    Hi,saw your last answer re:backstage magic tour.What other tours r available&what r the prices?Do they all involve walking.Had foot surgeries/will use wheelchair.Can I still participate in any? Which do u recommend for me DD13/DS15?GREAT panel.So helpf

    Hi Sherri,

    I am so sorry to hear about your foot surgeries but I think you'll find that Disney World is a very accessible place for Guests in wheelchairs.

    Disney offers several awesome tours. You can see a complete list by clicking here. Most tours are wheelchair accessible. The prices are listed for most tours but keep in mind that prices are always subject to change without notice & they often do change before they update the website.

    If your DD & DS are going to accompany you on the tours, that will limit the number of options for you. The reason for this is that tours that take Guests through backstage areas must be at least 16 years old. There are some things you could possible see backstage that may spoil the magic for younger Guests.

    Going on the assumption that all three of you are participating, you can do the following tours:
    * Wild Africa Trek at Animal Kingdom - they do offer a general tour that is less physical & offers a wheelchair accessible trail. If this is something you think you'd like to try, contact them at 407-938-1373 which is a different number than the main booking number.
    * Disney's Family Magic Tour - this tour leads Guests through the Magic Kingdom to save it from a Disney Villain. I'm a big kid & love all the tours but your kids may feel they are too old for this tour.
    * Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour - this is a great way to see the trains up close & personal.
    * Dolphins in Depth
    * Behind the Seeds
    * Epcot DiveQuest - this one may be tough depending on how mobile you'll be you be.
    * Seas Aqua Tour

    I'm out of space for this answer but let me know if you need more info. Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
