    Made reservations Not realizing that we arrive on Easter. Now that we will be there during a VERY busy period, I will have to rent a wheelchair as I cant stand for very long but I don't want to 'abuse' system. I want to wait in regular lines. Possible?

    Hi Laura ~

    It is always great to hear from another Georgia Peach! Easter week is typically busy but no worries - you'll have an amazing trip. Here are some tips for traveling to Disney World during peak seasons.

    Most of the queues at Disney are now mainstreamed to accommodate Guests traveling in wheelchairs or Electric Conveyance Vehicles (EVCs). If there are queues that require Guests in wheelchairs or ECVs to enter through alternate queues, you can see a Cast Member for assistance. Depending on the wait time, they may give you a return time to come back to the attraction based on the current wait time. There are only a few of these and most of them are found at the Magic Kingdom like "it's a small world".

    Here is some information regarding attractions for Guests with Mobility Disabilities including those that allow Guests to remain in their wheelchairs or ECVs, those that require Guests in ECVs to transfer to wheelchairs to board, and those that require Guests to be mobile to enjoy.

    For those attractions that require Guests to be mobile, keep in mind that if you are able to transfer and need physical assistance, someone in your party will need to assist you. Cast Members are not allowed to physically lift or assist Guests when boarding. They will be happy to move your wheelchair once you have boarded the attraction and will have it waiting for you afterwards.

    Here is some additional information for Guests with Disabilities that may be helpful to you if you decide that you need additional assistance.

    Please feel free to visit again. I'm hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
