Where to Find Cute Plus Size Disney Clothes

I am plus sized or pooh-sized like Disney fans like to call it. The Disney store may have a few items here and there for us plus sized people, but overall it really is a SMALL world. That doesn’t mean you can’t find cute Disney clothes. These are the top 5 places where I find Cute Plus Size Disney Clothes.

Find Cute Plus Size Disney Clothes

  1. One of my favorite places is Torrid. They have the best Disney styles! They also have great sales and clearance prices. If you are looking for hair bows, jewelry, and purses they have a great Disney selection. The best prices are selections are online, but I would travel to your local store to try on some items to see what size you wear in their clothing.  10475545_hi
  2. Pinup Girl Clothing has some great dresses and skirts that have some Disneybound potential. I also like that actually have plus size girls as models so you can really see how the dress looks on you.
  3. Walmart.com has some options, basically character t-shirts,  pajamas, and scrubs. I usually find some cute items around Christmas time. Also if shop in the Walmart closet to Disney World you will find a huge selection. [Read more…]

My Experience as a Plus-Sized Princess at Walt Disney World

Though I don’t talk about it much, I am plus-sized or as the Disney community likes to say “Pooh-sized”. I also love going to Disney. I have lost 24 pounds since the beginning of the year and I am training to do my first Walt Disney World Princess 10K in 2017. Fact is, I have a lot more weight to lose and because of my medical conditions, it takes forever to lose weight. I want to share with other plus-sized princesses my experience being Plus Sized at Walt Disney World.

Plus Sized at Walt Disney World

The first thing you should know is that Disney is very accommodating to those who have more to love. I am also going to share with you my size. I am a size 24/26. I carry most of my weight in my stomach (stupid PCOS), though when you are my size the extra fat is pretty distributed. I am also very tall. I stand 5’11”, almost 6 feet with shoes.

My experience with rides is that I fit in most comfortably. There are a few exceptions.  I do not fit on 7 Dwarfs Mine Train Ride. My bum fits in the seat with not much overage, but my thighs/knees couldn’t fit under the knee bar. I waited in the standby line for 45 minutes to discover I didn’t fit. I was heart broken. The cast members were awesome though and gave me a free fastpass for any ride. Now, that is not to say that you won’t fit. I have a friend the same size as me, but shorter and she is able to ride. My husband is a bigger man and 5′ 10″ and could fit, though it was tight. I do hope the new rides they are designing for Toy Story Land and Star Wars Land are a bit bigger than the Mine Train Ride.

I am able to ride Test Track, but needed my husband to help me with buckling my seat-belt especially since they load you quickly. People were giving me looks but, I paid Disney the same money they did, so they can just wait.

Now during the hottest times of the year me and my husband get separate ride cars at the Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, and Spaceship Earth. We like being close, but close can be gross when you are sweaty and sticky.

When it comes to walking, I would recommend “training” for Disney World if you are not used to walking long distances. I wear my Fitbit and always get anywhere from 10,000 to 18,000 steps per day while at Disney. Remember to take breaks when you can. What bothers me most is standing in lines. I deal but have seriously thought about grabbing a Guest Assistance Card (GAC) to avoid it. I make sure to eat a banana each day to prevent muscle cramps and I stay hydrated. You also need to wear really comfortable walking shoes that are broken in and support your weight. I also recommend Oofos (see my review of them HERE).   [Read more…]

I am sharing with you all the Disney Lingo I know, words and abbreviations to help you successfully plan your Disney trip.
