    One of the guests in my party is over-weight. She is over age 21 but still a "kid" and wants to ride rides with the rest of our party. She weighs about 350. Will she fit? I want to make her feel included. Any thoughts? Thank you.

    Hi Suzi!

    How thoughtful of you to help ensure your entire party is comfortable.  Disney does a great job of helping guests of all shapes, sizes and abilities enjoy vacations as magical as they are.  I expect that your friend will be able to ride most of the attractions with absolutely no problem.  Since you said she's a "kid at heart", I thought I'd focus on some "kid favorites".  Rides like It's a Small World, Peter Pan, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Buzz Lightyear and Snow White (this isn't a comprehensive list, rather some examples) all have very spacious seating that can accommodate your friend with no issue, and no uncomfortable situations.

    The independent website allears.net has many first hand accounts from plus-sized guests who have visited and enjoyed attractions throughout the parks.  Most report no problems and fantastic vacations!  If you are interested in reading their accounts, simply search "plus sized" from the home page.

    I think you can ensure your friend that she is going to have a wonderful time at Disney!

    Have a great trip!
