    We’re heading to Disney World in September. My daughter IS 10 years old and has CP. She’s fully ambulatory but will tire with all the walking at WDW. I’m looking for something lightweight to allow her a break occasionally. She’s about 50” and all leg. Lo

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Shea. I am so very happy you stopped by. We're super excited to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation this fall, and super excited to help you plan for a magical visit!

      Pixie-dusted adventures in the theme parks require a lot of walking, so your daughter will surely need to rest throughout the day when she can. I have a few suggestions for you!

     Wheelchairs are available to rent at all four theme parks and Disney Springs. Length of Stay (multi-day) rentals are even available, which saves you a bit of money! Wheelchair rentals need to be returned to the rental location before leaving the destination where they were rented. This is nice in that you don't have to lug it around as you travel between the theme parks and your Disney Resorts Collection hotel, but that factor may actually be inconvenient for your family. My kids are always so tired by the end of a theme park day, that they have a hard time walking from the exit of the theme park to the resort transportation. I can only imagine how tired your daughter will be!

     You may want to consider renting a wheelchair from ScooterBug, Disney's Featured Rental Provider. This Orlando-based rental company will deliver a wheelchair right to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel! That way, you'll have it with you any time your daughter needs to rest. They have a variety of lightweight options including a pediatric wheelchair and an aluminum lite transport chair. Additionally, ScooterBug offers a Freedom Push Adaptive Needs Stroller. This might be the best fit for your daughter! The Freedom Push Adaptive Needs Stroller is designed for larger children and small adults. What your daughter might like best about this option is that she can sit in a bit of a recline and stay shaded while she rests!

     If you have other concerns about your upcoming visit, I suggest contacting Disability Services. A friendly Cast Member there will be happy to chat with you about how to best keep your daughter comfortable and adequately rested during your stay! Disability Services can be reached by calling (407) 560-2547 or by emailing disability.services@disneyparks.com.

     I hope this was helpful, Shea. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Disney vacation!
