    Help! My bf & I are heading to WDW 5/28-6/3 for his 1st trip, but I recently broke my ankle & can't walk on it for 6 weeks. I will have crutches for short trips but need some suggestions for the long days in the parks. Please help me save our vacat

    Oh Kristin!  I'm so sorry about your ankle!  Look at the bright side, though.  Your vacation is soooo not ruined.  Each park has wheelchair rentals, and I believe that the majority of the rides (even Space Mountain) will be able to accommodate you.  As long as you can get yourself in and out of the chair and onto the ride, you're fine.

    By the way, some of the rides even have wheelchair entrances which means shorter waits.  Most times wheelchairs enter through a ride's exit.  Another thing, there are several spots throughout the parade routes that are specifically designated for wheelchairs.  You can ask a Castmember for information or pick up a Guests with Disabilities Guide when you get to the park.

    So you see?  Everything will be fine!  I hope you have a magical time on your vacation!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
