    Hi- I am hoping to travel to Florida in February or March 2013. I am a plus size and I am wondering if the seating on the attractions acccomodates plus sizes. Often public transportation and theater seating is uncomfortable due to the small space.

    Hi, Elaine! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    First, let me just say that visitors to Walt Disney World come in all shapes and sizes! The Disney Cast Members are generally very helpful and can answer any specific questions you may have about the ride vehicle seating at a particular attraction. That being said, some attractions and shows have more generous seating than others. For example, each ride vehicle on Dumbo the Flying Elephant technically accommodates two people. However, two adults would be very uncomfortable while a single adult or an adult and child would fit quite comfortably in a Dumbo car. 

    I would suggest checking out the "WDW at LARGE" section of the website. There you will find a plethora of information including specific details about seat sizes and the best seating locations for each attraction. 

    Another great resource is PassPorter's Open Mouse for Walt Disney World and the Disney Cruise Line. This book offers detailed information on seating and sizes for every attraction, hotel and restaurant in Walt Disney World! 

    I hope this helps alleviate some anxiety about visiting Walt Disney World as a plus-sized Guest. Wishing you lots of Pixie Dust for the chance to visit Walt Disney World in the near future! Please stop back in to the Moms Panel to ask any other planning questions you may have.
