    we are planning a trip for the upcoming year, with our son (will be 4 ). I will be potentially undergoing surgery on my knees is there any form of park transportation to assist with disability in walking ?

    Hi there, Devan! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate you taking the time to reach out and allowing us to help you plan your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Planning a visiting with your little one is so much fun! There are so many amazing opportunities that I'm sure you and your family will adore taking advantage of during your 2020 vacation regardless of your pending knee surgery!

    As someone that has health conditions that impact my ability to walk for long distances, I often have to plan around these and have had to ask similar questions to your own! Fortunately, there are quite a few services for Guests with disabilities at Walt Disney World Resort that may assist you in have the best vacation experience possible. 

    My top recommendation would be to consider renting an ECV or wheelchair for the duration of your stay. Guests visiting the parks for the first time are often surprised by the distance they end up walking throughout their stay. If you have any concerns with your mobility, a mobility device can make such a huge difference! If you do not use a wheelchair outside of this specific instance, I would highly suggest renting an ECV. These devices are the easiest to operate without any prior experience and do not carry the potential risk of fatiguing your arms. 

    Have fun continuing to plan for your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you!
