Wheelchairs

I know this has probably been asked a dozen times, but does Disneyland rent wheelchairs or do we need to find a place to get one before the trip. I think my grandma will need one for our trip in June.

You can rent at the parks Services & Amenities | Disneyland Resort

or you can rent length of stay chairs from local vendors. Here are a couple of sites: Scooter Rentals Anaheim - Wheelchairs, Powerchairs, ECVs at Disneyland in California

Be aware that the parks have very limited supplies, and could run out at any moment. If you will absolutely need a wheelchair, your best bet is to rent one ahead of time, for the duration of your stay.

Do you have someone pretty sturdy and in good shape to push a wheelchair? There is a knack to it that takes some time to catch on to. Pushing someone in a chair, especially a large person, gets very tiring, too.

If your grandmother can handle a scooter, I'd recommend renting one of those instead. She will feel much more independent, and no one else will get worn out pushing a wheelchair.

With the Disney wheelchairs, they can be only used between the two parks. Disney wheelchairs cannot be taken into downtown Disney. if you need a chair to get from the transportation or a hotel, I would rent from an outside source.
