    Can I attach an umbrella to my motorized wheelchair. I have a feeding tube and need it blocked from direct sun light. Thank you

    Hi there, Lisa Ann - welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited that you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort at the beginning of the magical holiday season. It's such a great time to visit, and you'll also be surrounded by the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration - two magical celebrations at once!

    Umbrellas are permitted inside the four Theme Parks at Walt Disney World Resort. In my research, I haven't been able to find any restrictions for attaching them to a wheelchair, so you shouldn't have any trouble!

    I would still recommend that you reach out to the Disability Services Team, either by phone at 407-560-2547 or via email at disability.services@disneyparks.com, just to make sure all of your needs are met prior to your visit. If you know that an umbrella is all that you'll need, that's great, but this is the team that would help make any other accommodations you may need in order to have a magical experience.

    Have you ever joined in the fun of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party? The very first one of the year happens to be on the day you arrive - it would be a great way to kick start the holiday magic!

    I hope you have a fantastic vacation - please stop by if any other questions pop up as you continue your planning!
