    How can we be sure there are large wheelchairs available at queues where they are wheelchair friendly but don't allow ECVs. My mom is a very large woman and as such has breathing issues and bad knees the wheelchairs are all average size! Very frustrating!

    Hi, Anne!

    Let a friendly Cast Member know that your mom needs to stay in her ECV until transferring to her seat on the attraction.  They will happily make sure her ECV fits in the queue or will lead her to an entrance allowing her to make the transfer.  Please note that some attractions will allow her to stay in her ECV (especially shows like Hall of Presidents or Carousel of Progress) while others will require that she can transfer to the seat of the attraction (like the Flying Dumbos).  You can count on the wonderful Disney Cast Members at each attraction to explain the loading procedure.  No worries, you will be well taken care of by Mickey and his great team at Walt Disney World.
