    Hi We are planning a trip for next year and there are some larger males in the group. 6foot 7 and about 400lbs is the largest. We are wondering if the larger guys will be able to go on the rides due to their size. Thank you Mel

    Hey there, Mel!

    It's great to hear that you and your team of Incredibles are planning to visit The Happiest Place On Earth next year! I know you’ll make wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. I'm delighted that you've reached out to us at planDisney. It's natural to want to make the most of your trip and experience all the attractions. As someone who loves visiting amusement parks worldwide, I can relate to your concern about body size restrictions, as some of my family members have faced similar challenges. However, one thing that always makes me feel at home at the Disney Parks is that I know everyone is welcome and can enjoy the magic. Just look at how the Super Bowl champions celebrated their victory at Disneyland this year– a testament to the resort's ability to accommodate guests of all shapes and sizes!

    Last spring, I stopped by Guest Relations to get specific answers about weight limitations on rides. A friendly cast member informed me that the Silly Symphony Swings might not be suitable for larger guests since it is a single-seated attraction, but apart from that, the standard safety restraint belts used throughout the resort can accommodate up to 600 pounds. Some rides that use these safety restraints include Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters and Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! , among many. 

    Space Mountain might cause a slight delay for your crew, as you may need to wait for a specific vehicle to ensure safe weight distribution. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is another great option because it can accommodate larger guests, although not everyone in your party may be able to ride together at once. Overall, there are plenty of attractions that guests of all shapes and sizes can enjoy, and you and your cast of characters should have a fantastic time on your visit!

    I hope I’ve encouraged you not to worry too much about what you can’t do so that you and your Mouseketeers can start getting excited about what you can do, Mel! There's no reason why you all shouldn't be able to enjoy all the rides and attractions just as much as any guest. If you think of any more questions, I hope you feel free to message me again. I’d love to share my favorite tips and suggestions for making your visit to the Disneyland Resort extra special!

    You've got a friend in me,
