    As a a large woman will I still be able to ride the rides with my kids?

    Hi there, Avery!

    Disney strives to give its Guests of all shapes and sizes a spectacular time while at the Parks and Resorts, and makes any number of accommodations to ensure this.

    My first bit of advice is to try all of the rides; consider giving each one a quick "eyeball estimate" to determine if you will be comfortable in the car/bench seat/ theater seat. You will be surprised, I think, that most of the rides and seats are made to welcome any number of body types.

    Please know that Cast Members have worked with Guests of all shapes before, and understand that sometimes a rider might need an extra minute or two to fasten a seat belt securely or to get comfortable in a seat. You can always speak to the Cast Member at the loading area in advance if you are concerned.

    The independent fan site offers a wonderful comprehensive section called "Walt Disney World At Large," which offers all kinds of tips, tricks, measurements, and personal experiences from Guests who have had the same question as you. It's a very helpful resource, and is kept quite current.

    Have a terrific time in the World!

    See you later, celebrator!
