Can a folded up wheelchair be transported in a normal taxi van?

Not sure which section to post this in so I may post in another spot as well. We leave for Disney on the 15th. My daughter went and broke her foot Friday night and is in a cast. We already bought her a wheelchair and was curious how we'll get to universal. We are a group of 14 so we were going to do the taxi vans that can accommodate up to 7 per van.

She'll have crutches too so she won't need to stay in the wheelchair so my question is will we be able to fold up the wheelchair and transport it with us in the normal taxi vans without getting one of the wheelchair accessible vans that I've read are unreliable due to the fact that there's a limited number of them?

Yes. The wc just folds up and does not take up much spoace. It will easily fit in the back of the van.
