    Good morning, My boyfriend and I will be coming to Disney in May (his first time). I'm concerned because of his weight (400 lbs) that he will not be able to fit on the rides. Are there any rides with weight restrictions? Any suggestions? Thank you :)

    Hello, Laura,

    How wonderful that you and your boyfriend are coming to Walt Disney World and that it is his first time!  To help answer your question and begin planning, there are several insightful  articles that will provide you with helpful information.  First, has a section called Walt Disney World at Large, which can be found under the Planning pull-down menu. You'll find a nice explanation of what to expect and options available to your boyfriend as well as some other guests' experiences. 

    Another thorough collection of articles was written by our own Disney Mom Erin who provides detailed information on all the Walt Disney World attraction vehicles and seating. If you do an internet search for A Guide to Walt Disney World Attraction Vehicles and Seating and Erin and Touring Plans, you should be able to locate the articles on each of the theme parks. I think these articles do a wonderful job of showing exactly what the vehicles will look like and what mobility is required for them to help you and your boyfriend decide if there will be any restrictions for him. 

    Wishing you both a pixie-dusted trip!
