Krr?

I haven't been on Kali in close to 10 years. I'm a 26/28, mostly butt/hips/thighs but some belly too. Will I have issues fitting? Also, my BF will be with me and wears a 38 pants, will we be able to ride together?

TIA!

You may have to ride it by yourself. Its really according to your companion. Hubby wears a 2X...they separate us into different seats.

I rode with my sister who is more of a XL and we rode together in the same pair of seats.

Edit: I'm also a 26/28 and it is all somewhere in my torso and hips. I have the skinniest legs.

But if I ride alone I will fit? I don't mind riding alone as long as I fit in the seat and can buckle the belt!

I am interested in the little kid rides too like the tea cups, dumbo, flying carpets etc I have two small children that will want me to go on stuff with them. As well as the grown up rides and anything in the middle lol. Thank you so much :-)
I just came back from my trip last week and I am 5'3 and wear a 26/28, no problems whatsoever on any of the rides! Have fun and don't even begin to worry about that, dear! You will definitely fit into anything you choose to ride.

So is there anything I should avoid? I'm betting Space Mountain is a no-go since I don't have strong legs and I've heard you need to get out pretty quickly. We're doing all 4 parks.

It's funny, I normally just go and ride a few things. This year we are going with another couple (no kids woohoo!) and know that I will be riding stuff I haven't been on in 10 years so I'm not sure how I fit!

I rode Space Mountain and fit quite easily. However, since I'm fuller in the hips and "bottom" I sit a little higher and felt like I could flying out and every little jerk in the ride! Haha while this might be exciting for some, it left me a little wobbly when I got off :/ as far as getting out quickly, I didn't notice having to jump out or anything.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back from your recent trip, KristenRB!

We'll be doing WL & MNSSHP in September, too, but a little before your trip

Would you mind listing the rides you went on? I'm probably not alone in having some specific ride questions for someone who has just been there.

Like some others, I've been wondering if the new-ish lap bars on Splash Mountain pull down and need to lock in place. I'm also wondering about the seat belts on Dumbo and the Magic Carpets. Are they one strap per person, or one long strap per Dumbo/row in carpet?

Thanks for any info you can offer!

I know im not the person you were responding to, but thought i'd add my info in case it might help you. I am a size 26/28 all hips, belly. my daughter and I rode splash mtn together, she is around a size 18/20 and the lap bar did lock a little but we still had room to pull it in ( if that makes sense) when she saw the drop off the bar suddenly got tighter and rammed in my gut lol. but otherwise no issues there. We also rode the magic carpet and it was one belt for 2 riders and we had no issue getting it to click. here are the rides we rode in each park:

Epcot: Test track - I was a little cramped in this one, mainly because im 5'10 and long legged!

animal kingdom-kali river rapids -no issues

magic kingdom- splash mtn ( see above)
magic carpets (see above)
haunted mansion- no problems
little mermaid- no issues

Hollywood studios- star tours -no issues

New to the boards and just found this thread. So glad I did. I'm Pooh sized and was a little worried about whether I would be able to fit on some of the rides. It was great to be able to get all this cool information.

Hey! Sorry for just now posting back.

I went on everything without a problem, except for one. lol

DHS
Rockin Rollercoster
Tower Of Terror
Star Tours (this was a little difficult for me.the seats are small and the seatbelt is a little harder to get to to fasten. Embarrassing, but still managed to fit)

MK
Haunted Mansion
Splash Mountain
Big Thunder Railroad
Space Mountain
Pirates of the Carribbean

Epcot
Mission Space
Spaceship Earth
Test Track
Maelstrom

I'm only 5'3 and wear a 26/28. So if I can fit, anyone can. I had so much fun and I hope this helps anyone that will be worried.

I couldn't believe it until we tried it, but my DH and I, plus our 5 month old, were able to get into a dumbo car together just recently! I said we were going to try and if it didn't work then we would switch out and ride 2 times.
I am 5'1'' and wear a 24/26 (all ever, esp. stomach, hips and butt) and my DH is 5'10'' and wears a 46 (all belly). It was VERY tight, but still had fun and got to go on all together as a family.
I have gotten to the point that I just try it out now, instead of stressing too much. Believe me, it took years for me to get to that point. Most of the time, there have been no issues... except those stinkin old turnstiles!
