Services for People with Disabilities
Accessibility standards are high. Many attractions and most restaurants and shops are fully wheelchair accessible. There are large Braille park maps at Guest Relations in Future World and International Gateway as well as to the left of the walkway from Future World to the World Showcase Plaza.
At Guest Relations there's a schedule for sign-language presentations at some of the park attractions; you also can pick up special devices for hearing- and sight-impaired visitors.
At World Showcase most people stroll around the promenade, but there are also Friendship boats, which require visitors using oversize wheelchairs or scooters to transfer to Disney chairs.
You can rent wheelchairs at the Gift Stop outside the main entrance, at the Stroller & Wheelchair Rental Shop to the left of Spaceship Earth, or at the International Gateway. A limited number of Electronic Convenience Vehicles (ECV) are available only at the Stroller & Wheelchair Rental.
Wheelchairs are $12 daily, $10 for multiday rental. ECVs are $50 per day plus a refundable $20 security deposit. Arrive early, because neither conveyance can be reserved.
