    Planning a trip with my Mom who will need an ECV for parks only but has difficulty walking long distances due to diabetes. Is there a way to req a wc for use to the bus stop at the Resort then again from the bus stop to park gates and vice versa? Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer.  To my knowledge, Disney resorts do not keep wheelchairs on hand for guests to use.  Often times, however, I have seen wheelchairs available in the handicapped section of the theme park parking lots that can be borrowed to transport guests to the front gate.  If you think your mom will need a wheelchair to get from your resort room to the bus stop my suggestion would be to rent one from an Orlando area company for the duration of your stay.  There are several companies that provide wheelchair rentals, many of which offer free delivery.  If you do a Google search for "Orlando wheelchair rental" it should yield plenty of options.  I hope that helps.

I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
