    My husband and I are plus size. 3x and 3xl. My husband weighs 350. We are planning a trip to Disney this March. We are nervous to spend so much money and not be able to fit on any rides. How do we know before we stand in line 2 hours if we can fit? Help!!

    Hi Brittney!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation will be here next month! How exciting! It's so important that you and your hubby are safe and comfortable while riding the attractions at each of the four theme parks. I hope I can ease your worry by offering you some ideas and thoughts about how to find more information about the ride vehicles before entering the queues.

    There are currently no weight restrictions for any attractions at Walt Disney World. With that being said, some attractions may be more comfortable to ride on than others. In front of many attractions there will be an example of what the ride vehicle will be like on the actual ride; you can test out the seating before waiting in line! Recently, my mom was able to sit in the test seat for Avatar Flight of Passage before entering the attraction. Knowing she would be able to comfortably fly through the air on her very own banshee eased her anxiety before her first flight!

    If you happen to be heading to an attraction without a seat you can test before getting into line, I recommend asking the Cast Member standing near the front of the attraction any questions you might have about comfortably riding. They will be able to share with you more details regarding the seats inside the attraction as well as answer any of your questions or concerns!

    Brittney, I'm so excited for your upcoming trip to Disney! Please give Mickey a hug for me!
