    Hello! I am bringing my parents to see Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom for the first time. They have trouble standing for long periods of time and was wondering if there is a disability section where there is seating and if so how early should we go?

    Hi Samantha!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for stopping by with such a great question!

    Planning a multi-generational trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is so exciting. There is so much to do throughout all of the Theme Parks for Guests of all ages. To reduce wait times, make sure to take advantage of FastPass+. FastPass+ plans can be made 30 days in advance of your visit if you are staying outside of the Walt Disney World Resort or 60 days prior to check-in if staying at a Walt Disney World Resort.
    Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom Park is one of my favorite nighttime shows. The music is spectacular, and the projections are out of this world. One of my favorite ways to enjoy this show is with the Fireworks Dessert Party. Reservations are highly recommended.

    There are many Services for Guests with Disabilities or those who may need special accommodations. Since your parents have difficulty standing for long periods, I suggest that on the first day that you visit one of the Theme Parks, you stop by any Guest Relations with your parents. Your parents can explain their specific situations, and the Cast Member assisting them can help to provide individual assistance.

    I hope that you and your family make memories to last a lifetime!
