    Visiting DLR with my ASD child. He is 8 (tall & thin) and will need some sort of "stroller" - for stamina, sensory needs, and to keep him from eloping. I am afraid even the DL double will be too small. Any special needs rental companies?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, you’re as welcome as can be to planDisney, Amber!

    I’m so excited to hEAR that you’ll be visiting the Happiest Place on Earth in just a few short months! You’re going to make so many special memories with your child. 

    I would love to help you find the right transport for your Mouseketeer! As for the Stroller Rentals available through Disneyland Resort, the double stroller is typically able to hold up to about 100 pounds. However, since your son is tall, I can see this stroller potentially being uncomfortable for him length-wise. Another option through the Resort is to rent a wheelchair.

    However, if you’re looking for something with more coverage, I think I found a great stroller option from Disney’s Featured Provider, ScooterBug, a private mobility rental company in Anaheim. It’s called the Freedom Push Adaptive Needs, and it’s built specifically for larger children or smaller adults with adaptive needs. There’s even a canopy on top if your son needs a break from sensory overload in the parks. Another great perk of using ScooterBug is having your stroller delivered directly to your Disneyland Resort Hotel for the length of your stay. So, you would be able to take it anywhere you go around the Resort, versus the Disneyland Resort strollers and wheelchairs, which are only available on a daily basis. To take a closer look at this stroller and possibly rent it for your stay, you can visit ScooterBug.com/Anaheim, or call the company at (800) 726-8284. 

    Then, upon arrival, you can visit Guest Relations in either theme park in order to obtain the appropriate identifying tag needed for you to use your stroller as a wheelchair in attraction queues, so your son can remain in his stroller if needed. 

    Also, here’s a wonderful guide to help you plan your visit to the Disneyland Resort, Amanda! It covers everything you’ll need to know, including where to find companion restrooms and break areas throughout the theme parks. Also, last but not least, the Resort offers Disability Access Service (DAS) to accommodate Guests who aren’t able to wait in a conventional queue due to a disability.  And now, the Resort is making it easier for Guests to register for DAS ahead of their visit! This new DAS system will allow you to pre-register online with a live video chat as early as 30 days in advance of your visit, and no less than two days before. So, I recommend marking your calendar so you don’t forget to set this up ahead of time.

    In the meantime, if you have any additional questions, you can always reach out to Disability Services at (407) 560-2547, or send an email to disability.services@disneyland.com.

    I hope this information helps, Amanda! If you have any additional questions, please visit us again at planDisney... we're all EARs!
