    How heavy are you? Some people are too large to ride Everest, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Space Mountain, and the Mad Tea Party. Most everything else you should be okay on.

    Are you very tall? A lot of times, that is more of a restriction than weight would be. I read an article on this, I'll try to find it and post it here.

    I've went with a rather large guy once -- 400 lbs, 6'1". Mad Tea Party was closed at the time, so I dunno how it would've fit him, but everything else: absolutely no problem at all.

    I've heard more complaints about the turnstyles at PotC than the rides.

    That was back in 2001. EE wasn't open yet.

    Re: Rides for BIG folks

    As a pretty large person myself (6'3" about 260), I'd have to say about all of my restrictions are for height and not weight. I can't ride Mad Tea Party, Goofy's Barnstormer, and Astro Orbitor because of leg length. And my knees get rubbed raw because I can JUST fit into the boats used for the boat attractions (POTC, Small World, El Rio Del Tiempo, etc.).

    Space Mountain is a tough one though because of my leg size. I can barely pull the lap bar down enough to ride and it's always a tight fit because I can't fit my feet in very far (Size 15 shoe). If I had more room for my feet, I think I would fit fine. But sometimes I feel like I could easily knee myself in the head on SM

    Hopefully you won't have any problems.

    Welcome to MiceChat!!!!

    While I haven't been to WDW, I do have a good friend who is 5'10" and approx 400lbs. He can ride everything at both Disneyland and California Adventure, except I think Maliboomer, Dumbo and AstroOrbiter.

    You should be just fine... have a wonderful time!!!!

    P.S. In response to your first post, if anyone on this board laughs about your question, I'll personally kick their a** for you!!!!
