    La Nouba for Pooh-Sized People

    Hi, I'm visiting Disney World with my fiance in February and for Christmas he got us tickets to see La Nouba, which I have ALWAYS wanted to see. In researching a bit online I'm terrified that I won't fit into the seats at the theater. I'm 5'11, around 350, most of which is in my hips. I fit in airplane seats ok but need a seatbelt extender. I don't mind being uncomfortable, I got myself into this mess so now I have to deal.....but it will be so humiliating if I am unable to fit at all.

    Has anyone had an issue with the seats or is there anything I can do to prepare (other than diet, of course, which I can only do so much of before February). I'm so worried. Thanks for your tips!

    I definitely know what you mean about being nervous about fitting into things. From the sound of it I think I'm about the same built as you. My weight is in my hips to makes it hard to fit in seat and stuff. But I usually get really nervous and then find out it isn't all that bad, each person is different and look at things different. Just be nervous and go and have fun! I personally have never seen La Nouba so I really don't know what the seats are like. Make the best of things! Good luck and have fun!

    FYI: Go to All Ears, this page: WDW At Large - One Size Does Not Fit All!

    and there are also many sub topics on the left of the page.

    My husband and I have seen this twice. He is 6'4" and was about 360 the last time we went (also just barely fits in airline seats and needs the extender) He fit fine in the seats and was pretty comfortable. I always get an end seat so he can kind of lean out because he has wide shoulders and we don't like impacting to people around us. I totally understand the nervousness, we always have it but have never had too much trouble in WDW. Disneyland is another question as it was built so long ago.

    You are going to to REALLY enjoy the show! Best money we ever spent!!!! Enjoy your trip!!!!
