    In May I am visiting florida with two Special needs adult, they dont have issues walking but would need extra help getting on rides that are on water, or with rotatating plat forms, they also can not go down escalators. which rides have these?

    Hi Shari,

    Kali River Rapids in Animal Kingdom has a rotating platform and it's on water.  Spaceship Earth in Epcot has a circular moving walkway.  Those are the only attractions that I can think of that have moving walkways that rotate.

    If any moving walkway is an issue, there are a few attractions that fit that profile: Haunted Mansion, Tomorrowland Transit Authority, Peter Pan's Flight, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Space Mountain (as you exit), The Seas with Nemo and Friends, American Adventure has an escalator or stairs (but there is an elevator as well)

    Other water attractions include: Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean (also has a moving walkway at the exit of the attraction), Jungle Cruise, Tom Sawyer's Island, Liberty Bell Riverboat, it's a small world, Grand Fiesta Tour in Mexico Pavilion, Maelstrom, Living with the Land,

    Many of the moving walkways can be stopped if people need assistance.  Some, like Peter Pan or Tomorrowland Transit Authority, cannot.  I recommend getting a Guest Assistance Card at Guests Relations before you enter the park.  It will specifically state your needs, and you'll just show it to the cast member at the entrance of each attraction.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
