    Welcome Home, Allyson!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your fabulous question about Walt Disney World Resort attractions. As a “Pooh-sized” Guest myself, I hope that my personal experience and knowledge can help you better plan for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Although I am only 5'7", we seem to be about the same size. I am also evenly proportioned and have experienced — and enjoyed! — every ride and attraction at Walt Disney World Resort. You will be happy to know that there are no weight limits on any of the Walt Disney World Resort attractions or rides. However, there are two attractions which may be a “tight fit” for you as they are for me. These two attractions are Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park and Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Depending on your hip and thigh build, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train can be tight around the legs, but I have always been able to enjoy it. In fact, I have seen Guests upwards of 300+ pounds enjoy it, albeit a bit uncomfortably. If you have large calves or carry the majority of your weight around your tummy, Avatar Flight of Passage may be a tight fit as well. Fortunately, there is a “test seat” right outside the attraction —how convenient! The Cast Members at this attraction are aware of some Guests of size having issues fitting into the ride seats and are extremely accommodating and patient.

    Allyson, I highly encourage you to search and join the Facebook group “Disney Parks for Plus Sized Guests” to find a community of highly experienced plus sized Guests willing to share their Walt Disney World Resort pictures, stories and experiences. If you have any additional questions, please visit the Moms Panel again! I would love to continue helping you.

    Wishing you an Unforgettable Vacation,
