    My daughter broke her knee last weekend and is wearing a brace that keeps her leg straight. We have a trip scheduled for Hollywood Studios next week. Are there any rides shell be able to ride with her leg straight?

    Hello there, Kelly! Welcome back to planDisney! Thank you for taking the time to reach back out and ask another wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    I’m so sorry to hear about your daughter’s injury! It’s so unfortunate that she had an accident right before your vacation but, hopefully, we can provide some tips that will help make her visit just as magical! 

    If you haven’t looked into this already, you may want to consider renting either an Electrical Conveyance Vehicle (ECV) or wheelchair for your daughter during your visit. Even if she is able to get around at home, Guests tend to walk five miles or more daily during their visits to Walt Disney World Resort! This is quite a bit of walking on an injured knee so she may benefit from having a bit of a break from all that activity. Wheelchairs and ECVs may be rented at all theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs on a first-come, first-serve basis. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you will find the rental location on the right-hand side of the street as soon as you enter the park. 

    While I don’t have a list of attractions that will allow your daughter to keep her leg straight, there is a list of attractions and their level of accessibility on the “Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities” webpage! It is a fairly safe bet that attractions that allow Guests to remain in their wheelchair or ECV will not require your daughter to move her leg. If there are specific attractions outside of this list that she is interested in experiencing, you can always stop by a specific attraction and ask a Cast Member if it can be experienced with your daughter’s limited mobility. In some cases, there may be specific seats or areas your daughter can be seated that do not require her leg to be moved. 

    I hope this information assists you in planning a magical visit with your daughter! Please let us know if we can provide any additional information or answer any other questions for you regarding your visit!
