Going to an amusement park can be a lot of fun. However, if you have a mobility issue, then you are probably not looking forward to going to the amusement park since it can be a lot of time walking and standing. However, if you really want to go to the amusement park, there are things that you can do that will help you make the trip easier and help you enjoy the trip. 

Rent a Wheelchair

If you don't have a wheelchair that you use all the time, you may want to rent one from the amusement park. They will generally have power chairs or scooters that you can rent to use while you are at the park. There are a lot of reasons to rent your chair from the park if you don't use one all the time. One is that you won't have to worry about getting your chair to and from the park. If you don't have a chair at all, renting a power chair or scooter from the park, like a Disneyland powerchair rental, will mean that no one is going to get tired while they are pushing you around the park. The rental fees are generally nominal and charge by the day. You should also call the park ahead of time and reserve a chair so that you know you will have one when you get to the park. 

Disability Passes

Most parks will have some kind of disability pass that you can take advantage of. Those passes will let you get on a ride without having to wait in the long line. You aren't really going to bypass entire line of people waiting, but it will let you more or less set an appointment for the ride, equal to the time that the waiting time currently is. So, if the line for the ride is 45 minutes long, you can go and show your disability pass and set it up so that you can come back in 45 minutes to ride. You will generally need to show a doctor's note to show that you are disabled, and the note will need to show your doctor's name and address, so having something written on their stationary will help. 

If you have mobility issues and you want to go to an amusement park, there are things that you can do that will make your trip easier on you and your group.
