    Hello, will a wheelchair fit in a rental locker or is there some place to keep it stored during the times when it is not being used? It may only be needed for part of the day and I'm wondering where I can keep it safe while it's not in use.

    Hi Hayley! Welcome to planDisney! I'm glad to hear from you, and I understand how important this question is as you plan your upcoming vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth. I'll do my best to assist you.

    While I don't have the exact dimensions of your wheelchair or details like whether it folds or not, I can offer some tips to make things easier. First off, let's talk about the lockers available for rental at all the theme parks and water parks. There are three different sizes available. At all theme parks, the large size measures 15.5" x 13" x 17". In EPCOT and Magic Kingdom Park, you can find a jumbo size that measures 17" x 22" x 26". The large locker measures 15.5" x 13" x 17" at the water parks. Just keep in mind that all lockers are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Disney World is super safe, so you shouldn't have any trouble parking your wheelchair in a designated area around the theme park for a few hours and returning later. I've done the same with a stroller multiple times, leaving it in front of an attraction and picking it up later without any issues. However, it's highly recommended not to leave any personal belongings like wallets, documents or purses unattended.

    If you rent a wheelchair at Disney World, you can return it and pick up a new one anytime, even at different parks if you park hop. This could be an option if you're uncomfortable leaving your wheelchair unattended.

    Lastly, I recommend checking out the Services for Guests with Mobility Needs page. They've recently updated it with many helpful services and accessibility options available throughout Walt Disney World Resort for guests with mobility disabilities.

    I hope this info is helpful, Hayley. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and let us know anytime. It's always a pleasure to help out friends like you.
