    Kathryn from Co. Durham Asked

    Hi All, finally persauded my Dad to come to wdw! He needs to use an ecv and has trouble sitting in low seats. Is there anywhere I can find out about the rides so he can decide which ones he can go on or perhaps see pictures of the ride vehicles? Thx guys x

    Hi Kathryn,

    So happy to hear that you talked your Dad into visiting WDW!  To see a list of attractions, descriptions & any restrictions, click here. On the left side of that page, you will see each of the theme parks & water parks listed. You can narrow your search by clicking on Types, Recommended Ages, Height & Features.

    Also check the link on the Guests w/ Disabilities section on the WDW website for Guests with Mobility Disabilities. Some of the attractions allow Guests in ECVs to remain in them, some require Guests in ECVs to transfer to a wheelchair (they will have some courtesy ones on hand for this) & other attractions require Guests to transfer from ECV & wheelchairs to board.

    To see a close up picture of each of the Attraction Vehicles, go to www.allears.net.  It is an unofficial Disney website but they do an amazing job of putting the info in one location. From their homepage, click on Theme Parks. On the left side, you'll see a column w/ a list of topics. Under Attraction Info, click on the link for Attraction Seating Photo Gallery. They list all of the WDW attractions & you can click on each to see an upclose (non occupied) ride vehicle - including handicapped accessible vehicles.

    Also on allears.net, under the Theme Parks tab, look under the WDW Theme Parks General Info tab & click on Ride Restrictions. That will give you a list of any height requirements & safety restrictions in one chart.

    If you think your Dad may require special assistance, visit Guest Relations & explain his needs so that they can issue him a Guest Assistance Card.  Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
