    I need advice for being overweight at disney

    Hi Kristin! Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and allowing us the privilege of assisting with the planning of your upcoming vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    The wonderful thing about the Walt Disney World Resort is that there truly is something for everyone. While some of the more thrilling attractions in the Parks have specific ride restrictions or medical advisories or require guests to meet minimum height requirements for safety reasons, the vast majority of attractions at all four Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks are suitable for all ages. While there are some recreational activities such as the Wild Africa Trek and horseback riding with weight restrictions, currently there are no Theme Park rides or attractions which have maximum weight or height restrictions. 

    Kristin, if you are concerned about your ability to maneuver or fit into a seat on a specific attraction, I recommend that you read the "At Large Trip Reports" contained on the allears.com website. While this is not a Disney owned or endorsed website, I have no doubt that the testimonials from other guests who have shared their weight and measurements and experience in fitting onto various Disney rides vehicles and attractions would be invaluable to anyone with similar concerns.

    Many attractions also have discrete areas where prototype seats are available for guests to try out to assess whether or not they would be comfortable on an attraction before waiting in the line or having to try the seat for the first time in front of other guests.

    Kristin, I hope this information is helpful to you. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
