    We are planning our trip for January 2014. 6 adults and 4 kids. My dad is handicapped with be renting a motorized scooter for the duration of the trip. Will the grandkids be able to ride with him at the same time? How does he get on to the rides?

    Hi, Alicia!  If your dad is able to transfer from the scooter to the regular seats on the attractions, he will definitely be able to ride with the children.  Accommodations can be made for mobility issues he may have as he boards attraction vehicles.

    If he has to stay in his scooter, there are some attractions that have special cars designed to accommodate a scooter or wheelchair.  In those cases, usually some of the family can ride with him, but each attraction varies with regard to how many guests can be accommodated in one vehicle.

    Other attractions, such as theater shows, offer handicapped accessible rows designed so guests can remain in their scooter but still be seated with family.  These rows are usually toward the back of the theater.

    I hope this helps!  It sounds like a great trip being planned!
