    Are walking canes that have a seat on them allowed in Disneyland?

    Hi there Randall,

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for your question! I'm glad you stopped by today. I'm happy to report that accessibility is hugely important at the Disneyland Resort. I have some members of my family who have required some additional resources and assistance when visiting the parks that have been such a huge help - I'll outline them below.

    First though, to directly answer your question, yes! Walking canes that have seats on them are permitted in the Disneyland Resort. For your reference, you can see this outlined on the Items Not Permitted FAQ page, about halfway down the page, where it says "Folding chairs, with the exception of cane-chair and seat-walker mobility aids." Sorry that the wording is a bit confusing in the context of your question, but this page is listing things not allowed in the resort and says folding chairs are not permitted, but cane-chairs are allowed. Just wanted to make sure that was crystal clear for your peace of mind!

    Furthermore, the Disneyland Resort has a spectacular resource that might make sense for you to look into before your visit called the Disability Access Service (DAS). This is a service intended for Guests who have difficulty tolerating extended waits in a conventional queue environment due to a disability and gives the ability to instead select return times for specific experiences instead of having to wait in that conventional standby queue. While you're waiting for your return time, you're free to enjoy the park!

    What's great about DAS is that it applies for your whole party so that you can all still ride attractions together. It has been such a great experience for my family on visits - we've been really thankful that it's an option.

    If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, I would recommend pre-registering for the service with DAS Advance. To do this, first purchase theme park tickets and make theme park reservations for each member of your party. Then you'll request a live video chat with a friendly Cast Member between 9:00 AM - 8:00 PM Pacific Time who will help you get pre-registered!

    I also wanted to mention that the Disneyland Resort also offers manual wheelchairs and ECV rentals if that ends up being more comfortable for you.

    Thank you again for your question, Randall! I really appreciated the opportunity to help. If you have any other follow-up questions that I can help with, please feel free to write me back directly.

    Have a Magical Day,
