If two wheelchairs/ECV's meet in the road...who has the right of way?

This question has kind of been bugging me lately from the last trip I took to DL. It actually happened twice!

1st time, we were going down with the WC in the Space Mountain exit, and a double wide WC was coming up. We met about half way and around a corner so it wasn't like one could back up a little bit and let the other by. Since we were going downhill(like in a car I suppose) we let the other WC..the one going uphill have the right away, and we backed up to one of the side outlets for CM's only. This one I don't think could have been avoided...so that is fine.

2nd time...this one should have been avoided. Small World, our WC was coming off of the ride, and going uphill on the ramp, while another one was coming down the hill on the ramp...again met about halfway. The CM should have not let the other WC or other people come down the ramp until everyone was up from the last trip..but they did and we got stuck. These were two regular WC's not even a double wide... and well they just don't fit on that ramp. So I stood up using the handrail/fence... and the other person who happened to be very pregnant got up as well so we could kind fold up the wheelchairs and pass each other. Neither of us could back up b/c we both had a crowd of people behind us!

Just out of curiosity, what do you feel the WC/ECV etiquette should be when running into this kind of problem? Obviously, sometimes it can't be avoided, but once you are in it, how do you fix it????
If your heart is in your dreams, no request is too extreme, when you wish upon a star your dreams come true!

me on the way to DL...every time!
