    Hi, We will be arriving at WDW in 4 days, yeah! We are 4 adults & 4 kids staying at Cor. Springs. One of our kids just sufferered a very bad ankle sprain, we might bring a wheelchair for her. How easy is it to access the rides with a wheelchair?

    Hi Melissa,

    I am sorry to hear that your daughter sprained her ankle. However, I am very excited to hear you are going to Disney World in a few days!

    Disney has done a lot in recent years to make the lines more accessible to guests with mobility issues. The queues are wider and turns are easier. Also, at the front of every attraction, there is an explanation about transferring from a wheelchair as well as a cast member to answer any questions. In addition, attractions can be slowed down or delayed while a guest with needs enters and exit the attraction.

    I still recommend bringing a cane, crutches or a weight bearing cast because you might need to walk through a queue or up to an attraction.

    For more information on advice check out the Guest with Disabilities site.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
