    Was passed in boot by my doctor, visiting in 2 weeks what modes of handicap accessories do you offer?

    Hi Kathy,

    How exciting, you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in just two more weeks!  Although you probably weren't anticipating being in a walking boot when you first made your plans, I can tell you from my personal experience that your visit will still be just as Magical.

    There are many Services for Guests with Disabilities offered at the Walt Disney World Resort.  One service that you may qualify for is the Disability Access Service (DAS) that is available for Guests who cannot tolerate standing in traditional queues for attractions.  I want to note that if your disability is based purely on the need to use a wheelchair or electric conveyance vehicle (ECV), then you will not qualify for DAS.  However, if you plan on walking around and have concerns about your ability to stand in the traditional queues then the DAS may be just the thing for you.  After you have read about the DAS, you can Pre-Register for DAS with a live video chat with a Cast Member from 2 to 30 days prior to your arrival.  By pre-registering, you will have the option to select 2 experiences per day as part of the DAS advanced planning option before you even arrive.  However, you can also wait until you arrive and stop by Guest Relations at any theme park to inquire about registering for DAS.

    Kathy, here are some helpful links to pocket guides for Guests with disabilities for Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom.  You can simply look through them or print them and take them with you.  Additionally, another service that may interest you is the ability to rent a wheelchair or ECV in each of the theme parks and Disney Springs.  These rentals are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Many Guests prefer to use a wheelchair or ECV for traversing long distances, such as across a theme park, and then park it in the designated parking area.  This will help reduce the amount of walking but yet still afford the ability to be mobile on your own.  If you rent a wheelchair or ECV from a theme park or Disney Springs, those items must stay in the location in which you rented them and be returned before you exit.  However, if you find that you would prefer to use a wheelchair or ECV outside of the theme parks and Disney Springs, you can select the Disney Featured Provider which is listed near the bottom of the page for wheelchair or ECV rentals and rent from them.  Those rentals can be delivered to all Disney Resort hotels as well as many other offsite locations, and they can be used anywhere you go for the duration that you have rented them.

    Have a Magical vacation!
