    Hello! I am traveling soon to Disneyworld with my mother who is disabled. Is there a way to have her transported from the park gate to the resort bus? It certainly is a long walk for her after an adventurous day!

    Hi, Susan!

    If your mother is unable to walk to and from the bus stops, I suggest you rent an ECV from an outside rental company so you will have it for your entire stay.  Buses can accommodate wheelchairs and ECV's.  I'm thinking ahead to not only about her walking from the park gates to the buses, but once she gets off the bus at your home resort, it might be a bit of a trek to your room or even from your room to the food court.

    ECV's and wheelchairs rented directly from Walt Disney World must remain in the parks.  However, if you rent from an independent company, you can keep it with you for your entire stay. Read up on the ECV INFORMATION and decide what might be the best avenue for your mom.

    I hope this information helps!  Wishing your family a magical WDW vacation.
