My DH couldn't get on at all - he's 6'2" and was around 350 at the time. They have test seats for you to try before you get into the queue. DH went through the queue with me anyway (totally worth it!!!) and then went out the chicken exit.

Never had any trouble at Disney....and I think we've been on just about every ride.

Extremely Happy to have found this post! My teenage cousin is traveling with us, and this was a concern of mine. She is already self conscious with her body image and I was worried the size of the seats on some of the rides may be a problem.

Big Girl Short Legs!

I just got back from Disney World. At a 3x I could fit on all the rides. But Test Track has a very tall step down and back up to get in and out of the car. The seat belt fit, but when I got out the step up was so steep and my knees where rubbery from the ride...I fell on my knees. Not cool.

So if you are a big girl and 5 foot four, get into the car last so other's in your party will be out and ready to help you with your step out!

Also, you won't find clothing to fit in the myriad of shops. There was 1 hoodie in the Downtown Disney shop. Get your Disney shirts from your normal clothier before you go.

1X s reasonably common. 2X is a bit less common. 3X is rare, but you can find a few here and there (I came home with two). And we even managed to find a single 5X, in the shop attached to DisneyQuest.

Even without getting lucky in the shops, Design-A-Tee offers larger shirts, up to 5X (thugh at 4X and above, the only base color available is grey). They don't even charge extra for larger shirts, compared to a normal M or L sized shirt.

Has anyone of size ridden Seven Drawfs Mine Train? I'm worried the 4xl DH will have issues and we have three fast passes for it.

Yep, my DH and I both have. We had to ride alone as we did not fit together in the car. I was able to keep my knees together and sit on one side of the car, but DH was not able to and had to ride in his own car and straddle the lap bars.

Thanks that helps. It is really odd that Disney has gone backwards on this one. Usually we fit no issue. Except Thunder Mountain.
