    Traveling with a special needs child who is in a wheelchair, she walks but not long distances, how easy/hard will it be for her to get on and off the rides? Anything special we need to do? Thank you

    Hello Krista!

    My son also uses wheelchair and we have found Walt Disney World Resort has made every effort to make the parks as accessible as possible for Guests with limited mobility issues.  There are some attractions where Guests must be able to transfer, while other attractions allow Guests to remain in their wheelchair during the experience.  Here you will find a list I find helpful when planning park days for my family.   

    Since our son uses a stroller as a wheelchair, I visit Guest Relations to secure a tag for the stroller that identifies it as a wheelchair.  This tag is good for the length of our vacation and allows him to remain in his stroller in attraction queues. 

    Please let me know if you have further questions!  Thank you for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel!
