    Would I be able to request a microwave in the room I will be staying in. I have a 7 yr old child with autism & eye sensitivity in which I need to heat a certain medication at night before going to bed.

    Hello, and welcome to planDisney, Iiudmila!

    I am really happy to hear that you are planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort. As a fellow mother of an autistic young man who grew up visiting Walt Disney World Resort, I feel that I may understand your situation. 

    Iiudmila, if you have already booked your Disney Resort hotel, please contact the hotel and explain your situation and that you would greatly appreciate the use of a microwave oven in your room. My personal experience with this was that we had this special accommodation many times for my son’s treatments, but please note that it is not guaranteed, as policies may have changed so please be prepared. The best thing that you can do, is to explain the situation and ask Guest Services to make a notation on your Guest Room file. When you check into your Disney Resort hotel, kindly remind the Cast Member at the Front Desk that you have a special request on your Guest Room file, Cast Members are very understanding and they will try their best to find solutions.

    It would also be a good idea to request an accessible room, or to upgrade your Guest Room to a category called a Preferred Room, which places you closer to the main reception area and dining and the food court area has microwave ovens for use. You may also wish to look at a Deluxe Villas Resort hotel which has studios that offer kitchenettes, or accommodations with full kitchens. As well, Disney's Art of Animation and Disney's All-Star Music Resorts offer Family Suites with kitchenettes.

    In preparation for your visit, please look through Services for Guests with Disabilities with particular attention to Disney’s Disability Access Service (DAS). This accommodation will enable the registered DAS Guest to wait in a comfortable area, grab a bite to eat or relax until it’s time to ride. You will be able to register your child either in-person at any Guest Relations inside any Walt Disney World Resort theme park, or in advance of your arrival through a virtual chat online with DAS Advance anywhere from 2 days up to 30 days prior to your arrival.  

    You can also use the Disney Genie+ service along with the Disability Access Service (DAS). Please ensure you secure your Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservations in advance of your arrival.

    Best Disney Wishes - Jacqueline
