Is there a separate loading area for the disabled? I can transfer, but I may not be quick enough or steady enough on my feet to jump on the ride if it has to be done too quickly.

You go through the regular line in your wheelchair and just before loading they will take you and your party to another loading area. You'll be able to take as much time as you need to load.

I'm leaving tomorrow and now I"m really worrying. What do you think?

I'm 5'6", 214 lbs, measurements are:

B: 43
W: 46
H; 48

I don't even want to try if there is a good chance I'll be kicked off the ride. I'll be mortified!

Think I'll fit?

Thanks for your input!

Oh, definately try! My stats are worse than yours and I fit fine in the test seats and the regular ones. Didn't even need help in getting the 3 clicks.

Thank you! I'm wondering if I fit, who does not fit? I have a super huge belly. My cleaning ladies keep asking me if I'm pregnant! I know, I am going to lose this! But not before the trip.

Thank you again!

Just got back a few days ago from Disney/Universal and we were all highly concerned about not fitting in the seats at FJ. Needless to say all of us fit and none of us were pulled out of the line and we have a couple in our group who have a big belly and the other has a big chest. If you have any questions just ask....I miss it already although it was super humid and hot and my feet hurt really bad.

How's everyone else doing that's losing weight?

Honestly, I started losing weight when WWoHP opened, because I knew I HAD to be able to ride- plus, I wanted more energy, wanted the kids to be able to fit their arms around me, etc., etc. But really? It's been so I can ride FJ I guess whatever works, right? I actually posted a pic of the ride vehicle on my fridge and in front of my scale at home; it helps keep me motivated. So far, I've lost 37 lbs. And I can't believe I'm "saying" this openly, but I was 297 and am now 260. I still have 15 months and 90 lbs to goal weight, but so far I'm staying strong.

I think a losing weight for FJ thread is a great idea!
