    I’m visiting WDW in November 25 with my parents who will be in their early 70s. Both of them are mobile but re considering bringing a rollator to share between them as they are reluctant to use wheelchairs or scooters. Can they take it up to rides?

    Hi there, Gemma!

    I'm thrilled to hear about your upcoming multigenerational visit. You're in great hands because Walt Disney World Resort is not only one of my favorite travel destinations, but it's also one well-suited for guests of all ages and abilities. Let's discuss your parent's options for mobility and comfort during your visit.

    I reached out to a Cast Member who confirmed that though strollers have designated parking areas outside of attraction entrances, guests with mobility concerns are permitted to use wheelchairs, ECVs and/or rolling walkers while waiting in line. Once they proceed through the queue with your party, another Cast Member will be available to assist with handling mobility devices and ensuring they are available at the attraction exit. Keep in mind that though most queues are fully accessible, there are instances where guests may need to transfer or access an attraction using an alternate entrance. Cast Members can provide your parents with the appropriate instructions at the entrance to each attraction.

    As my fellow panelist Nilson shared with another guest, the parks are large and brimming with magic. Should your parents decide they need a little extra assistance, wheelchair and ECV rentals are available at the entrance of each theme park. You'll also find designated areas for parade and fireworks viewing for guests with disabilities, indicated on the park maps. I'm including the latest Guidemap for Magic Kingdom Park here to give you an idea of locations, but you'll want to pick up an updated version on the day of your visit or speak with a Cast Member. 

    I hope this helps, Gemma. Please come back and see us again with more planning questions. We're always happy to help!

    Magic and memories,
