    We will be traaveling with a a person that may or may not need a wheel chair while we are there, will we need to take documentation of his medical needs for the wheel chair in order to rent the chair?

    Hi there John!

    When renting a wheelchair, you will not need a prior medical history. There are many people who are fully capable of walking short distances which take advantage of using the wheelchairs to be able to keep up with the rest of their party.

    It's a very convenient way for people to get around. Please know that when you rent a chair it's only for use in the parks. You can hop between parks and use a chair at a different park without having to pay again. You can also get a length of stay pass which gives you a little bit of a discount over renting one each day. I hope this information helps you with your planning and if you have more questions, please ask away, we are always here to help! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
