Thanks!
Hi I am a pooh sized girl 5'5" 279 lbs and rode sum of all fears in March 2012 with no problems.

You seem to be about the same size as me (5'5" 275 lbs) so I hope I don't offend you with this question

How big is your bust area? I find that on most rides that I feel constricted in it isn't because of my waist/stomach but rather my bust area. I'm a D cup so not huge but I guess its just a smidge bigger than being able to ride comfortably. Did you have this problem on sum of all thrills? Thanks for your help!

I understand completely!! I am a D sometimes DD and over the shoulder restraints often are horrible. However I went on Sum of all fears with my DD10 now 11 and had a blast. So relax and enjoy it.

my bust area is D sometimes DD and I completely understand feeling constricted. However I felt fine on all of the Disney rides and enjoyed myself immensely.

May 2013 will be my first trip to Disney World. Taking my DD12, I am so worried about not being able to ride all the rides with her. I don't want to disappoint her.

Thanks! I never have a problem except rides with over the shoulder restraints. All other rides I'm able to sit and ride comfortably. Now I'll give Sum of All Thrills a try!

Honestly, I don't care if I ride HM or not because I hate it, but DH likes it and feels guilty every time he rides without me.

If for some reason you do try, but have to take the chicken exit, they make you walk back up that narrow section of the queue where they've taken the line down to single file. You are literally a salmon swimming upstream against a bunch of cranky salmon. And the CMs are no help and quite rude about it. It's so annoying that I tell people to avoid it unless it's on their must-do list.
Has anyone else had problems with Haunted Mansion? I'm about the same size as a lot of you here and would be disappointed if we couldn't ride this. Thanks!

I was just there the Sept 11th for MNSSHP and then again on Sept 12th for our day at MK.... during that time.... rode HM a total of 4 times. I found the seats very spacious and not understanding the fuss.... yes the ride hit my belly as it closed, but no worse than any other ride... I am a size 28! Carry my weight evenly distributed in the 3 major areas.... bust, belly and bum!!! Can't really say I have had an issue fitting any ride at Disney!

I've never had a problem on HM. Both DH and I can ride in the same doom buggy comfortably and the bar closes. We are also very Pooh sized, I'm around a 22 and DH is around a 3xl.

Great Thread

This is a great thread!!!!

It is nice to actually see that you are not the only "crazy" one when planning a trip! My husband tells me I worry too much and that I have OCD. He is probably right.

DH and I are both pooh sized (he is 3xl and I am 28-30). I haven't had any problems with any of the rides I wanted to go on.

I did notice the lapbar on HM being a little more snug when we went in Dec 2011, but it still closed.

The walking around has gotten easier for me as I have started doing Zumba (love it) and have lost 80 lbs in the last 15 months!!!!

I always wear comfy tennis shoes while there.

I also swear by wearing a sports bra! It keeps everything supported and in place and keeps everything fairly dry. I also put some goldbond powder on. I am definately going to check out Body Glide.

Keep all of the support going!!!

Thanks all for the tips! I started the Dukan Diet this week and am down 8 pounds! I hope to loose 20 before our trip in 42 days. I think I'm closing in on size 22. I think I should be okay on the rides. Now to get walking so I don't die from all of the walking.

Hi,
My DBF is pooh-sized. I was wondering if any of you could tell me if the car booths at Sci-Fi are about the same size of most regular restaurant booths or not? He sits fine in almost all restaurant booths, but I was looking at some pictures, and they appear as though they may be smaller which has me a little worried. I would like to eat there, but don't want to if it may turn into an uncomfortable or potentially embarrassing situation for him.
Thanks!

I am wondering this myself - my DH usualy is uncomfortable in a regular restaurant booth.

I have another question. I am still pooh sized, but have recently been really sick with GERD and have lost about 50 lbs since the middle of August, so now am about 202lbs. We are going to Sea World in San Antonio in a few weeks - do you think I'll be able to go on the rides or do I still need to worry? Im wearing an XL top and old navy size 16 jeans.....thoughts anyone????

As we just ate there last week I will chime in and i think the booths are smaller than "regular" booths. My husband and I ate in the booth but is was not roomy an if I can much more weight I may not go back. But as a side note there are other tables that are normal size if eating in the car is unimportant to you. Good luck
