    Going to the Animal kingdom lodge with my family. Unfortunately, I will need mobile assistance, can the motorized wheelchair go on the boat to the hoop de doo show . I also have a great walker, can I leave the walker where I rent the wheelchair. Thanks

    Hi Celeste!

    The Walt Disney World Resort offers many services for Guests with disabilities, including offering ECV rentals in all of the parks!  When you rent your ECV, the Cast Members there will be able to hold your walker for you while you go on your magical adventures!

    Unfortunately, you will not be able to take an ECV that you have rented in a park out of that park.  You will need to return it to the location where you rented it before leaving the park.  That being said, if you have your own ECV, many of the boats throughout the Walt Disney World Resort are accessible.  Remember, some Walt Disney World Water Transportation routes may have both accessible and non-accessible boats, so you may have to wait for an accessible boat to arrive.  Feel free to ask the Cast Member at the dock if you have any questions or concerns!

    Although taking the water transportation from Magic Kingdom Park to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground to enjoy the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue should not be an issue, if weather does not permit water transportation, you can also take advantage of the Walt Disney World Bus Service!  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the Disability Services Cast Members by phone at 407-560-2547 or by email at disability.services@disneyparks.com.

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
