    Is there a weight limit for Rides? I heard that some rides have a chair just outside that you can sit in and try it out. Do all rides have this option? I am disabled that caused me to be overweight but can ride some rides, I just need to see if I can fit

    Hi Shannan!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you're planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort in the near future! It's important that you feel comfortable and confident when getting ready to ride any attraction. I'm so glad you stopped by with this important question!

    Walt Disney World Resort does not have official weight limits for the attractions at each theme park. With that being said, there may be attractions that you will find roomier compared to others. For example, I'm 5'8" (and no Jack Skellington) and find the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train to be a bit of a snug fit. Yes! There are attractions that have a test seat out front where you are able to sit and try it out before riding the ride. Unfortunately, not every attraction has this option. If you have any concerns regarding being comfortable while riding a specific attraction, I highly recommend approaching the Cast Member standing at the attraction's entrance and asking their advice on that ride's seat!

    If you haven't done so already, I suggest searching the internet for websites or videos sharing first-hand views from people of all sizes who have enjoyed riding the attractions at Walt Disney World Resort. I've seen videos and photos going into detail on this very topic!

    Shannan, I hope some of the information I shared helped! If you have any future questions, please don't hesitate to come back and visit us again!
