Pooh Sized and Parasailing!? Please help!

Hi folks! I am not sure where to post this questions, so I thought I would start here. I head out for my magical vacation on Thursday and was wondering if any of my fellow Pooh sized people out there have been parasailing at Sammy Duvall's at the Contemporary? I'm a little nervouse and just looking for reassurance...thanks in advance!

I'm formerly pooh sized (had WLS just over a year ago) and while I did not parasail at Disney, I did on my honeymoon in Aruba, and I will say, they didn't bat an eye, and I would guess I was about a size 20 at the time. So, I have to imagine you'll be just fine!! Have fun.

Accordign to their website, parasailing has a total weight of 130 lb minimum and 330 lb maximum. If you fit in between there, you're good to go.

http://sammyduvall.com/parasailing/ look in the pink Requirements box.

Sorry but what is a pooh sized person? Do you mean height? I've seen children parasailing, though I'm not sure I remember the specific height requirements.

Nevermind, not even Disney's website mentions a height requirement

"Pooh sized" is how the dis discusses larger people (who look like pooh ) Pooh sized can be 150 lbs if you are really short. Or 350 lbs or anything in between. You just have to be "round."
