    Both of my parents need to use ECVs and we are looking at renting offsite from ScooterBug. Can both ECVs fit on the same bus to the parks or will we need to plan time for multiple buses each day? We are staying at Art of Animation.

    Hi Janaye!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Vacations to the Walt Disney World Resort with my parents have been simply the BEST. As hard as it can be to plan, the memories are priceless.

    While I have seen two Electric Conveyance Vehicles (ECVs) accommodated on some buses, there may be other guests using ECVs also in line for the bus transportation. So, you may have to plan to split your party or just wait for the next bus. Having said that, I love Disney's Art of Animation Resort and have been pleased with the complimentary Disney Bus Transportation to and from the resort hotel.

    At Disney's Art of Animation Resort, you will also have access to the whimsical and super fun Disney Skyliner Transportation. Although my family was not exactly thrilled to ride for the first time, they gathered their courage and we had a quick trip from the Skyliner Station near the International Gateway at EPCOT to Disney's Riviera Resort where we had a lovely breakfast with Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. We also typically budget for a few rides using the Disney Minnie Van™ Service Connected by Lyft. This service has alleviated so much stress for me as we travel to pre-park opening advanced dining reservations.

    There are a range of services for guests with mobility disabilities. We have found the Attraction Access Category list helpful in determining which attractions will allow guests to remain in the ECV and which require the guest to transfer to a ride vehicle. Both Peter Pan's Flight and the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover have moving platforms that guests must navigate to board and exit the attraction.

    Finally, take some time to review the other services for guests with disabilities. When my husband had to use an ECV on a prior trip, we found the Guides for Guests with Disabilities helpful. The Magic Kingdom park guide for guests with disabilities, for example, includes more information on accessible restrooms and denotes show areas that have viewing spots for guests with disabilities.

    Janaye, I do hope this helps. Consider yourself pixie dusted with a little extra patience as you plan!

    Magic and memories,
