    Hi! We’re planning to go to Disneyland on march, my 96 year old grandma is coming, does she pay for a ticket? she is in a wheelchair and she’s not going in to any ride, she’s coming with us because we don’t have family that can watch for her while we go.

    Hello, Erika!

    Welcome to planDisney, I'm happy to have you here! I think one of the best things about Disneyland is the variety of experiences that families can do together. I'm sure your grandma will find some magic in the parks!

    All guests ages 3 and over are required to have both a theme park ticket and a valid park reservation to enter the parks at the Disneyland Resort. So your grandma will need her own park ticket and reservation. But I'm happy to share that many of the attractions at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are accessible to guests who use a wheelchair so your whole party can enjoy them together!

    I recommend taking a look a the Disability Access Guides for Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. There's also a great list of attractions on the Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities page! Some of my very favorites are completely wheelchair accessible, so your grandma wouldn't even need to get out of her wheelchair. At Disneyland Park you might try:

    • Mark Twain Riverboat
    • King Arthur Carrousel
    • Jungle Cruise
    • The Disneyland Railroad (Mickey's Toontown, New Orleans Square and Tomorrowland stations)
    • Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room
    • "it's a small world"

    In Disney California Adventure Park I think your grandma might love:

    • Mickey's PhilharMagic
    • Jessie's Critter Carousel
    • The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure
    • Red Car Trolley
    • Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!
    • Turtle Talk with Crush

    Your grandma should be able to enjoy all of these attractions right from her wheelchair. When you're in the parks you can always ask a Cast Member for help to locate the accessible queue and get answers to any questions you might have. You can also find information about attraction accessibility in the Disneyland Mobile App!

    Finally, there is wheelchair-accessible seating for World of Color - ONE at Disney California Adventure Park. The show is so beautiful, it would be a wonderful way to end your Disney day!

    Erika, I hope you'll buy your grandma a pair of Minnie ears and enjoy your visit together! Take some time to visit with a favorite character, soak up the atmosphere in a quiet spot, and enjoy a delicious treat. Make sure you take advantage of Disney PhotoPass Service to take some group photos to remember your visit!  

    Keep moving forward!
