I'll be in Disneyland next week, and due to a torn meniscus in my knee, it looks like I'll be using an ECV for a good portion, maybe all, of the trip. My physical therapist was encouraging today about my progress, but we don't think I have a prayer of being able to stand/walk for 10-12 hours a day for 4 days straight. Therefore, I'm renting an ECV from Deckerts. I have so many questions! 1. I can slowly walk (or maybe use a cane or crutch) for short distances or times, so I may want to park my ECV to shop or use the regular lines at times. It seems some lines might just be easier to deal with on foot. I'm thinking that's out of the question for queues like Splash due to the queue length and many stairs. Are there other queues to definitely avoid on foot, e.g. Big Thunder Mountain? I can't remember if that has stairs or not? What about Space Mountain? I hear the loading situation is a pain there (is it really bad?) if you have an ECV, so am I better off managing that line on foot, or is it a long and cumbersome queue? It's been many years since I've been to Disneyland and I just don't remember what queues have stairs or are otherwise unwieldy. 2. I'm using RideMax to help create at least a general plan, but that assumes you're using normal queues. Any tips on how an ECV would change my plans? Do you still use Fast Passes for the queues that have separate entrances, e.g. Splash? 3. We're booked for the Holiday Tour, but now I'm really concerned about whether I'll slow down the rest of the tour group! What happens if when it's time for the train, the next train doesn't take ECVs? The Haunted Mansion line sounds complicated with ECVs, and I'd be willing to park it and do the regular line with everyone else, but I walk s-l-o-w-l-y and am concerned about holding up the group. I guess I'll talk with my tour guide about the best way to handle all this, but I'm curious if anyone else has done this tour with an ECV and what their experience was. 4. I hear the handicapped viewing for Fantasmic! is really bad, with parts of the show completely blocked. Is it really all that bad? I'd consider parking my ECV nearby and walking to a better viewing area, but I can't sit cross legged or with my knees twisted, so a long sit would be difficult, and standing in one place for a long wait would be hard as well. We do have premium seating booked on Friday at 9PM, but it looks like rain that night so it might get cancelled, and I thought it might be good to try to catch the show on Wed or Thur from elsewhere so as not to miss out if we're rained out on Friday. 5. Speaking of rain... any special tips for handling an ECV in the rain? Is it easy to use an umbrella with an ECV, or would that just turn me into an unwieldy weapon? 6. If we do early entry at rope drop, do we have a prayer at being among the first to Peter Pan or Nemo, or should I just relax and bag that idea altogether? I'm unsure of what it's like in an ECV in a rushing crowd. 7. Speaking of Nemo, how steep are the stairs and how many are there? I can handle a few stairs, but only carefully and slowly, and I'm very concerned about holding up a line. 8. Any tips or things to avoid when finding an area to view fireworks? 9. If I bring a cane or a crutch, is it easy to carry on the ECV? Again, I don't want to become an unwieldy weapon. Also, are seat canes allowed in the parks? Thanks so much for any words of wisdom!
