    We are planning our WDW vacation in two weeks, and I require a wheelchair. How early do I need to arrive to get one. I understand they are available on a first come first serve basis, but if I arrive at 9:00 am will I be in danger of not getting one? Thank

    Hi Wendy! Disney is very accommodating with respect to guests with disabilities, and they have programs in place to assure your guest experience is enjoyable. Wheelchair rentals are available in all four theme parks as well as Downtown Disney. The cost for rental is $12 per day at the theme parks, and $12 per day plus $100 refundable deposit at Downtown Disney. Wheelchair rentals are not availableat Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon. You should have no issue getting a wheelchair if you arrive at the parks in the morning. There have been instances where guests arriving in the latter part of the day were unable to receive a wheelchair, especially on peak attendance days. Keep in mind that there are only for use at the theme parks. They cannot be removed from the parks, nor used at the resorts. If you are looking for a duration of stay rental, I would recommend contacting an independent wheelchair rental company, such as Thisway you would be able to keep the wheelchair for the entire stay and use it at the resorts. Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation! -Malanie
