    What are the restrictions on the Flight of Passage ride for a plus size guy? If he can squeeze into it is it uncomfortable during the ride? Checking before we book our fastpasses. Thank you.

    Hi, Rebecca!

    Welcome to Pandora - The World of Avatar. This new adventure in Disney's Animal Kingdom is truly spectacular. When you enter this world, you cannot help but pause to take it all in. Full disclosure: I have never seen the movie, but was still amazed by everything and cannot wait to return. My Banshee is waiting!!

    I have been on Avatar Flight of Passage probably 10 times, and I have seen guests of shapes and sizes and none have had an issue with the restraints (minimum height requirement of 44 inches). Each guests sits on their vehicle (personal Banshee!) then the restraints close after being seated. Because they close to each guest's size, most body types should be able to safely be secured. To be sure, there is an individual Banshee vehicle outside the queue. Hop on, see you how feel! A Cast Member will be happy to assist you to make sure you will be comfortable when boarding your Banshee and taking flight!

    Plan to get your Avatar Flight of Passage FastPass+ as soon as your booking window opens as this is definitely the "hot ticket" right now. If you change your mind, you can always cancel it, but I know the FastPass+ availability does not last long so don't miss out. 

    Best wishes for your vacation and as the Na'vi say...SIVAKO!
