I need information from someone who has dealt with a physical mobility issue at Disney.
My cousin and I will be there for several days in October. My cousin is in her 60s and has a disease that affects her ability to stand and to keep her balance. She leans on counters and walls to get around her house and uses a walker when she is outside the house. We are going to Disney specifically because they are so friendly to people with disabilities (and because it's one of my favorite places in the world and I think she will enjoy it). I know there will be some trade-offs and it won't be as easy as if I was by myself. I have reserved a scooter for her. I did not reserve a wheelchair because I have my own issues and I would not be able to push her around all day. We are staying on Disney property specifically so we can use their transportation system.
Disney has maps with icons showing how accessible each ride is. There are rides that say that someone must transfer from a scooter to get onto the ride. Some say they must transfer from a scooter to a wheelchair to get on the ride. We are concerned about supporting her during the transfer. We have not been able to figure out a way to bring her walker with us. If she needs to use a wheelchair to get from the scooter to the ride, will Disney have a wheelchair there that she can use? or is there another solution?
I appreciate any information you can give me. I have family members who I can no longer talk to about this trip because they keep warning me that this is not going to work.
