Man in wheelchair on Expedition Everest

    Ramona from MA Asked

    I recently injured my knee and will be renting an ECV to get around the parks. On the rides that require me to transfer from the ECV to the ride, will I be able to use my crutches? I am unable to put ANY weight on my knee.

    Hello Ramona, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a very important question.

    I am sorry to hear about your recent injury, but I am very excited to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few days. During one of my last visits, I was also suffering from a torn meniscus, so I completely understand your concern.

    There are a few rides that will allow you to ride up to the boarding area and transfer directly from your ECV to the ride vehicle. There are a handful of rides that will require you to transfer to a wheelchair before boarding, like Pirates of the Caribbean. You could use crutches if you so choose, but they would need to remain with you while you ride.

    There are a few rides and attractions that have a moving walkway that can be slowed down, but not able to stop for you to get on. I noticed that The Haunted Mansion, Spaceship Earth, and the Tomorrowland Transit Authority use this type of boarding system. I would recommend checking with a Cast Member at the time of boarding for specific options. Wishing you a speedy recovery and a magical vacation.

    See ya real soon,
    Andrea
