Disney World visitors in wheelchairs now getting to enjoy all of the Haunted Mansion

I have two items of good news for Disney World fans who are in wheelchairs.

Haunted Mansion is letting people in wheelchairs go to the stretching room; before, wheelchairs entered directly through the exit. Now, they can experience the interactive queue and the famous room. When exiting the stretching room, a cast member will open a door that takes you to the ride’s exit. It was the first time that I go to that room since I was body-abled in the 90s.

The other good news is a tip that I got from a blogger who is in a wheelchair and who writes about Disney World for people with disabilities. Test Track is very difficult to transfer because the vehicle’s seats are lower in height than the loading platform. But if you ask a cast member to let you transfer in the seat belt checking area, the vehicle will be at your same height. I really have to thank Melissa Knight for this and many other interesting tips.
