Ugh! You all have to stop recommending this pit! Although, I did love hearing Scopa groan in the background when you mentioned it. Good for him!

There is a reason most of us call the place AWFUL House! ;)

Geoff from Michigan asked about Star Wars rides for his trip in December. Star Tours was mentioned, but if I recall correctly Star Tours should be down for its 2.0 refurb in December. So if Jedi Training Academy is still open during the refurb it will be his only Star Wars ride.

Regarding weight limits on rides - I myself am "Pooh Sized" and have never had a problem with any ride at Disney World and have never seen a weight limit posted on any rides and have never been turned away. I have seen many people larger than me ride at Disney World. Is every ride comfortable? No, but I can ride everything and tolerate it for a little while. (I think some rides are uncomfortable for anyone of any size such as Star Tours, Astro Orbiters, etc)

A few tips to help Pooh Sized folks - If the ride has a seat belt such as Test Track - pull the seat belt out before you sit down then buckle yourself in. When you go through the turnstiles at Haunted Mansion - go in sideways (the turnstile is narrow) or ask the Cast Member to let you in through the handicap accessible entrance (you should not even have to explain why) On any coasters, ask the cast member to seat you in the row with the most room (usually the back or front row)

I can say that I have not heard such great things about accessability for Pooh Sized people at other parks such as Universal or Sea World. I believe some of their rides do have restrictions.

For Disney, you should be fine on everything! Have fun and don't worry!

What's that smell? I bet the smell in the area of Muppetvision was coming from Mama Melrose's. I know they have wood grilled items on the menu and I've noticed a fantastic smell around there and always though that's what it was.

Thanks for reading my question, but you misspelled my name! It's Jeff, not Geoff!
