    I am a bit of a bigger women. Will I have problems riding any of the rides do you think? I had an embarrassing scrambler issue at a street fair and am terrified of it happening again.

    Hi Stacy, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question! I’ve been on the receiving end of not being able to fit into a ride at the fair before. It really stinks and I’m sorry you had to experience that. 

    The good news is that you’ll find that most Walt Disney World Resort attractions fit Guests of a wide range of shapes and sizes. At attractions where the ride vehicles may not be one size fits truly “all”, there is often a “tester” vehicle located outside, near the attraction’s entrance. Guests there can get familiar with how to load and unload from the ride vehicle, as well as get information from a Cast Member about any other potential fit issues. If you don’t one at an attraction, be sure to ask the nearest Cast Member for assistance. 

    Based on my experience, you should be good to go for most attractions, but the one where I think you should definitely check the ride vehicle out before getting into the queue would be for Avatar Flight of Passage. That’s the one attraction where some “pooh sized” Guests have had fit issues. From what I remember, there is a sample ride vehicle located directly across from the attraction's entrance. If you have any questions there, or at any other attraction, please be sure to ask the Cast Member who is located at the entrance. They’ll be happy to assist you!

    And please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. I love speaking to my fellow Canadians!

    Have a Magical Day,
