Plus sized clothing in the parks?

Share & Discover More 13 Apr 2015
I'm wondering if there are any stores in the parks where one can buy larger sizes of clothing? Particularly t-shirts. I can usually wear a size L or XL in tops. Last time we were there, I bought an XL Griffindor tee. It fit OK pre-wash, but once washed (in cold water and dried on low heat) it man...

    Agree, and like that train of thought. BUT I remember 2 stinkers from 2013 (resident evil and...frantic? Might not be that...escape space convicts or whatever). So it can happen. I like risks, i like new IP's, I like the designers having leeway, BUUUUUT, for a guy who may never visit again, I l...

    I'd quite like to see some houses based on Asian horrors, The Ring etc. (could have been done though?) I was sad I missed last years AvP, but then felt like they'd missed a trick when they didn't make it a solely Alien based house, which I think could have been terrifying. Thinking about scar...

    As someone who IS paying thousands of dollars...I'm still hopeful! And I'm incredibly excited. And maybe that's because I actually love TWD still, after all this time, and definitely because I loved the zombie themes and settings from 2013...   Luckily, I wont ever suffer HHN burn out, or...
