    My elderly mother will be traveling w/ us to WDW this summer. She will be using an ECV due to a foot and knee injury. She loves to ride all of the rides. Are there separate lines for persons w/ disabilities? Can an ECV navigate through regular lines?

    Hi Kim! Disney has been busy over the past year making new queue areas for their attractions that will be able to accommodate those guests who need to remain in wheelchairs and ECV's. They have widened the area and added some new interactive things to do while you wait.

    The best thing for you to do when you reach a park is to spend a few minutes at the Guest Relations area. The cast members there will outline each attraction so you can note which might require a Guest Assistance Card to enter in a different location and those where you follow the rest of the guests through the queue. A few attractions would require your mom to get out of the ECV to transfer to a ride vehicle and they can alert you to the list of those as well.

    I am sure this will be a very magical trip with you. My mother's last visit was at the age of 89 last Christmas and I know she cherishes her memories of Disney over the years.
