    On rides like Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan, and Snow White, can the cast members slow down the moving vehicles for someone elderly to get on them? Do you tell them when you are getting on? My father can not walk that fast, and panics to get on the ride. Th

    Hi Wendy!  I recently traveled with my mother and had the same concerns about getting her on and off the different attractions.  We did not have difficulty on most but the Haunted Mansion comes to mind that was the worst of all.  The lines come together and the merging of the guests was tough to maneuver for her and then it was the moving walkway to the vehicles that was the hardest for her to handle.  The cast member saw that she was elderly but did not slow the ride and it was not easy for her.  If he chooses to use a wheel chair this will alert the cast members that it is someone who might need assistance. If not then I suggest you tell them when you approach the ride that you will need their help.  I can only remember the Haunted Mansion being a tough one for my mother!
