    Hi there PlanDisney team! I am visiting in September and staying at the all star sports. Can my wheelchair using -but able to transfer a few steps- companion get in and out of the pool? What about in the water parks? Thank you for your help!

    Hi there, Erika!

    Thanks for swimming back to planDisney again. We're so happy you decided to visit us with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! I'm excited to hear you're planning a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth in a few months. You and your companion are in for a splash-tastic time!

    Erika, Disney's All-Star Sports Resort is one of my family's favorite Disney Value Resort hotels. As Disney Resort hotel Guests, you and your companion will enjoy early theme park entry, allowing you to enter the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks 30 minutes before they open to the public! When you're ready to take a break from the theme parks, head to Surfboard Bay Pool at Disney's All-Star Sports Resort for a fin-tastic time! This pool offers accessibility features including a wheelchair lift as well as transfer tiers which should enable your companion to comfortably enter and exit the water.

    My family loves making a splash at the Disney water parks, Erika! At Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Please note that several attractions do require Guests to transfer from their wheelchairs or ECVs. I spoke with a friendly Cast Member at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park who indicated that PVC-like wheelchairs are available for rental and use in the water. Several pools and attractions also offer zero-entry access. Erika, I also found out that the fan-favorite Crush 'n' Gusher has an elevator for Guests to get to the top of the attraction!

    I hope you've found this information helpful as you continue to plan a memorable vacation. If you have any additional questions before your visit, please feel free to float back over to planDisney again anytime! We're here to help you enjoy every magical moment at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Just keep swimming,
