Accessible Attractions | Toy Story Mania

Toy Story Mania

Toy Story Mania is one of my favorite attractions. It’s so easy for me to get into the ride vehicle and I’m kind of competitive so it’s an attraction that we can’t miss. And now that we can schedule at time instead of running there first thing at rope drop I love it even more.

Both the standard and FastPass+ queues are wheelchair accessible. Since it is still a really popular attraction I recommend scheduling a FastPass+ time. You can also head to Toy Story Mania first thing in the morning and the line should be shorter than any other time of day. The standard queue has several switchbacks but I have never had any trouble navigating them.

Eventually you will come to a gate, it’s right after the area where you pick up your 3D glasses. There a Cast Member will direct you to the wheelchair loading area. There is a ramp so you avoid the stairs in the regular queue. Your wait time there will vary. If you cannot transfer and want to stay in your wheelchair you may have to wait a little longer for the accessible ride vehicle if it is currently in use or if there are other wheelchair users in front of you.

Once you are ready to board the Cast Members will lower a ramp for you to enter the ride vehicle. One member of your party will be able to ride with you. Cast Members will then strap your wheelchair in, place a bumper behind your wheels, and place a seat belt around you. The ride spins quite a bit but I have always felt secure and my wheelchair has never moved.

You use the shooter in front of you to play the games on the attraction. There is a string you can pull but on the accessible ride vehicle there is also a button on top that you can push that may be easier for you to use.

Once your game is over, Cast Members will remove all of the straps and the bumper holding you in place and then lower the ramp for you to exit. I think its one of the easiest attractions to experience. The separate loading area makes it even easier and you never feel like you need to rush.
