Hey guys,

Just thought I would let you know how I got on in Orlando. I am 5'8 and a size 20-22 on the bottom and a chest size of 38 K. I had no issues on any rides in Disney I fit on everything I tried. In universal I couldn't go on forbidden journey, the overhead restraints just wouldn't close over my chest I tried the test seats outside and a cm helped. But I could still walk the castle tour and just exit before the ride.
I also tried the test seat outside gringotts with a cm, It wouldn't close on me but they are the smallest fitting seats so what he did was check with the second seat how much more room I would need to get the green light and said I would be fine in the bigger seats in row 3 and 6. I rode the ride with no issues in the bigger seat.
I hope that helps someone

Hope this

I know the thread title says "Disney for the larger person" but has anyone got any info about Busch Gardens ? All the rides at BG look like coasters with 'over the shoulders' type restraints (which I never fit into very well). Is that correct ?

I have struggled manly with the flight, being really uncomfortable having a large bottom. So I am on a mission to loose weight using my 2018 weight challenge with Facebook buddies.

That's now my target for next August then. Thank you. I've never had a trouble with Disney but want to ride everything at Universal so I have a lot of work to do!

Mobile So nervous

So we arrived in Orlando yesterday. Today we're doing Universal IoA. I am absolutely terrified and feel sick. First ride the group wants to do is Hulk? Will I fit on this, or anything in that park? I am a size 22/24 on top but 24/26 on the bottom. I carry my weight on my tummy, hips and huge legs. Will the modified seats accommodate me or am I too fat for those too? Which rows/seats are the modified ones, and how do you get to them discreetly?

I am a size 22 and always fitted on everything. I didn't even know there was certain bitter seats until I came home and read about them so you are definitely guided tour them discreetly. Have a great day and try noto to worry. All my weight is bump, hips and theighs and I was fine.
