    are there weight limits to any of the rides? do you have any recommendations on rides that heavier people should shy away from?

    Dear Amanda,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us again here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Walt Disney World Resort takes a lot of pride in being able to offer a full vacation experience to guests of all sizes, and there are no posted weight limits on attractions.

    That being said, some attractions may be more or less comfortable for some guests. For example, on Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, the overhead bar must be able to click down for safety, and depending on factors such as weight or height, that may not work for all guests. 

    Honestly though, there are very few experiences that will be a challenge for larger guests. The vast majority of experiences are very friendly to those of us who are more "Pooh-sized." 

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
