    May you stay in your own wheelchair to ride it’s a small world or do you have to transfer to a WDW wheelchair?

    Hello there, Susan! Welcome back to planDisney! We appreciate you taking the time to reach back out and allowing us to help you plan another visit to Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Walt Disney World Resort does a phenomenal job providing services to their Guests with disabilities! As someone that has various medical conditions that impact my mobility, I am so thankful for the variety of accommodations and services available to assist in making each Guest’s visit magical! 

    One resource that I have found particularly helpful is the “Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities” webpage! This page contains a comprehensive list of attractions found at Walt Disney World Resort and their level of accessibility. They can range from remaining in your wheelchair or ECV, must be ambulatory, transferring from an ECV to a wheelchair, and transferring from an ECV to a wheelchair and then from the wheelchair into a ride vehicle. This list is a great way of identifying which attractions will fit your specific needs and how to navigate the boarding process! 

    I am happy to let you know that you may remain in a wheelchair for “it’s a small world” at the Magic Kingdom! If you do plan on utilizing an ECV, you will need to transfer into a wheelchair that will be provided at the attraction, though. 

    You also just so happen to be visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the most magical time of the year! The holidays at Walt Disney World Resort are a wonderful time and can be particularly magical! I highly recommend checking out some of the special events and offerings that will be taking place during your trip. My personal favorite is the Taste of Epcot International Festival of the Holidays! This celebration brings traditions from around the world to the World Showcase through storytelling, music, and food. It’s an amazing way to experience different cultures with the ones you love!

    I hope you have a magical time visiting Walt Disney World Resort later this year! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you as well!
