    Due to mobility issues I find the sun chairs/loungers far too low at the water parks. Are there any alternatives? Thank you

    Hi Lynn! Thanks for coming to planDisney with your mobility question - let's explore your options at the Disney Water Parks so you can keep the magic moving comfortably on your upcoming visit!

    Throughout both Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, there are complimentary loungers and chairs available to all guests, but as you already know, these generally do sit closer to the ground. One alternative available at both water parks is to rent a private cabana and seating area for your travel party, which provides more comfortable (and cushioned!) seating.

    At Blizzard Beach, there are Polar Patios available for guests to reserve for their day at the park; while at Typhoon Lagoon, they offer Beachcomber Shacks. Both provide occupancy for up to six guests in a shaded and reserved area, along with towels, a locker for personal belongings, cold water, and souvenir refillable mugs to help you stay hydrated in the sun. You'll truly feel like a VIP in either of these private oasis retreats! You will even have a dedicated Cast Member who can take your order for food and beverage options throughout the day!

    Another alternative I can recommend is that the water parks do allow ECVs and wheelchairs, so if you are traveling with your own mobility device, you are welcome to bring it into the parks as an option for your own alternative seating. Wheelchair rentals are also available at the water parks, subject to availability.

    One final suggestion I can offer is that the seating areas near the in-park dining options usually offer picnic-style tables, so this may be an option for a retreat from the water and the lower setting beach chairs and loungers found poolside. You can also read up about additional services throughout the Walt Disney World Resort for guests with mobility disabilities here to help you as you plan your trip!

    Lynn, I hope this information helps you to plan for a comfortable day basking in the sun, catching some waves, and letting your cares float away! Come on back if we can answer any more planning questions you may have; we're all ears!
