Expedition Everest: Pooh-friendly?

I've been watching videos of the ride and noticed that the seats seem a little on the small side. Are the seats on EE suitable for "Pooh-sized" guests?

Everest is a great ride! I'm not sure I can answer your question, but you might want to check out the WDW At Large page (http://allears.net/tp/ridsiz.htm) over at allears.net. Also, there is a ride vehcile that you can "test out" (I believe) by the exit to the gift shop, if you want to check things out before lining up.

Not an issue for me...I run about 250 on a good day It is one of my favorites... In fact I find BTM at MK to be more restricting than EE if that helps...(although I never miss that one either)

No worries about EE! It's very Pooh friendly. Most of WDW is.

The only things that I don't enjoy are the turnstiles at HM. I have not done the teacups or astro-orbiter, but I hear those are not too much fun for larger folks.

I never made a graceful exit from Space Mountain or RnR, but then again, I don't know that most people do.

A probably not-so-interesting side note - the rides at the Asian parks are not very "goofy-sized" friendly. I barely fit into Space Mountain at either HK of Tokyo. There is one ride at DisneySea that has a height limit - you can't be taller than 6'4" to ride.

Cultural differences, I suppose.

My friend literally weighs twice as much as I do, so you can see why I was a bit concerned. I just want him to have a good time without feeling out of place. I've actually gone out of my way to book our dining reservations at places that don't have booths because he refuses to sit in booths due to his size. Trust me.....that took a lot of online research. Not that I minded.

Shrek is pooh sized, and we have the booth issuse sometimes...

My favorite is when the table is not bolted to the floor, and he tells the seating host "this will be fine" as he shoves the table into my gut!

That is EXACTLY what my friend did to me a couple times. But now he just complains to the host/hostess about not getting a table. He usually always jokingly says, "Does it look like a fat guy like me can fit in here?!? Can we please have a table?"

I think he should be ok on EE too as others have said as I rode it and I am well on the larger side of Pooh-sized. And can I say as a fat guy, how nice of you to think of him when making the reservations and doing that research! :-) If you need help with any other Pooh-sized concerns, ask away and it will be fun to help!

I understand that one 100% (although I wish I didn't). I feel mighty uncomfortable in booths and am always shoving the table at my poor dh!
