    My daughter has a infusion chest port, so will she be unable to ride on rides that would press against it. Which rides have a shoulder/chest harness?

    Hi Michelle, thanks for bringing this very important question to planDisney!

    While I don't have the title of “personal healthcare companion” like Baymax, I am familiar with the chest port you describe in your question. I can gladly tell you that there are very few rides at Walt Disney World Resort that have a shoulder harness that would prevent your daughter from experiencing the attraction. 

    In EPCOT, Mission: SPACE has a shoulder harness that comes down over your head. Test Track does not have a shoulder harness, but the outside seats of the ride vehicles have shoulder-to-lap belts like what you would find in your car which may rub against your daughter’s port site. The center seats on the Test Track ride vehicles have lap belts, so that does give your daughter another option for riding. 

    In Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith is the only attraction that has a shoulder restraint, however, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is currently closed for refurbishment until Summer 2023.  

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Magic Kingdom Park do not have any attractions that use shoulder restraints. I would like to note that TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise does not have shoulder restraints but you do lean forward on the Lightcycle. There may be no pressure on your daughter's chest at this attraction but there is a test vehicle outside of the entrance to the attraction queue where you can check ahead of time that she can comfortably ride the Lightcycle. TRON Lightcycle / Run also offers accessible seats with pull-down lap bars as an option for those who are unable to ride on the Lightcycle. Just let a Cast Member know that you’d like an accessible seat and they will accommodate you. 

    Of course, if you are uncertain about any attractions, I recommend speaking with your daughter’s doctor prior to your visit about what is appropriate for her to experience. You can easily find images of the attraction vehicles online to share with your daughter’s doctor if you’d like that extra reassurance. And I’d also like to make you aware of the First Aid locations in each of the theme parks and water parks where you can speak to nurses for medical assistance if needed. 

    Although my answer listed attractions that you may want to avoid, I hope it showed you how much your daughter will be able to do at Walt Disney World Resort. I know you and your daughter will have a magical time on your vacation, Michelle! Please visit me again at planDisney with any future questions you have!

    I hope you are “satisfied with your care,”
