    I am a relatively bigger person (250+lbs) and am wondering if there are any rides that I should not attempt more so for fear of embarrassment with trying to squeeze in or being asked to get off. Thank you!

    Hi, Danielle! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks so much for asking this great question about the Disneyland Resort. I hope you’re getting excited for all the magic that awaits you at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    I understand your concerns, but please rest assured that millions of Guests of varying weights, sizes and shapes experience the Disneyland Resort’s attractions, rides and entertainment every year. Attractions at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park don't have specific weight restrictions, but all Guests must be able to enter the ride vehicle and close their safety restraint (if one is present) before riding. The Disneyland Resort attractions offer a variety of safety devices and different seating configurations, from individual seats to bench seating, that are able to accommodate Guests of many shapes and sizes.

    There are a few attractions with tighter ride vehicle seating, like roller coasters such as Space Mountain and Goofy's Sky School. One option to help ease your uncertainties is to check YouTube for full ride videos so you can get a good look at the ride seating, how the attraction moves, and if it’s something you’ll be comfortable experiencing. When you arrive at the resort, I suggest stopping at City Hall in Disneyland Park or the Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park to speak with a Guest Services Cast Member. They can assist you with assessing the accessibility and comfort of each attraction specific to your individual situation. However, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by just how much you’re able to enjoy!

    I hope this helps, Danielle. Please don’t hesitate to visit us again with more questions as your pixie-dusted vacation draws near!

    Wishing you magic,
