    Myself and my husband are going to Epcot in 2 weeks and we are both on the large scale. He is 6 ft 2 in and about 370 and all belly and I am 5 ft 6 in and about 270 and very round. Will we have a hard time fitting onto the rides?

    Hi, Abbey!  My husband and I are both in the Pooh sized category, and we have never experienced any difficulty with the attractions at Epcot.  He is about 6'2" tall, 350 pounds, and at my highest, i was 320 pounds or so at 5'8" tall.  

    The best thing to do if things look like they might be a bit snug is to just tell the cast member that you are a party of one, which will give you a solo spot where you can ride one behind the other in most cases.  Especially with someone tall, it can be helpful to have your own attraction vehicle so you can sit a little bit sideways.

    I hope you both have the most amazing time!  No one should have to worry about fitting onto an attraction, and i think Walt Disney World is the most friendly place for plus sized people when it comes to seats and attractions.  

    There's one vacation stress totally vanished!
