    I AM A PLUS SIZED 35 YEAR OLD WOMAN AND STILL YOUNG AT HEART VISITING WDW FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MAY 09 WILL I BE ABLE TO ENJOY ALL OF THE RIDES AND ATTRACTIONS OF THE THEME PARKS AND THE WATER PARKS?

    Hi, Veronica!  I have traveled to Walt Disney World most of my adult life as a "pooh sized" person, and I can tell you that even at my highest weight, which was over 300 pounds, I was able to ride everything I wanted to ride and see all of the attractions I wanted to see.  If there is ever a question in  your mind, absolutely ask the cast member at the start of the line for some reassurance.  I also have told the cast member asking how many people were in my party that I had one extra person with me, so that always gave me additional room.  If it was a seat that looked like it comfortably accommodated 2, I always said I was a party of 2 to have my own seat.

    There is a really good article at www.allearsnet.com about traveling to Disney as a plus size person.  Use the search tool at the top of the page and search for Walt Disney World at Large.  There are great tips and good information to make you feel more comfortable about your trip.

    You will see people of all sizes loving Disney World.  Go and have a great time!
