Best Rose Parade tour company for mobility challenged

I would love to see the Rose Parade but am mobility challenged - use a rollator for walking and can climb only very few stairs. Is there a tour company that can accomodate these needs while still providing a great experience. The amount of walking needs to be minimized as well as stairs eliminated or minimized greatly. I am interested in a multi-day package as I will be flying in.

I am not familiar with the tour companies, as I live in Pasadena. However, I know that the Tournament of Roses organization has some multi-day tours. They seem to be sold out for 2014, but there is a waiting list. You might want to contact them to see if their tour can accomodate your needs.


I don't know about any other tours, and haven't read any trip reports about them.

I have a better idea. Did you know that the night before the parade, you can view it UP CLOSE and with hardly any crowds?

It would be late at night, but if you are up for it, you can stroll along the parked floats around 1 am the morning, when the cities are lining their floats up. You can get inches from them, and there's not a ton of people out there. REALLY NEAT! I had no idea you could do this. They line up on Orange Grove, just south of Colorado. There is no charge.
