    Hello, My daughter has broken her leg (cast below the knee). Will she be able to go on Rock n Rollercoaster? Are there any rides she won’t be able to go on? Also, for the Halloween event, will there be a designated place for wheelchair users? Thanks

    Hey there Ginnie and welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's injury especially so close to y'all's vacation. While that is, itself, a distinctly unmagical experience that doesn't necessarily mean that all pixie dust is lost. First and foremost, you should definitely consult her doctor to see if they have any concerns about certain types of motion that should be avoided. After you've gotten a clear understanding from them these are a few things to take into consideration when planning her Walt Disney World Resort experiences.

    Can she safely transfer herself into a ride vehicle? Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith has a bit of a step down to get into the car which she will have to be able to do. If she can and can also be locked into the safety restraints she should be fine. While that particular ride is definitely not a gentle float on "it's a small world," it wasn't one that I felt would put me in danger of causing further injury outside of scaring me out of my mind. The other Attraction that comes to the forefront of my mind that may potentially cause an issue is Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. There are leg constraints on that particular ride that you should be aware of that might pose a safety risk to her injury. Check with the Cast Member at the front of the ride to see if it would be safe for your girl. Walt Disney World Resort actually has a pretty detailed list of Services for Guests With Mobility Disabilities for you to check out to see if anything would be a hindrance. But once again, above anything I could tell you, you should definitely consult her doctor first.

    Now at Magic Kingdom Park, there are traditionally areas dedicated to wheelchairs and ECV users for fireworks shows. Upon arrival, I would ask a Cast Member. They will happily direct you to the exact spots. Those spots do tend to fill up fast just like everywhere else in front of Cinderella Castle during Disney's Not-So-Spooky Spectacular so you'll want to stake your claim early. 

    Ginnie, keep the magic flowing on your vacation. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back for another chat!

    Happy planning!
