Not all theme parks are size-friendly theme parks. Until that happens, we need to rely on the comments of other park visitors to determine where we may, or may not, have problems fitting on the rides or in the entertainment areas. Depending on how your weight is distributed and how the ride is set up, you may fit on rides that people who weigh less than you don’t fit on.
Traveling under any circumstance can be trying; but, plus size travel can be downright disheartening.
Challenges of Plus Size Travel
Plus size travel can be difficult for several reasons:
- Seating may be uncomfortable…or worse yet, it may not be structurally safe. (Breaking a chair can be really embarrassing!)
- Activities might be restricted…either by your preferences (“I don’t think I would look good doing that”) or by weight or size restrictions (“The weight limit for this ride is 250 pounds.”).
- Spontaneity is not possible…you need to do a lot of pre-planning to make sure that you will “fit” in your vacation.
But, don’t give up. Travel can be fun. And, it can be easy. You just need to plan ahead, do a little research, ask a lot of questions and don’t be afraid to step up and do what is necessary for you to have a good time.
