Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • I'm a heavy set mom and I'm planning a trip to WDW with my little girl and i was wondering are the rides typically small scale for seats or are they generous enough for larger people? Can you recomend rides that may be more comfortable for larger people?

  • Disney does a great job of accommodating the needs of guests with all shapes, sizes and abilities. There are very few rides and attractions at WDW that prove challenging for plus-size people. You should be able to experience almost everything at Walt Disney World. To help you navigate I do have some resources for you:

    1. PassPorter's Open Mouse for Walt Disney World. This is the best guidebook going for people with any sort of physical issue, including size. Every ride at WDW is described in great detail, including the size and type of seating and the type of restraint used on the ride. This book is available through and many larger bookstores.

    2. The independent website Search there for a great article called "WDW at Large" and also for "At Large" trip reports. Lots of practical tips!

    Additionally, you may find the following Moms Panel questions helpful: HERE, HERE, and HERE.

    Good luck with your planning.
