Symbol width limitation?

Hello, this may seem like a basic question for some, but I'm wondering why it seems I can't make a symbol as long as I want? The scroll bars only go so far. When I zoom out I can clearly see the stage grid going out to 21,000 pixels but I'm maxed out at 2250h x 6500w. This isn't the Document size, so how do I make this boundary larger? I have one symbol that has a lot of scenery that I would like to tween across the stage, but I quickly run out of usable screen realestate to make my symbol long enough. Is it a technical reason to limit symbol size, for render speed or something? I could split my symbol and tween the sections across the stage one-by-one, but that means more layers and more symbols when these can all be combined and tweened as a single symbol.

 

Thanks.
