    We are going to Disney 3/2014. My 7 yr old is special needs, and we will be using a stroller for him. Can he sit in his stroller while waiting in the lines. He sometimes refuses to walk, I wasn't sure if they would allow them in the lines.

    Hi Crystal,

    Generally speaking, all strollers are required to be parked in the designated areas outside each attraction and are not allowed into the queue. This is because there is nowhere to put the strollers once you load onto the attraction and many of them exit in different locations than where they load. It sounds as through your sons stroller may serve a similar purpose as a wheelchair, enabling him to sit comfortably. Due to the fact that you said he has special needs, there may be an alternative for him. I recommend that you stop by Guest Relations when you first arrive and speak with them about a "Guest Assistance Card". You can ask if they can make an exception for him to have his stroller be treated like a wheelchair so that you can use the wheelchair accessible ramp and entry when there is one available. This way he could remain in his stroller when you are in line. If this isn't an option, they may have other options for you.

    Hope this helps and that you have a wonderful vacation with your son,
