I am a size 20 / 22, I have been 3 times before but usually at 18 / 20 and never had any problems, just didn't start the diet early enough this year 😅 I took my class to Chessington at the beginning of June prior to losing the stone I have just lost, and managed to get on everything there, - Vampire needed a tighten from the ride assistants but I was in a regular seat.

Will I be ok, I haven't worried before, but haven't done universal in ages and also now Ds is tall enough for all of the Disney rides I will be doing RnR, space mountain, Everest as we can go on as a family.

We are flying with BA this time and they are a bit more generous with the seat width.

Im a size 20/22/24 depending on where I shop and have been this size each and every visit.

I ve flown Virgin and Thomas Cook, both were fine and I managed to get on all the rides. The only ones I felt a bit squished in was the gringotts and seven dwarves mine train but otherwise no problems at all.

Go have fun! Oh and if for any reason you don't fit (but you will) cast members are very discreet so please just enjoy yourself.

I'm a size 18/20 - now I have no worries with Disney. Just more concerned with the rides at Seaworld and Busch Gardens! Any advice?
