    Hello There, I am also an Obese woman I am 5'6 and over 360lbs will I be able to ride some of the rides with my children? Also what is the best things to do while visiting WDW but stay on Budget while getting the whole Magical expierence. thanks

    Hi there, Jennifer!

    You are going to have the most magical vacation and you will absolutely be able to ride the Attractions with your children! I too am on the fluffy side and before my first visit to a Disney Theme Park, I was very concerned about whether or not I would fit on the ride vehicles. With that being said, one of the many reasons I love to visit the Walt Disney World Resort is because I don't have any issues on any of them. Some of the attractions even have test ride vehicles where you can try them out first. Just ask a Cast Member if one is available. For lots more info on this, visit and look under "WDW at Large".

    Taking a ride on all modes of transportation that are available at the Walt Disney World Resort is one of our family's favorite things to do that doesn't cost any extra money. My kiddos are so funny because instead of "planes, trains, and automobiles", we talk about "monorails, boats, and buses"! Sometimes, it's really fun to go for a leisurely boat ride from Downtown Disney and take in the sights. We often like to ride the monorail around the Resort loop and get off at each Resort to just take in the gorgeous sights of the lobby areas!

    Another tip I have for an extra dose of Pixie Dust during your vacation is to arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom and/or Magic Kingdom Park about 15 minutes before they open. Magic Kingdom Park happens to be my favorite because they have an opening show right at the front entrance with a great Good Morning song that my mom used to sing to me when I was little! It warms my heart every time I hear it! Main Street, U.S.A. is bustling in the morning with the Trolley Show and you can even ride it back to Cinderella Castle! It's fabulous!

    I sure hope I've helped ease your mind a bit and encourage you to write back in if I can help you with any other questions you have!

    Wishing you a Pixie Dusted vacation!
