It is revealed that the common factorial structures of limitation scale have five factors in accordance with FA results, whereas motivation factor has two dimensions. Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) is used to determine the effects of disabled individuals' motivation of participating in tourism actions. In the study, three different models are tested and are found to be significant. Separate dimensions are linked to both two factors to limitations motivation in tested models. Motivation as the third model is taken as a whole and its dimensions are linked to motivation latent variable. In either three models, it is found out that the limitations in disabled individuals increased while motivation increased.
