    Visiting with disabled 6 yr old, who will travel in disabled pushchair, as wheelchair is too large to travel with. Will we be allowed to queue with her in her pushchair & allowed to take it into restaurants? She is completely unable to stand or walk.

    Hello Kelly,

    Welcome to planDisney, where we join Walt Disney’s welcome to all who come to the happy place! Kelly, Walt Disney World Resort is committed to making magic for all Guests by removing barriers as much as possible, including experiencing attractions and dining options. I just know that your family will have a practically perfect holiday!

    One of my favorite things about Walt Disney World attractions is the queues! I love how waiting in line is part of the attraction’s story. You will be glad to know that all attraction queues are pushchair accessible, so your little princess will be able to experience the magic of each attraction before it starts. If you have any questions about how to access the queue, transfer to the actual attraction vehicle, or ensure the attraction is right for your family, be sure to ask a Cast Member for assistance.

    All dining locations also feature pushchair-accessible options. To enter some of the dining venues, you will need to keep an eye out for entrances that are barrier-free, so just look for the wheelchair signs that are easily identifiable. Once inside, there are tables specially designed and situated for mobility devices such as a pushchair. When you make your advanced dining reservations and check in for your reservation, remember to indicate that you need an accessible table. 

    Did you know that Walt Disney World Resort hotels provide numerous rooms, transportation options and more with added comfort, safety and services for guests with mobility? For more information, please contact Disability Services at (407) 560-2547 or email disability.services@disneyparks.com. You can also review the Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities page on the Walt Disney World website to learn more. 

    Kelly, my daughters were enthralled with all the Disney Characters when they were six! One of my best tips to make your daughter’s holiday extra magical is to meet her favorite Characters for a hug, a photo and perhaps an autograph.
    I hope this information is helpful to you. I imagine that your daughter is a magic-maker in her own right and will lead your family on another enchanted vacation enjoying all that Walt Disney World resort has to offer! Please visit us again with any other questions and allow us the privilege of helping you create magical memories.

    Wishing you a pixie-dusted holiday,
