    Hello, are you able to get on rides if you are wearing a walking boot? Thank you Roger

    Hiya Roger! Welcome to planDisney. Getting around Walt Disney World Resort and the theme parks can be tiresome on two legs and that's why I start training for all the anticipated walking months in advance.  Let's look at some ways of making it easier for you when you have to navigate the theme parks in a  walking boot.

    There are no attractions that I am aware of that will prevent you from getting on them with a walking boot. Some may be a little bit more challenging than others, such as Avatar Flight of Passage and TRON Lightcycle / Run because they have calf restraints to help you feel like you are flying on an Ikran or zooming through digital gates on The Grid. If you have any questions, always ask a Cast Member.  They will be glad to advise you on any potential challenges you may have with the attraction to manage your disability.

    The bigger challenge is going to be the all-day walking and how to manage that without being uncomfortable. The last thing you want is to be uncomfortable when you are trying to enjoy Mickey’s magic. I recommend you do an online search for Disney ECV rentals. You may rent them at each Disney theme park or through offsite third-party vendors that will deliver them to you. Having increased mobility and preventing your feet from swelling will make the day more pleasurable as you cruise from attraction to attraction. It also gives you a place to hold your backpack and other water bottles. 

    planDisney Pro Tip: The weather in May is typically very warm. I would consider bringing extra socks into the theme parks to change into in cases of severe foot perspiration. Sprinkling baby powder or Gold Bond on your foot will also help keep the moisture at a minimum. The Baby Care Centers also sell powder if you need it. Also, you may want to consider Preferred Parking or disability parking if you are using a car.

    Roger, I’m so excited about your trip next week and hope these tips will make the experience more enjoyable for you. I am happy to answer any follow-up questions so feel free to write me back directly.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
