    Renting a wheelchair at DS. Can I wheel my brother to the resort bus stop, get him on & on his way then return the w/c at DS for him & take another bus myself? How far is the stop for AS Music? Very difficult for him to walk & stand.

    Hey Jaynee, welcome back to planDisney! Thank you so much for the personal question, and I am happy to assist in any way I can. 

    Yes, there should be no issues with you escorting your brother to the bus and waiting with him until he boards the bus, especially since you will be immediately returning the wheelchair to the rental counter as soon as you drop him off. 

    Have you considered renting a wheelchair or an ECV from an outside provider like Scooterbug dot com? You can rent it from the time you arrive to the actual time you depart. They will drop the wheelchair or ECV off at your resort before you arrive so that you have access from the time you check-in. In addition, they will pick it up after you have departed, giving you plenty of time to enjoy your last full day at Disney Springs and make it back to your resort with minimal walking. I only suggest that because I understand how it feels when walking is limited. 

    The bus stop at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort is near Melody Hall, but it might be a bit of a walk, depending on where your room is located. If you decide to utilize the services of an independent wheelchair/ ECV rental provider, you can use it to get your brother to your room, and then once he is settled, return it to bell services, and the provider will pick it up from there. Be sure to note on your reservation what time you plan to depart. 

    Have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort with your family! Please let us know if you have additional questions before your arrival.
