    I was planning to take my family to Disney World next year, is there a weight limit? Like a person between 300-330 pounds.

    Hi Katelyn,  

    How wonderful that you’re starting to plan a special visit to the Walt Disney World Resort next year with your family – thanks for thinking of planDisney as you begin this exciting process. Please know that you and your family members are each as welcome as can be at Disney Parks, and there is no set weight limit to enjoy the incredible experiences throughout all four theme parks, resorts, two water parks, and Disney Springs across this sprawling property. I appreciate you sending in this concern and am honored to share some more details of what your family can expect to feel comfortable.

    A vacation to Disney World is strenuous if you plan to walk throughout the theme parks, and many Guests of all ages, sizes, and abilities choose to rent a wheelchair or an Electronic Conveyance Vehicle (ECV) to make the many miles easier. I’ve done this for my family a few times and we’re always glad to have the support! Please know that wheelchairs rented through the theme parks have a 350-pound weight limit and the ECVs have a 450-pound weight limit; both mobility devices are intended for one person at a time.

    While none of the attractions have a specific weight limit, there are a few that can pose a challenge depending on an individual’s body shape to ensure safety and security in the attraction. Please see my panel pal Jen’s great guidance for the new thrilling attraction, TRON: Lightcycle / Run in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom Park. Another one that can be helpful to try a test vehicle prior to entering the queue is Avatar: Flight of Passage in the land of Pandora - The World of Avatar within Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Cast Members can often help a Guest securely click their ride vehicle into place just before it begins, but it’s best to confirm your individual comfort and fit prior to preparing for the experience in the queue and boarding area. Taking a few moments to test these vehicles and ensure your family members feel safe and confident will make them feel included in experiences and minimize the risk of having to depart an attraction early.

    The Aerophile balloon ride at Disney Springs may seem as if it has a weight limit, but it also does not! The Cast Members will ensure the total Guest limit is not reached and balance your safety and enjoyment of this unique experience without restricting any individual based on weight.

    One of the things that makes these vacations distinctly Disney, in my view, is the core value of inclusion and feeling welcome in all aspects of these amazing experiences together. I hope your family will have the most wonderful time together, and that this guidance eases your mind or reduces any pre-trip anxiety about what anyone can or cannot do. Rest assured; you will be able to enjoy most everything together to your level of comfort.

    Please let us know what other questions you may have as you plan this special trip in the new year. 

    YOU are the magic,
