    Are canes with seat attached stilled allowed at WDW parks?

    Hi Janie!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney to ask your question about mobility devices, I am happy to help you today.

    In general, canes are allowed as mobility devices to be brought into the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.  Although a folding cane is not specifically listed as one of the prohibited items in the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules, folding chairs are listed.  However, I have a solution for you!  Instead of a folding cane, I suggest you bring what is called a rollator with a folding seat.  A rollator is a form of a walker but for those people who do not need a traditional walker because they are more mobile and have better balance.  Rollators are allowed at the Walt Disney World Resort, and I think would give you much more flexibility.

    Janie, I also want to let you know about the multiple Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities at the Walt Disney World Resort.  There is a lot of information and additional links embedded within the previous page and I hope you take time to look into all the available services including ECV rental.  Janie, I am a Physical Therapist and in general I recommend to my patients to take at least one "step up" with mobility devices whenever doing an activity that is beyond their normal activities of daily living.  In your case, you will be visiting the Magical Walt Disney World Resort!  There is a lot of walking that most people do not do in their daily lives when vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resort.  So, for Guests who normally use a cane, I often suggest they consider a rollator, even if it is just for part of the time and they don't use it every moment of their vacation.  Guests who use a walker or rollator, I suggest considering using a form of wheelchair or ECV.  A close friend of mine has a spouse with mobility disability and uses lower leg braces for everyday use but doesn't use other assistive devices.  However, I recommended that they rent an ECV, and they were so glad they did!  They were hesitant at first, and I understand why as it can be difficult to think of yourself as "needing" an ECV when you don't normally use one.  However, when you think of it as "treating" yourself to using an ECV in order to save your energy and thereby increasing your vacation enjoyment that changes how you look at it.  After all, you are going on vacation, and you deserve to get maximal joy out of it!

    I hope this information helps you with your vacation planning.  Please come back and visit us here again at planDisney with all of your future questions!
