How to Tour the Parks – Visiting the Magic Kingdom in a Wheelchair Part 2

How to Tour the Parks - Visiting the Magic Kingdom in a Wheelchair Part 2

Today we are looking at the attractions in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. If you missed part one you can find it here for information on Adventureland, Frontierland, and Liberty Square.

Fantasyland

it’s a small world
it’s a small world has a different entrance for wheelchair users. It is located next to the exit of the attraction. If you would like to stay in your wheelchair the attraction has accessible boats. You may have to wait for one of them to cycle through so your wait time will vary. Once the boat arrives you just roll on and then down to the front. There are seats on the side for members of your party. Cast Members will place a rubber bumper behind your tires to keep your wheelchair in place but make sure you have your brakes on as well.

Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
This attraction has a special ride vehicle that allows you to stay in your wheelchair. Once you go through the queue just let the Cast Members that you need to stay in your wheelchair. You may have to wait a little longer for the ride vehicle to cycle through but we didn’t have to wait very long. There is only room for your wheelchair and one other person so if you are with a bigger party they will have to ride in a different hunny pot.

Mickey’s PhilharMagic
This attraction is in a theater and has wheelchair seating in the back. Cast Members will point you towards a door to the far right of the waiting area that leads to the wheelchair seating.

The following attractions you must be able to transfer from your wheelchair to experience. I haven’t visited them in quite some time because the transition would just be too difficult for me. If you have an experience you would like to share about these attractions be sure to leave a comment below.
Mad Tea Party
Peter Pan’s Flight
Prince Charming’s Regal Carousel
Snow White’s Scary Adventures

Tomorrowland

Astro Orbiter
This is one of the few attractions at Walt Disney World that I haven’t experienced so I can’t really give any advice. The guidebook shows that you have to transfer from your wheelchair to ride. If you have any questions just ask a Cast Member.

Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
This is a very wheelchair friendly attraction. Once you go through the queue a Cast Member will ask you if you want to transfer or stay in your chair. If you are unable to walk a few steps it is easiest to stay in your wheelchair and use the wheelchair access vehicle. Once the access vehicle comes around the Cast Members will either slow down or stop the attraction for a few moments. There is a ramp on the vehicle that folds down and allows you to roll in easily. Make sure your brakes are on because there isn’t anything else that will keep you from moving in your wheelchair once the attraction starts.

Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress
This is one of my favorites. There is wheelchair seating in the front of the attraction. I prefer to sit toward the middle. Again, make sure your brakes are locked since it is a moving theater.

Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor
This is another attraction that takes place in a theater type setting. Wheelchair seating is located in the front. And don’t think that the Monsters in the show won’t call on you. I learned that lesson on a recent trip.

Stitch’s Great Escape!
This attraction has two parts. First you go through orientation. Cast Members will point you toward the middle door so you will be in the second row for the pre-show. There is a wheelchair viewing area there. After that you are taken into the holding area. There are seats in the back that allow you to stay in your wheelchair. Once the attraction is over a Cast Member will take you back through the entrance to a different exit.

Tomorrowland Speedway
This is another attraction that you have to transfer from your chair to experience. I haven’t ridden in years so I can’t remember how low the cars are. If you have any questions I am sure the Cast Members there can help you.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover
This was always one of my favorite attractions. Unfortunately, if you are unable to walk a few steps there really isn’t an easy way to board.

Space Mountain
This is another attraction I haven’t ridden in a few years. The ride vehicles sit pretty low so it would be difficult for me to get in and out. But if you think you can transfer easily either obtain a FASTPASS and then enter through the the FASTPASS queue. If there aren’t any FASTPASSES available then you enter to the right.
