    Hi, I have a doubt. Do you offer wheelchairs as a courtesy to guests? I will be staying at a Disney resort. Thanks!

    Hi Irina!

    Welcome back to planDisney. We appreciate you using our team as a planning resource for your Disney vacations!

    Walt Disney World goes above and beyond to make sure every guest has a magical experience, including those with mobility issues. They do their very best to ensure every guest has a magical time, including accessibility options like wheelchairs. While wheelchairs aren't provided as a courtesy (meaning they're not free), they are available for rent at each of the Walt Disney World theme parks and Disney Springs. Wheelchairs as well as Electric Conveyance Vehicles (ECVs) are available for rent, ensuring mobility isn't a barrier to fun!

    If you think you'll need a wheelchair for multiple days, you can opt for a length-of-stay rental. This way, you pay just once for the duration of your stay, and each day you can pick up a wheelchair at the park entrance. Just keep in mind, that the wheelchairs and ECVs are rented on a first-come, first-served basis, so it's wise to arrive early, especially during peak times.

    For your stay at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you might consider renting a wheelchair from a third-party provider. They can offer more flexibility, as you can keep the wheelchair with you for your entire stay, including using it to explore the resort. Walt Disney World's complimentary transportation system, including buses, boats, and the Walt Disney World Monorail, is equipped to accommodate guests with mobility issues, ensuring the magic is accessible from every corner of the kingdom.

    I hope this helps with your planning!  If there are specific accommodations you need more information about, I encourage you to get in touch with the awesome team at Disability Services by emailing them at disability.services@disneyparks.com.

    Have a magical day, and happy planning!
    Diane W.
