    We've been traveling to WDW since 1987 with a child with a wheelchair.
    WDW is mostly very accessible. If you see a seet of stairs, you will find a ramp nearby.
    There are quite a few rides where you need to transfer out of the wheelchair into the ride car, but when our daughter was less than 10, she was pretty easy to lift into most of the rides. Even if you can't lift your child out of the wheelchair, there are many attractions that don't require a transfer.

    If you check out the disABILITIES Board, you will find the disABILITIES FAQs thread near the top of the board. One of the posts in that thread has some links to past threads that might be helpful.
