    Our 8 year old son has feet issues and cannot walk or stand for long periods of time.Will a rental stroller accommodate a large 8 year old boy?Is it possible to get a wheel chair?Would we have to rent it or does Disney provide it for medical issues?Thanks!

    Hi there, Diana!

    You are welcome to rent one of the strollers offered at Walt Disney World. If the single size is not enough to accommodate an eight-year-old, you can also try the double size. Without a sense of your son's size, I don't want to send you to either size with any certainty, but it's a guarantee that he will be comfortable in one of them.

    And yes, wheelchair rental is certainly another option. There are both standard push-wheelchairs and electric convenience vehicles (ECVs) available for rent throughout the World.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
