    We will need to rent a Disney wheelchair. Do they fold up for storage in bad weather? What kind of cover should we bring for your rainy season?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to planDisney, Elizabeth. We have just loved helping you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacations! And to think - your next visit is just two weeks away now. How very exciting!

     Exploring the theme parks requires a lot of walking, so renting a wheelchair is a super great idea if you have any mobility concerns. Wheelchairs can be rented at all four theme parks and Disney Springs. I haven't rented a wheelchair before, so I checked in with a Cast Member about your question. She informed me that the wheelchairs available to rent cannot be folded. As for a rain cover, I recommend purchasing some plastic rain ponchos to take to the theme parks with you. Rather than spending money on a specially designed stroller cover, we've always used rain ponchos instead. They work like a charm! If the sky is looking ominous when we park our stroller to board an attraction, we just spread a rain poncho over it and if it starts to pour, our stroller stays covered and dry!

     One thing to keep in mind about renting a wheelchair from Disney is that it needs to be returned to the rental location when you exit the theme park. If you think you'll need a wheelchair with you as you travel to and from the theme parks and your Disney Resort hotel, you may want to consider renting a wheelchair from ScooterBug, Disney's Featured Rental Provider. It looks like the wheelchairs offered by ScooterBug can be folded.

     I hope this was helpful, Elizabeth. I'm wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
