    Can I rent a cane/ walking stick for the week?

    Hey Howdy Hey John and welcome back to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question about renting an assistive device for your upcoming trip. Let's go over a few options that you may have to get you better prepared for navigating the parks and resorts. 

    When taking a trip to Walt Disney World Resort, Disney tries to make every attempt at accessibility for those with mobility challenges with all of its attractions and resort transportation offerings. Disney does offer some options to those that may need them with rentals of wheelchairs and strollers. Concerning specific cane or walking stick rentals, Disney, unfortunately, does not provide this service. Not to worry John, there are still a few places you may want to look to better prepare for your upcoming trip. 

    There are a few offsite locations where you may want to look into renting or purchasing an assistive device for your trip. They may even be able to deliver these items to your resort so that you will have them waiting for you when you get there. A few local places close to Walt Disney World are Turner Drugs Tourist Prescription Service which they do carry assistive devices as well. You can also look into Orlando Medical Rentals which may provide you with some other options. You always do have the option to visit a local drug store such as Walgreens or CVS that are close to Walt Disney World Resort to purchase either a cane or walking stick which they should have at practical prices. 

    One other thing to consider if you may be worried about standing and walking longer times and distances, as this is unavoidable to a large extent in Walt Disney World, is looking into Disability Access Service (DAS). If you qualify for this service, you and your party will be able to wait in almost any line virtually through your selections on your My Disney Experience account. The process is simple to apply for online and if you qualify for DAS Advanced Planning, you will have the opportunity to book 2 passes to attractions before you get to the parks! All super convenient ways to access the magic with consideration of all mobility types!

    Best of luck as you continue to plan for your upcoming trip. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
