    I am coming in April and while I am young and look fine, I have a metal spine and cannot stand for a long period. If I rent a wheelchair half way through the day because I become tired can I leave it outside some of the rides That I need to walk on?

    Hi Jennifer,

    April is a wonderful time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. I love the cooler weather and the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.

    I recommend you renting a wheelchair when you first arrive at the parks. With a limited number of wheelchairs at each park, you want to make sure you have one if you need it.

    When you arrive at an attraction, it will tell you if you need to transfer or stay in your wheelchair. If you need to transfer, the cast member at the front of the attraction will tell you what to do with your wheelchair. There will be parking for you so you can grab your wheelchair and continue touring for the day.

    I also recommend you take advantage of the FastPass+ system which will help you reduce your wait time in lines. The My Disney Experience app will also show you wait times for attractions.

    Wishing you a magical day!
