    I have ankle problems, to the point where if i am standing for more than 5 minuets i feel like my ankles are broken and Im about to collapse, so, I was wondering if i could bring a very small collapsable chair, in my bag, to rest my ankles on, Please

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Claudia. I'm so glad you stopped by! It looks like you'll be arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort in just a matter of hours. How very exciting!

     I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing difficulty with your ankles. Exploring the theme parks requires a lot of walking, so I'm sure you're going to need to rest your ankles during your visit! You ask an excellent question, but unfortunately, the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules state that folding chairs are not allowed in any theme park, water park, or Disney Springs. But not to fret! Wheelchairs and Electric Conveyance Vehicles (ECVs) are available to rent from all four theme parks and Disney Springs. I think that you'll find renting a wheelchair or ECV to be very convenient - not to mention comfortable! You may also want to consider renting a wheelchair or ECV from ScooterBug, Disney's Featured Rental Provider. Rentals from the theme parks must be returned to the rental location before you exit the theme parks. If you rent from ScooterBug, however, you can keep the wheelchair or ECV with you as you travel between the theme parks and your Disney Resorts Collection hotel!

     If you're worried about putting pressure on your ankles as you wait in line for an attraction, you needn't. In most instances, you'll be able to stay seated on an ECV throughout the queue until it's time to board. It varies from attraction to attraction, though, so there may be some cases where you'll need to transfer from the ECV to a wheelchair that a Cast Member will have available for you. Be sure to keep the ECV key with you. Once you board the attraction, a Cast Member will put the ECV into neutral and move it so that it's accessible at the exit. 

     Should you have any other questions or mobility concerns, I encourage you to call Disability Services right away. They can be reached by calling (407) 560-2547. A friendly Cast Member there will be happy to assist you!

     I hope this was helpful, Claudia. I'm wishing you a magical (and comfortable!) visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
