Disney & Disabilities: Accessibility at Magic Kingdom!

Hello friends! Since I shared my experience with my sister on our last trip, I thought I would go a little more in depth with accessibility at Walt Disney World. If I didn’t know as much about Disney as I do, I wish I could find a resource that gives me ALL of the information, so over the next few months that’s what I’m going to try and create. I want to lay out what is accessible at each park, and eventually create a landing page with links to each post. So welcome to the continuation of the Disney & Disabilities series onΒ A Disney Obsession! I’ve also created an Accessibility blog post category, which can make these posts easier to find.

Today I’m going to start with accessibility at Magic Kingdom! I’ll lay out which rides guests can remain in their wheelchair, and which ones they are required to transfer. Also if you know someone who rents a scooter, I’m pointing out which attractions they are required to transfer to a wheelchair before riding. This post may be short, but I’m getting right to the point today! πŸ™‚ Without further ado, let’s get started!

All parades have accessible seating, so just show up early and you will be let into that area. For character meets and greets,Β guests can of course remain in their wheelchair or scooter. And lastly, for stage shows and fireworks, guests can remain in their wheelchair or scooter.
