    I am a large size guest, weighing 250#. Will I have problems fitting into the seats, or fastening safety devices?

    Hi, Barbara!  Until very recently, I weighed over 300 pounds, and I travel often with my husband, who is still in the 275 pound range, and we have not had any difficulty at any Walt Disney World theme park with fitting into the seats or with safety devices.  On many of the rides, you pull the bars back to you as far as you can to be comfortable, so it's not even an issue, and even with rides like Soarin' or Stitch's Great Escape, you control how far the bar comes down. 

    Please don't feel like you need to be uncomfortable or self conscious in any way about your weight at Disney World.  You will see people of every size and shape there, and I never felt at all awkward myself about being Pooh sized at Walt Disney World!
