How about if they make the ride vehicles with a little bit more leg room.

We just saw West Side Story, Young Frankenstein (did not realize how PG13 it was and had DD11 along) and The Sound of Music this summer. My company sponsored a Sensory Friendly afternoon showing of The Sound of Music that was so good for children with Autism or other Intellectual or Developmental challenges.

My point is, Disney, and Orlando would attract top talent. My guess is they could create a whole district around the "On DS and Off DS" District.

Something besides "more places to spend money"

Try being 6'6" and 280#....

My knees hit in BTMRR...and it hurts. Same with EE but at least EE has a very big seatback. I am close to not fitting in FOP (if my knees ever get worse for bend angle I will be in trouble.

If you saw me in RNRRC you would think the Safety harness is not engaged is sticks up so much because of my height..

More room, especially leg room but girth room also, would be good. 7DMT is really difficult for anybody over 200 pounds or 5’11” from what I’ve seen. There have to be seat designs and restraint system that work for all sizes.

Slinky dog is much more comfortable than 7DMT and it is supposed to be an “all ages” kind of thing, too, I believe.

And Pirates doesn’t seem to have the leg issues that Small World has.

Saw that Aladdin three times in California, it was very very good.

I imagine that if they did a full-length Broadway-style Lion King at Disney Springs it would do very well. I would pay good money to see it.
