Wheelchair Accessibility In Disney World

For the most part Disney is a wheelchair friendly place.  Handicapped parking in Disney is available if you have the respective placard.  The buses that move throughout the Disney property are also handicapped friendly.  If you are flying in, then Disney’s Magical Express is also accessible with a wheelchair.  When booking your resort room be sure to mention that you are in a wheelchair.  There are fully handicapped rooms, and there are rooms that are accessible enough if you don’t need your wheeelchair completely.

You may be requested to go to Town Hall to get a handicapped pass for rides.  This is obviously done to deter people trying to get on rides that are not truly handicapped.  There are a few rides that you will need to wait just like other people, but not many.  When in Disney you can rent wheelchairs from Disney, or there are many off-site rental companies available.  Most people have their own wheelchair, but for those that can’t bring theirs for some reason, or if theirs breaks then most of the social security disability insurances, and other medical insurances will cover the cost.

There are a few things that you should realize.  When in Disney World please take mind that other people are there trying to enjoy themselves.  Please be cautious of your wheelchairs capabilities.  I have seen many children almost get run over because the electronic wheelchairs are very touchy.  You may want to account for a little extra time navigating the park.
