Disney Day #22

I arrived at the Magic Kingdom at the park opening. Easy and smooth entry and then I headed right to the scooter rental area. I have never rented an electric scooter before and the cast member was great about explaining everything to me. It was actually pretty easy.

It was such a life saver. I still had to modify my touring a bit as some of the attractions do not accommodate an electric scooter in the queue. For rides like Winnie the Pooh or Peter Pan, you have to park the scooter outside and then walk through the line which today was very short and manageable for me. For other attractions, like the Haunted Mansion, you need to transfer to a wheelchair (provided by a cast member) and then use the wheelchair to go through the queue or walk through the queue. As I did not have anyone with me to push a wheelchair and I didn’t think that I could manage it on my own, I did skip those attractions.

But it was all good. You can take the scooter right into shows, such as Country Bears, Carousel of Progress and Tiki Birds, so I was able to do all of those. The queue for Seven Dwarves Mine Train also accommodates the scooter so I was able to ride twice with a 30 minute wait because I could stay in the scooter for the line.

I really ended up doing many rides, some twice, and all of the shows. The scooter was also a built in sitting area so I was able to get a drink and move into quiet areas in the shade.

I caught all of the mini parade cavalcades which were fun to see! I had a late lunch so just grabbed some cookies to take back to the room for later.

I stayed until the park was closed. I was sad to leave my scooter and limp to the bus but it was a great day.

Here is a video of the day:

I grew up with a love for all things Disney. I have been fortunate enough to travel to Walt Disney World, Disneyland, with Disney Cruise Line and with Adventures by Disney. Visiting all the world wide parks is on my bucket list!
