    I have a 17 year old sister who is wheelchair bound. Can you let me know between Animal Kingdom & Epcot which park she'd be able to do more in? We're stuck in the middle because she likes to shop but she also loves animals, Thank you for the help!

    Hi, Kate!  For your sister, you're not going to go wrong with either Epcot or Animal Kingdom.  My mom is also wheelchair bound, and she loves both parks just for the reasons you mentioned -- shopping, sights and animals.  Yet, I give the nod to Epcot for people in wheelchairs since the passageways are much wider and seemingly smoother than those at Animal Kingdom.  In addition, my mom enjoys taking a break during the day to have lunch at a table-service restaurant (without a buffet), and there just are more to choose from at Epcot than Animal Kingdom.  For the attractions, both parks are very accommodating to traveling parties with members who are in wheelchairs, and my mom enjoys an equal amount of attractions at each of those two parks. I hope this has helped you make plans.  Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
