    Hi! We are traveling in November and my sister will be recovering from surgery on her foot. Are all of the restaurants in the parks handicap accessible? She will have to be using a wheelchair or ECV. Thanks in advance for your help! Jen

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    I am happy to share that there are Services for Guests with Disabilities at the Walt Disney World Resort! Pay particular attention to the Guides for Guests with Disabilities. If you review the Magic Kingdom Guide, for example, take note of the Dining and Shopping Location information under Accessibility & Mobility. If a dining location has a narrow queue, it may be easier for a member of your party to order food for your sister rather than have her wait in the queue. When my husband used an ECV in the past, we were able to navigate all of the restaurants and shopping areas we wanted to enjoy.

    Since your sister will be in a wheelchair or Electric Conveyance Vehicle (ECV), I also suggest that you review the Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities. When my husband needed an ECV, we used ECV Rentals in the parks. If you decide to use a wheelchair, also review the Wheelchair Rental information for the parks. Since it sounds like your sister may need a wheelchair or ECV at the resort also, I suggest renting one from one of the Disney featured providers noted on the Wheelchair or ECV web page. 

    Jennifer, also try mobile food and beverage ordering to skip the wait in line when ordering food!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
