The Disney Parks are a great place to visit if you are a wheelchair user. Many of the attractions have wheelchair accessible ride vehicles so you don’t have to attractions. And those that don’t sometimes have a way to make that transfer easier. We are always updating our attraction guide so make sure to stop by again for updated information. All attractions are divided into categories. May remain in wheelchair means that you can stay in your wheelchair to experience the attraction. However, if you are using an ECV, you may have to transfer to an available wheelchair. Transfer required means that you will have to transfer to the ride vehicle. And must be ambulatory requires you to be able to walk at least a few steps in most cases occasionally more.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom has always been one of our favorite parks. And luckily it just keeps getting better! New nighttime experiences have been added as well as Pandora – The World of Avatar. While we were initially skeptical, Pandora is visually stunning. And while the accessibility of the new attractions aren’t perfect, we think Avatar Flight of Passage is pretty awesome.
Conservation Station – Located at Rafiki’s Planet watch, Conservation Station is where you will find interactive exhibits, the animal treatment rooms and information, character meet and greets, Affection Station, and Habitat Habit! You can reach this area via the Wildlife Express Train, which is wheelchair accessible as well. All of the trails as well as the area around Conservation Station are wheelchair accessible and the paths are much smoother than the rest of Animal Kingdom. If you are an animal lover we consider this area a must do. The Science Center, Nutrition Center, and Veterinary Treatment Room are fascinating. It helps you learn more about the animals living in the park as well as the people who care for them.

The Magic Kingdom continue’s to be Walt Disney World’s most popular park. It also has the most attractions to experience. However, since it is also the oldest there are a few challenges for wheelchair users. Some attractions have alternative entrances and others require you to be ambulatory. But there are a few classics that have been updated. Luckily, newer attractions are more wheelchair friendly and several allow you to stay in your wheelchair.
