    Both my daughter and I are coming to Disney for the first time ever; I think I am more excited than she is! However, I am a 'big' mom. Am I going to fit into the rides? Is there a size/weight limit?

    Hi Michele!

    A huge, warm welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your great question. I am so excited to help a fellow mom and first-time Walt Disney World Resort Guest!

    I can totally understand your concern, and I thank you for being open and honest and sending us this awesome question which will not only help you but other Guests as well.

    I am also a “big” mom, but I like to refer to myself as “Pooh-sized”. I have never had any issues fitting into the Walt Disney World Resort Attractions, even at my largest size (size 22w). Some can be a “tighter” fit, but I have never had any issues closing the lap bars or tightening any harnesses. If you make a Google search for “Pooh size Disney” or “Plus size Disney”, you will find a ton of resources and examples (including pictures, weights and sizes) of other larger Walt Disney World Guests. This information truly reassured me and made me even more excited about my Walt Disney World Resort visits. One of the only Attractions that is a bit tight around my thighs is Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park. Rest assured that I have still enjoyed this fun Attraction every single time I have visited the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks!

    Michele, I hope I have answered your question and that you will visit the Moms Panel again. I wish you an unforgettable vacation!

    With Lots of Pixie Dust,
