    Just curious, is there enough room for a traverse with a rack on back for a scooter in handicap parking that won't stick out in driveway? Also what would be a good time to get there in am for a handicap space. Thank you. Going to epcot only.

    Welcome, Verna! Thanks for checking us out here at planDisney. We're so glad to have a chance to answer your question. 

    I've always visited the Walt Disney World theme parks with someone disabled in my party, so we've had several different types of vehicles and configurations. We have in the past been able to travel with a full-size van and scooter rack on the back, and we've had no difficulty parking in any of the theme park parking lots.

    Verna, it's a bit harder to pin down a time when it's good to arrive to secure disabled parking. I will say this. We were at EPCOT this past weekend, with heavy crowds due to the holiday. We got there right at park opening, and there were plenty of parking spots left in the designated disability lot. There is ample parking at EPCOT, so you shouldn't have much trouble finding a spot if you get there early.

    If early is not your style, even though you aren't going to face heavy holiday crowds during your visit, I'd hang back a bit. Go a little later in the morning or early afternoon. That way, even if the lot has filled up with morning guests, you can usually find a spot as guests head out for lunch or a swim back at their resort.

    You'll be at EPCOT during one of my favorite seasons! Although official dates aren't announced yet, you should be there during the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival! It's a feast around the world kind of festival with some awesome concerts thrown in. I hope you get to enjoy it, Verna!

    Happy planning!
