    Hi. I have a friend that is 6'10" tall. We are wondering if there are any rides he will be unable to ride at Disney. Thank you.

    Hi Jessica, 

    My husband is 6' 5" and there's only one ride that he barely fits on: Avatar Flight of Passage. The "banshee" that you ride on has a limited amount of room to fit on it. I know of someone who is 6' 7" and he wasn't able to fit, but I also know of someone who is 6'8" and he fit. I think it depends partly on how long your friends torso is compared to his legs. If most of the height is in his torso, he will be fine. The great thing about Avatar Flight of Passage is that there is a "test seat" which is located near the FastPass+ entrance to the attraction. Your friend will be able to test the seat ahead of time to see if he can fit, rather than waiting in line only to find out that he can't fit. You should note that it is a test seat and doesn't guarantee that he will fit inside, but by trying it ahead of time, he can figure out how to adjust his legs and/or contort his body to fit. A few tips that my husband points out is that you should tell your friend to move his feet as far forward as he can and push up on his tip toes and lift / bend his knees when they are buckling the restraints. This is what he does to fit better. Another thing that your friend might want to do is to search YouTube for videos with tips on how to fit. There is one entitled, "PANDORA FLIGHT OF PASSAGE SEAT TIPS FOR PLUS SIZE & TALL PEOPLE" which is pretty handy. This is such a fun attraction, so I hope that it works out for your friend. 

    The only other attractions that my husband feels a bit "crammed" into are Space Mountain and Splash Mountain. You have to be flexible to comfortably get into those seats, but once your friend is in, he should be fine. 

    I hope this helps and that your friend is able to enjoy all of the wonderful attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
