    I am in a power wheelchair. I know that some of the rides you begin in one area and disembark at another. How do you get back to your wheelchair?

    Hiya Karen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so glad you stopped by with your question.

    Walt Disney World Resort provides many services for Guests using wheelchairs or Electric Conveyance Vehicles. I'm happy to tell you there are several attraction access categories. A great resource is the Services for Guests with Disabilities at Walt Disney World Resort. It includes guides for Guests with disabilities for all four Theme Parks: Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. You will also find useful information such as amenities for rent or deposit, as well as all the rides with Mobility Access and where the access point is. For instance, under Town Square Theater at Magic Kingdom Park, it states- Mobility Access: Enter using ramp on RIGHT.

    On some rides, you will park your power wheelchair and go on to board the attraction. If this is the type of attraction that drops you off in the same area, you will know the exact location of your electric wheelchair. However, I know you are asking about the attractions that begin in one location and end at another. For these, you will look for the blue disability access sign and go to the Greeting Cast Member there. They will take care of your electric wheelchair and move it for you so you will have it once you disembark the attraction. If you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to call Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities and a Cast Member will be happy to assist you.

    Karen, I hope this gives you a peace of mind when you're getting ready to have the most magical and fun vacation!
