    I'm taking my parents next June. They are elderly and have limited mobility (knees that don't bend well etc) and my mom is overweight. What attractions may we have problems getting them on and off? Anything they may not be able to ride?

    Hi, Tricia!

    When entering an attraction, there will be signs posted indicating any mobility limitations and if a guest will need to transfer from a wheelchair or scooter.  There will be some attractions that will just not be accessible, such as Space Mountain, but other attractions such as it's a small world will allow them to simply stay in their wheelchairs/scooters without even transferring. 

    If they can transfer, say on Haunted Mansion, the cars will slow down to allow loading and unloading.  Please notify a Cast Member that your parents will be slow to load so they are ready to adjust where needed.

    I hope your family has a great time in Walt Disney World !
