Finding Future World – An Introduction

As a child, I had the benefit of growing up near Walt Disney World. Cinderella’s Castle and Spaceship Earth became common sights as I was lucky enough to enjoy the benefits of being a seasonal passholder.

Accessibility at Walt Disney World – Epcot

Getting around Walt Disney World in a wheelchair is a unique experience. If you’re like me, and only had to be in a wheelchair due to injury, or if you sport wheels all year long, accessibility is definitely a question you may have when it comes to many of the rides there.

#1- Ellen’s Energy Adventure

This 45 minute Future World ride is accessible by wheelchair. At the back of each ride vehicle is a special compartment. A cast member will lower the ramp and get you situated. Other party members may join you in the back row of the vehicle by going around. If you have a backpack or anything slung over the back of your chair, they will have you remove it to close the door. When the ride is over, a cast member will once again open the ramp and walk you backwards. All in all, I felt very secure riding in this car.

Our accessibility score: 5/5
