    After hearing you need to wait in 2 hr lines to get on the new Star Wars rides at Hollywood studios. Can you bring one of the seats attached to a cane so she doesn’t have to wear herself out standing? I don’t think an electronic scooter is necessary

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Jenny!

    As one of the two doctors on the Panel, I just had to grab your question. Rest assured, Disney wants to provide the most magical of experiences for all of its Guests, including those who need mobility assistance!

    I didn't quite catch who needs the mobility cane, but they are more than welcome to bring the cane to the Parks as it is a mobility aid. I'm sure the stool portion will come in handy during the line for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Do you know, there is also a single-rider line that is significantly shorter than the standby queue? If your party doesn't mind if they don't ride together, that is something to consider! Also, to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, you will need to join a virtual queue, where you will be assigned a boarding group. Once your boarding group comes up, you will have a two-hour window to return to the attraction. The line should move a bit quicker because of the boarding groups, but you probably want to make sure the cane is handy.

    I know you said an ECV wasn't necessary, but should you need one, you can rent ECVs and wheelchairs at every Park. There are also several rental companies that will do a length of stay rental (where you can save money!) and deliver to your Resort hotel. If you use Disney's Featured Provider, ScooterBug, you do not need to be present for delivery. 

    Above all, please take advantage of FastPass+! This fantastic service allows you to skip the standby line at the attractions. Also, you can talk to Cast Members about transferring to a wheelchair during the queue. These attractions comfortably accommodate transfers.

    Jenny, if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to come back. I hope this trip is just what the doctor ordered!
