    Is there handicap bus transportation


    Thanks for your question to planDisney!

    Disney does a great job of accommodating so many individual needs, and yes, the bus service at Walt Disney World is handicap friendly. So are the monorails, the Disney Skyliner, and most boats

    The buses at Walt Disney World are equipped with multiple bays where wheelchairs, ECVs, and other select support vehicles can be locked into place for safe travel between your resort and whatever magical destination awaits you that day. The buses have hydraulically lowered ramps for easy entrance to the bus, and in most cases, you will not have to transfer from your wheelchair to a seat during the ride. Because these are the main buses already being used at the resort for all guests, the rest of your party can travel with you on that same bus. 

    Please note that Disney asks you in your reservation to share your transportation needs, so that they can be sure to assist in whatever ways possible. 

    I find this Services for Guests with Disabilities web page is a great resource to find out more about how they can help. In your particular case, they have an even more detailed page that offers specifics on Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities. On this page they list out which park attractions allow you to remain in your wheelchair or ECV for the experience, where a transfer would be necessary, and where being ambulatory is required. 

    Do write us back with any follow up questions. We have members of the planDisney family who have mastered park days at Walt Disney World with either themselves or family members having similar mobility challenges, and we are glad to help share our experiences so that your trip is as special as it should be.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
