    This is the first time going to Disney since my husband has gained weight are there rides we should avoid due to chest size restrictions

    Walt Disney World doesn't have any weight or size restrictions on attractions, but there may be a few attractions that are smaller that may be uncomfortable for him to ride. None of the attractions are impossible to ride and a WDW Cast Member will be happy to provide a seatbelt extension if there is a need for a larger seatbelt.

    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad has smaller seats, so he may need to ride in his own car. The seats on Aerosmith's Rock 'n' Roller Coaster can also be difficult to get in. Space Mountain is also a little tight, but again, shouldn't be a problem.

    Walt Disney World caters to guests of all sizes and shapes, so if your husband has any difficultly going through the turnstiles or getting into a ride, ask a Cast Member for assistance to see if there is an alternative solution.

    I also suggest checking out some of the message boards, such as at Intercot dot com, to chat with others about their experiences with the various attractions.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
