    This applies everywhere in the world, not just at Disney World.

    Trying to start a car, you can damage the wheelchair batteries especially gel batteries or batteries smaller than car batteries.

    If you wear down the battery trying to start a car, the weakened battery can cause the wheelchair motors to overheat.

    Well I suppose you can jump start your own car if you know what you are doing and you are headed home where someone else can roll your chair into the house if the battery is dead.

    Your wheelchair is part of you. If some stranger drags you and your chair to his car, that is assault and battery (no pun intended).

    By the way it is rude for someone to lean on your wheelchair too. Just like leaning on someone's shoulder.
