    I have a broken ankle and will be renting a scooter. Since I have to go through the handicap line, is there anything I have to do ahead of time? Can my family go through the same line?

    Hiya, Karen!

    Well, gosh, I'm so sorry not only that you've got a broken ankle, but that you'll be visiting Walt Disney World while you're still recovering! The good news is, the theme parks are still totally doable with the bad ankle, it just might be a bit different than it has been on other trips. 

    Many queues at the attractions at Walt Disney World are accessible by guests with mobility devices, such as wheelchairs and scooters. That means that you'll just go along with your party in the regular line, and when it's necessary for you to leave your scooter, the Cast Members will direct you where you can leave it so you'll have it when you return. For some attractions - mostly shows - you won't even need to leave your scooter

    There may be instances where you cannot use the scooter in the general queue. A Cast Member will be there in those cases to give you a return time for that attraction. Your return time will be based on the current wait time at the attraction, and you and your family will be able to return and go in together without having to wait in line.

    If you need to rent a scooter - or ECV - at Disney World, know that they are available at each of the parks. You can also use a courtesy wheelchair in the parking lot to get to the rental counter.

    I did the parks myself about a year ago after dislocating my knee, so I know it can be done, Karen! Just be careful.

    I hope you have a speedy recovery!
