    I am 6'5" and go about 255 to 260lbs. Any rides/attractions I am too big for in any of the 6 parks? Could stand to lose a few pounds anyways if needed to ride everything..lol

    Hi, James!  You've found the right mom to answer this question!!  My husband is 6'2" tall, weighing in at a very healthy Pooh size; and I have been to Disney World with my 6'1" dad, and his two brothers - 6'5" and 6'7" tall!  I understand your concerns!

    For the most part, you should not have much trouble with the rides any where at Walt Disney World.  There are a few things you might have to be a little creative about getting into and out of with those long legs, but even on things like Test Track and Rock n' Roller Coaster, you can request the front seats, which have a little bit more leg room.  Be careful on the Mad Tea Party - the tea cup ride in Fantasyland - but even there, if you can just shift your legs to the side or straddle the wheel in the middle, you'll do fine.

    Of any place you could choose to go, Disney World is quite possibly the friendliest at accommodating people of various shapes and sizes.  When in doubt, just check with a cast member, and they will be able to reassure you.
