    Which Attractions Don't Stop?

    I am going to WDW in a month with my Mom and Grandfather. My Grandfather doesn't move around as well as he used to. We are renting a scooter from Walker's and that should work out just fine. I know that certain rides like Spaceship Earth and the Haunted Mansion stop to let disabled guests on so that they don't have to walk on the conveyor belt. Are there any attractions that can't or don't stop. My mom and I are going for two days without Grandpa and I was just wondering which rides to skip on the days that he is with us.

    Also are there any rides that are really difficult to access even if we switch to a wheelchair?

    And yes you are right, they do stop to let people who are disabled on but they are the omni mover system.

    Buzz can also stop if you need it to.

    If you need that they load you at the exit after you go through the regular queue they take you down a hallway to the exit...

    yeah, well, what i'm saying is that they are omnis, and don't stop to load each individual guest on the ride.

    I forget, does Journey into your Imagination stop? I think it does but I might be wrong.

    Yes, I know this question has been out there for a while, but Journey Into Your Imagination stops and loads guests on each train, just like the cars at Test Track, hope this helps!

    All the "non-stop" rides will stop to give people extra time to load in and load out of rides regardless of the reason ...if you need the extra time dont hesitate to let the castmember who is doing the loading/unloading know.

    Our experience was that Peter Pan did not stop, but the HM did slow down. I don't remember how we boarded Buzz.

    My grandmother will not get on rides that don't stop, and she won't allow us to ask them to stop it. She ends up giving some other excuse for why she doesn't want to ride. We did convince her to ride Spaceship Earth because it is the slowest of the "non-stop" rides. I would say that Buzz Lightyear is the fastest. All you need to do is inform the CM that you need to the ride to stop or slow down and I'm sure that they will help you.
