I'm okay if I'm in the front car/seat. Those are the two main things other than if I'm in a loud environment for too long, it can cause a massive migraine. Had that happen on Space Mountain once. I got hit with both a super long 75 minute wait (even though the wait time clock read 30 minutes and there was a tour group in the line behind us that would scream and shout every time a train was sent through. I had to ask the CM if I could go to the quite line when we hit the area where they direct you to the two separate lines. He wasn't going to do it but his supervisor stepped in and let me go through. It was either that or I was exiting. Basically I use an alternate entrance when the lines are too long
