    We have a big week long trip planned to Disney World next week. Unfortunately, my daughter (age 10) has broken her foot. I have rented a wheelchair for her but was wondering what kind of accommodations Disney has for her inside the parks.

    Hello, Kaye,

    I'm so sorry to hear that your daughter has broken her foot right before your trip to Walt Disney World.  Renting a wheelchair for her will help tremendously with all of the walking in the theme parks, and Walt Disney World does a wonderful job accommodating guests who use them.  When you arrive at the attractions, a cast member will assist you and let you know if you will enter in a different way. However, many of the attractions you will all be able to get into the regular Standby or FastPass+ lines along with other guests.  If you are using Disney transportation, you will have the option of having your daughter stay in the wheelchair or, if she can, transferring out of it and then having someone just hold the folded wheelchair. 

    You may want to read through this information about Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities to familiarize yourself with the big picture of how the individual attractions each offer accommodations. 

    Wishing you a magical trip!  -Kara
