Disney photos are important. Especially if you are an instagram addict like me. But more importantly, you want to be able to document your day there and have some great memories to keep and share. Today I’m sharing some tips, apps, and equipment that I use when I am taking photos with my cell phone in the Disney parks. Lets start with a few basic tips.

Big Thunder Mountain

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is one of the attractions at the Magic Kingdom that wheelchair users use an alternate entrance. The attraction also has an accessible ride vehicle to make transferring easier. Check out the details below to see if the wildest ride in the wilderness is for you.

Disneyland's Haunted Mansion

The procedure at Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion is a little different that at Walt Disney World. I have been on this attraction at Disneyland once. Our first trip the Haunted Mansion was closed to get ready for the holidays and our second trip was short so we didn’t visit attractions more than once. So if you have experience this attraction more and would like to weigh in I would love your feed back.

Wheelchair Accessibility at Disneyland & Walt Disney World | Rolling with the Magic

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Blue Loop. Today we are discussing how planning a trip to Disneyland is different than planning a visit to Walt Disney World.


We have been to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World and both have been excellent in terms of wheelchair access. Things are never perfect but I think Disney does a great job of making almost everything accessible. There really is much more than I can do than I can’t and there really aren’t that many places that make me feel that way. Here are the basics to help you start planning a trip to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. While both offer great accessibility there are a few differences.

60 Days to 60 Years at Disneyland | The Year of Limited Time Magic

60 Days to 60 Years at Disneyland

Limited Time Magic ran through the entire calendar year of 2013. Some lasted a week, a few a little longer, and some even lasted just one day. There was even some cool merchandise to go along with the promotion. The Disney Parks Blog announced each event on Friday. Here are some of the highlights (and events I wish I could have attended!)

The Jungle Cruise has always been one of my favorite attractions. One of the reasons why is because I can stay in my wheelchair to experience it and not have to worry about transferring into the ride vehicle.

Springtime Roundup is back at Disneyland this year. I am so glad our trip overlapped with this event! It looked like so much fun and we love meeting characters. And I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was to finally meet Roger Rabbit!

Accessible Attractions in Disneyland’s Fantasyland

One morning of our Disneyland trip we decided to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hour and visit all of the attractions in Fantasyland. We had so much fun and since it wasn’t crowded we didn’t wait very long for any of the attractions. Below is a breakdown of the accessible attractions in Disneyland’s Fantasyland that we visited. Keep in mind we visited before the new Disability Access Service Card came into existence so I don’t have any hands on experience with the process at Disneyland or how the return times work. You can find more information about the service here.
