    I have a slight drop foot and use a walking stick. I was wondering if a walking stick is allowable in the Disney and California Adventure parks?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Carla! Thanks so much for swinging by planDisney with your question. I can appreciate you looking into the theme park guidelines and policies prior to your visit – it helps to minimize any surprises! 

    Carla, you’ll be pleased to hEAR that you can bring your walking stick/cane into the Disneyland Resort with you. There may be certain attractions where you cannot bring your cane aboard with you, in which case a Cast Member will keep it for you safely, typically where the wheelchairs are parked, and return it to you when you request it. I suggest labeling your cane clearly with your name and phone number to keep it clearly identified as yours! In my experience the Cast Members are very attentive and helpful and will do what they can to keep you comfortable and safe.

    There are other options to help with mobility around the theme parks. In case you think an Electric Conveyance Vehicle (ECV) or manual wheelchair might be useful for you, they are available for rent. They cannot be reserved, so if you would like to consider renting one, just plan to arrive early. They are available just outside each theme park. 

    I just recently sent a friend the Guides for Guests with Disabilities on the Disneyland Resort website – there is a guide for Disneyland Park and a guide for Disney California Adventure Park. These are helpful to review in advance as there is lots of helpful information included! Also, just in case you’d like to speak to someone in advance of your visit about the Disability Access Service (DAS) program, they offer a video chat feature within 30 days of your visit. As your trip is just a few days away, you could consider a quick video chat to see if you may be eligible for DAS, which would give you the ability to schedule return times for select attractions in lieu of waiting in line, in case that would make your visit more comfortable.

    My family recently visited and used the new Disney Genie+ offering, which is a gamechanger in saving time spent in queues! We were able to access Lightning Lanes for almost 20 attractions between the two theme parks, reducing our wait times and giving us more time for fun in the parks. You can add the Disney Genie+ service to your day after you enter the theme park through the Disneyland mobile app! It’s a magic carpet ride worth taking. 

    Carla, I wish you a practically perfect visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! Come back and see us if you have more questions. You’ve got a friend in me!
