    Can I bring a cane that also has a small seat attached?

    Hello there, Darcy!

    My family has been planning multi-generational Walt Disney World Resort vacations for years. This also means that everyone in my family has different needs when it comes to waiting in lines or walking around the four theme parks all day. We’ve found that having at least one or two sit-down advanced dining reservations for each day of our vacation helps everyone take a little break to rest their legs and get out of the sun. 

    I’m happy to help answer your specific question. Overall, Disney does allow Guests with mobility issues to have assistive devices, such as canes, in the theme parks. Before entering the theme park, I recommend stopping at the Guest Services window next to each of the theme park entrances to explain your situation. The Cast Members there will be able to help determine whether you can bring in your specific cane. In addition, you may want to speak with them to find out if you are eligible to participate in Disney’s Disability Access Service (DAS), which is available for Guests having a difficult time standing in lines for several reasons. If you are interested in this service, I suggest applying for this option online before you visit.

    I will flag, though, that according to Walt Disney World Property Rules, Guests cannot bring folding chairs into the theme parks. Therefore, it will be up to Guest Services and security at the front gate to determine whether they consider your cane a folding chair and whether you can bring it into the theme parks.

    Worst case scenario, I recommend bringing a backup regular cane that you can store in a locker rental if you can bring your cane with a seat into the theme parks. Disney theme parks also have the option to rent wheelchairs if this is something that you think could help your situation. I’m sorry I can’t give you a more concrete answer!

    May the magic be with you!
