    My husband has had double knee replacement and has congested heart failure with a defibulator and needs a electric wheel chair our whole trip not just in the parks. Who is your preferred provider?

    Hi Patty! Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I think the beauty of Walt Disney World Resort is that everyone is able to enjoy it together.  I love that the attractions that grab my toddler's attention also keep my older children entertained, that my parents are still able to ride their favorite rides with their grandkids and that we can all enjoy extra special magical moments like Character Dining Experiences and nighttime fireworks shows as a family. 

    Walt Disney World Resort is committed to being a destination where everyone feels welcome.  Their helpful services in and around the Parks for Guests with mobility disabilities should allow you and your husband a stress-free, comfortable and, of course, magical time at The Most Magical Place on Earth.  

    While Electric Conveyance Vehicles can be rented throughout all four Theme Parks, Water Parks and at Disney Springs, I understand that your husband will be needing a scooter outside of the Parks as well.  In this case, the Disney Featured Provider, ScooterBug, is a great option. Other third-party options (available with a quick internet search) also complete length-of-stay rentals. The nice thing about renting through Disney's Featured Provider is that if you're a Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, ScooterBug will work directly with Cast Members at your Resort so that you do not need to be present with the Scooter is dropped off or returned to the company.  It's Disney magic at its finest! 

    I hope that you and your husband are able to have a fantastic trip to Walt Disney World, Patty! Take some time to check out all the attractions and shows where your husband can stay comfortably in his ECV throughout.  The new Finding Nemo: The Big Blue...and Beyond!, now open at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and Mickey's PhilharMagic at Magic Kingdom are a couple of my favorites on the list.

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
