For the rides with a wheelchair car, the CMs will manouver a manual wheelchair onto the ride car if the guest in the wheelchair can't do it. Often, the other passengers need to enter the ride car first and the wheelchair is loaded last. So, the only person left to put it on is the CM. For the rare one where you would need to push it on, the CM will tell you just what to do.

For rides that don't have a wheelchair accessible car, the guest/companion needs to manouver the wheelchair. Some guests need the wheelchair almost touching the ride car, some will need it farther away, some want it parked right next to the ride car facing in the same direction, while some might want to park it at a 90 degree angle. Since the CMs don't know how each guest needs it placed for boarding, the guest needs to put it where they need it. After the guest has boarded, the CM will move it out of the way.

Hi Jacob, thank you so much for reading our report. We really did enjoy SWW and will be going back. I think you will really like Pop, it was fun every time we went there.

Congrats a million times over on the weight loss - it's hard to lose 1 pound, much less 50! You look fabulous and are an inspiration!

Take care and have a great trip in October! I will be going in October as well but the 9 - 13th!

Thanks again for a great TR!

Hi Sara!! I think you would have a great time at SWW. Thank you so much for your sweet words, I am really trying to get more healthy! Have a great time in October too.

Thanks Jen!! I didn't not like the Tiki Room, but didn't love it either, I am glad we went though. I did love the Haunted Mansion, I can't wait to ride that again because I was more worried about Bill instead of paying attention to the ride . I can't wait to get back, 94 days .

Thanks for this trip report

Thanks for this very detailed report and all the pictures. It has been great getting to know you and Bill through this report.

We are making our first trip back to WDW in 9 years. My son who will be 11 years old when we make the trip at the end of next June has Cerebral Palsy. He can walk short distances with foot and ankle orthotics, but is in the process of getting a power chair. We have been a little bit apprehensive about making the trip to WDW with what will be his new power chair. This board and your trip report, along with all the pictures have allayed many of our fears.

We have a room booked at Wilderness Lodge, 6/19-6/26, but I am still concerned about the amount of space in the room and if his Power Chair will fit. I just booked a typical room without Handicap Access, as I thought he could get out of the chair and walk around the room, but now I am concerned if there will be enough space for all three of us, our luggage and his chair. We were also contemplating bringing his manual chair incase there was an issue with the power chair. Is this overkill?

John
