occassionally you might get a little squirt of water or a blast of air. If she knows about it and it happens, then hopefully she won't get scared by it.
I've never thought of TSMM as scary in any way -- although the motion of the cars can be jerky.
If she scares easily, I'd skip Fantasmic. It's a show about a nightmare more than it's a fireworks show. Just make sure to catch Wishes and Illuminations to get her fireworks fix.
