    Hi everyone! I'm Meaghan, a 27 year old wheelchair user living in Maine. I've been to Disney 3 times prior but never as the planner. My boyfriend is originally from Florida (Tampa area) but moved here last year, and has NEVER been to Disney!

    As an electric wheelchair user I have flown 20+ times but always with my family, including my father who's mechanically inclined and a great problem solver. When things went wrong with the way airlines handled my wheelchair I was usually left out of the resolution loop. I'm nervous (but excited) to take on the air travel and Disney for the first time as an adult.

    I'm trying to take the advice to not plan too much, but I've gotten so hooked to the planning process and the world of other Disney lovers. I've been listening to the DISUnplugged podcast all day every day at work and I'm excited to see all the changes to Disney since I last visited in 2011!

    Hi, Meaghan, and welcome to the DIS. Planning can be almost as fun as going, which is why this website can be addictive!

    I will recommend to you the DIS abilities board where you can likely find tips about transporting your wheelchair and using it in the parks. https://www.disboards.com/forums/disabilities.20/

    Also, of course for WDW THe Theme Parkas, Attractions, and Strategies board is the main section for general questions. https://www.disboards.com/forums/theme-parks-attractions-and-strategies.2/

    If you have questions, just ask. Have fun planning and :welcome: to the DIS!
