    Hi there! I like to wear knee length fitted skirts in hot weather and I am wondering if there are rides at Disneyworld which are going to make this difficult! I don't really want to have to hoist my skirt up, so I can sit on a ride correctly 

    Hi Sarah! 

    This is a great question! I don't know that I would have even remotely thought about this until I arrived at a theme park and then looked puzzled as I tried to figure out how to navigate things.

    There are a few attractions that might give you a bit of a challenge, but there is really only one that I think might cause you issues.

    On Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you journey on the back of a banshee during an amazing adventure. This is one of the most incredible attractions I have EVER experienced, so I'm hopeful you can find a way to make this work for you. The banshee will very much resemble a motorcycle seat you will straddle, so this could be challenging in your skirt.

    In Magic Kingdom Park, you may have a slight issue on Astro Orbiter and Space Mountain (due to a step down and having to straddle the seat in front of you).

    Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith at Disney's Hollywood Studios has a big step down to board the ride vehicle. Test Track at Epcot is similar with a big step down.

    In my opinion, with exception to Avatar Flight of Passage, the other attractions should be manageable. I will let you know; Avatar Flight of Passage has a test seat outside of the attraction entrance that you can use as a guide to see if it will work for you. I highly recommend you visit the test seat to see if you can make it work. I'm sending pixie-dust your way as it really is a can't miss attraction!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
