    Bringing 16yo with mobility limitations. She can walk, just not for long distances. We will be renting from outside the park. She doesn't like the idea of getting on the bus while in the wheelchair. Can she walk on the bus with the wheelchair folded up?

    Hey, Regina!  My mother has mobility issues as well, and she has visited WDW with us many times over the past 15 years. Although she is an older woman and her disabilities have grown more severe over the years, her prior condition was similar to the girl's you mentioned -- she could walk but not for long distances. Therefore, she would sit in her wheelchair until the bus came, and we would simply fold it up and tuck it away much like a stroller. She sat with us on the bus just like everyone else with minimal attention.  In addition, in the parks, she would sometimes "abandon" the wheelchair in favor of walking a little if the parks weren't too crowded or she could comfortably move from attraction to attraction.  When she did that, it was mainly inside pavilions at Epcot.  However, one of us was always there with the wheelchair in case she grew tired or unbalanced. I hope this relieves any worry that she may have. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
