    My wife has leukemia and cannot walk long distances due to her lack of stamina. We plan to rent a wheel chair.I know some rides have lines that accommodate wheel chairs, while others do not...can we ride with her (group of 7) on those rides or separate?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Mark ~

    ​Disney tries to assist Guests with a variety of special needs. ​The Disability Access Service Card (DAS) will assist your wife in the theme parks. It is designed to assist Guests who are unable to wait in a standard queue for a variety of medical reasons. You can request a DAS by going to Guest Relations at any of the theme parks. Cast Members are allowed to approve the card for the Guest requiring the DAS and up to 5 additional Guests for a total of 6. For a party over 6, you can ask to speak with a manager to request an approval for more Guests if the Cast Member assisting you is not authorized to approve it. Here is some additional information regarding the details of how the DAS works. I've also included a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the DAS .

    Here is some information regarding attractions for Guests with Mobility Disabilities including those that allow Guests to remain in their wheelchairs or ECVs, those that require Guests in ECVs to transfer to wheelchairs to board and those that require Guests to be mobile to enjoy.​

    We have found that most Cast Members (especially when we ask nicely), are very accommodating when we have 7 in our party. This is even more true when some of the members of our party are children.

    Please feel free to visit us with all of your planning questions. It is our pleasure to assist you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
