First time to parks with wheelchair
We are planning a trip to WDW in October '06. This will be our first time with DH in a wheelchair. He is really nervous about this. (He doesn't really think that it would be "worth the hassle" for us to have to push him. For me, I don't care if he rides a thing...I just want to have him along!)
I'd like to get an idea of what the ups & downs are as far as Disney with a wheelchair. Where there places that a push wheelchair is a bad thing? Is it difficult to navigate onto the buses if you bring a wheelchair with you?
Thank you in advance for your help!
Re: First time to parks with wheelchair
I think the hardest park to navigate with a manual wheelchair is Animal Kingdom. In keeping with the rugged outdoor theme, their walkways are bumpy, some cobblestones, and in some places, not wide enough. There are more inclines there and not as easy to push. It was a real chore for my husband. We agreed that next time, for Animal Kingdom, we'll rent the electric ones.
