    Hi my family is planning a vacation and one member is very worried she won't fit on the rides are there rides where large adults are unable to ride?

    DEARest Sharon, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I LOVE that you are pre-planning your vacation, and I love that you are so concerned about the comfort of a family member. She's certainly got a friend in you! So guess what? I think the world would be a very dull place if we all looked like Disney Princesses! Eeyore has been my main squeeze since I was little, and Doc and I have more than a few things in common!

    Most of the attractions at Walt Disney World are ideally suited to all body types, as Walt Disney World Resort strives to create magical experiences for all of its Guests. Certain rides have height and health restrictions in place, but there are no specific weight requirements. Some ride vehicles may not be suited for all body types; these are typically the "thrill" rides with safety restraints. Most of the attractions that require these restraints have a "test seat" out front for her to preview, so she will be able to see if she will be comfortable before entering the queue.

    Once all of you pick your must-do experiences (Kilimanjaro Safaris, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, and Soarin' Around the World are major hits in my book), make sure to take advantage of the complimentary FastPass+ service. I use the My Disney Experience app to keep track, and then pick additional Fastpasses once I'm done with my original three. It is one of the BEST ways to plan your day!

    Sharon, I know your family is going to have the most beautiful time! I know by the end of this trip you will be just like Pooh and Christopher Robin when they said, "We didn't realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun."
