    Going to Disneyland with extended family and wondering if there are height or weight restirictions on rides. My husband is 6’5” 350 lbs, carries most of his weight in his chest which is 52”. Would he be able to fit on most of the big kid rides?

    Hiya, Monica!
    I'm thrilled you and your family will soon be experiencing The Happiest Place on Earth.
    Walt Disney said that Disneyland "started from a daddy with two daughters wondering where he could take them where he could have a little fun with them, too." Following that principle, Disneyland Resort attractions generally accommodate guests of many shapes and sizes. While there may be a few exceptions, most guests of larger stature will be able to enjoy most of the exciting attractions at the Disneyland Resort.
    Disneyland Resort attractions don't have maximum height and weight limits, though individual situations may vary. For the safety of park guests, restraint systems must be properly in place. The good news is that ride vehicles of most of the attractions that may have limited passenger space are visible before entering the queues. Your party will usually be able to judge whether a particular attraction is suited to you. With few exceptions, the large and tall members of my family are able to experience all the Disneyland Resort attractions they want. Attractions that we find have limited passenger space for our particular body types include Goofy's Sky School in Disney California Adventure Park and Astro Orbitor in Disneyland Park.
    Cast members at the entrances of attractions as well as at Guest Relations locations and kiosks will be able to provide guidance and information about any available accommodations. Some attractions, like Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage even have an accessible experience that allows any guest to participate, regardless of physical or other considerations.
    Have a most magical time during your visit to the Disneyland Resort. See ya real soon!
