    We booked our Oct WDW trip today for 2 different Resort Hotels. My husband is in a wheelchair, and we have booked accessible rooms with roll in showers at the Grand Floridian and at Port Orleans Riverside. Do the showers have a seat?

    Hi there, Wendy! Welcome to planDisney!

    The fall is a beautiful time to visit Walt Disney World Resort.  The weather isn't quite at hot as in the summer months but the days are still full of sunshine and you'll be visiting during the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and you'll get to see all of the Halloween and other fall decorations that Disney is known for during this season!

    It sounds like you and your party are ready for a truly magical vacation with your choices of Disney Resorts Collection hotels!  I've never had the opportunity to stay at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa but it is most certainly on my bucket list!  Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside has been a staple of my family's visits for years, and the delicious smell of the flowers that are blooming all throughout the Resort always brings me right back to my happiest moments. Make sure to take a stroll over to Disney's Port Orleans - French Quarter for some delicious Mickey-shaped beignets at Scat Cat's Club - Cafe!

    We know that Walt Disney World Resort always does its very best to accommodate all of its Guests and their specific needs.  I feel like they really go above and beyond to make every Guest's vacation a magical one.  While the roll-in showers in these Resorts may not all have built-in seats, many do, and all Resorts can provide a shower chair upon request.  You are certainly welcome to add this request to your Guest room reservation even before you leave home by calling the Disney Resorts Hotel Reservations line at (407) 939-1936 or by simply speaking with a Cast Member at the Front Desk upon your arrival to each Resort.  

    Did you know there is even a page on the Walt Disney World website that gives much more information for Guests with Mobility Disabilities?  If your husband is planning to ride some of his favorite attractions but you're not sure if they're accessible or if you would like any more information about wheelchair access on the Resort's transportation options, this is a great place to start.  Of course, feel free to come back and see us here at planDisney if you have any other questions.  We would love to help!

When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
