  • Hi, Michelle! I have great news for you! I am an inch shorter than you and weigh about the same, and I fit on EVERY RIDE at all four parks! It took me a long time to get the nerve to try Mission:Space at Epcot.  It was my last ride to conquer because I was afraid with the ride vehicle's configuration that I would not fit, but I did! You will not have any trouble on the Haunted Mansion.  It is a lap bar that just comes down as far as it can and then rests in place.  Pirates of the Caribbean are just bench seats, so that's no issue.  The Tower of Terror has seat belts, but the key is to pull it all the way out until it stops before you sit down, take your seat still holding it all the way out, buckle it, and then let it retract into place.  The buckling will be easier, and you don't have to struggle pulling it out and releasing it over and over to get it to fit. I think your question was cut off, so if you have other specific rides to ask about, please write back. Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
