    My Gdaughter can't wait to ride the 7 dwarfs train so I fastpass for 3 of us -now I'm worried b/c I have VERY wide hips (I'm large to begin with) & I've read seats r small. I will b humiliated if I can't fit- Can you tell me how many inches side to sid

    Hi, Laura!  I happen to be Pooh sized myself, and I'm going to just lay it out there for you.  The seats on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train are molded, as opposed to a bench type seat you will find on an attraciton like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  My ample derriere managed to fit just find on the seat.  If you spill over a little bit, it really isn't that big of a deal.  

    The part that was most uncomfortable for me was the lap bar.  My legs are long, and my knees were wedged pretty tightly on the wall of the car in front of me.  Then when I pulled the lap bar down, I felt somewhat smooshed.  I fit, but it wasn't terribly comfortable.

    There is a lot of conversation out there online about the seats, but it really comes down to your body shape.  I think legs are going to be more of an issue than bottoms.

    Have an awesome time!
