My own wheelchair....question
I will be visiting WDW in May with my mom and I will be taking my own wheelchair. I can't walk long distances and have trouble standing too long. I can transfer easily if needed at the attractions. My question is this....what do the staff at the attractions do with your wheelchair? Mom and I would like to ride most everything together, but am wondering where they would put my wheelchair while we are riding the attraction. Is it secure? Sure can't afford to have my wheelchair stolen! Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!:wink:
Re: My own wheelchair....question
I have used a wheelchair from the WDW resort (for free!) and only had 1 place where there was a problem. One time on Pirates, at the end of the ride we discovered that the person in front of us took my wheelchair instead of their own. My son went tearing after them, but never caught them. The cast member called for another one (I use the wide one, which they didn't have right there). It wasn't too long of a wait before another cast member came with it. So my suggestion is to tie something to the arm or handle that will easily let someone else know they have the wrong chair. I plan to do that next time so this won't happen again. Otherwise, the cast members make it very easy with transferring the chairs from the entrance to the exit. It is amazing how they do it, but when you get off - there it is (usually!). I love WDW for their catering to people with disabilities.
