Excirsions with Wheelchair/Scooter

Hello!
I'm taking my mother, DH and DD (7) on the Fantasy Western Carribean November 2012. What excursions could we go on that could accommodate my mother's physical limitations and keep my DD attention?
Thanks so much!

Can't speak to the quality of the tours, but this may help:

It's tough since we know nothing about your mother's limitations.

All DCL excursions are keyed to indicate the amount of physical activity involved and whether they are wheelchair accessible.

Limitations

Good point!
She can walk short distances and can get into a car or van easily enough. Her main limitations are endurance, strength, and range of motion in her knees (each knee is about 100 degrees extension). She is pointing out excursion like the Jeep ride and the submarine, but I'm not sure she will be able to even get into the vehicles
I'm looking for alternatives to offer her without having to burst her bubble on the whole excursion idea.
All information is appreciated.
Thanks!
