    I have a child that is trach/vent dependent and prior to his birth we were doing trips with his older siblings. I’m having trouble finding any info on how accessible Disneyland is for a stroller bound child who is dependent on their ventilator.

    Hiya, Barbara!

    Welcome BACK to planDisney! You have definitely EARned the 'Super Planner Badge' for this visit to Mickey's house. We love that you're covering all of your bases ahead of your trip, and my team and I are having a great time helping you along the way!

    I did a bit of resEARch, and if your child's ventilator is pretty well contained in or under their stroller or wheelchair, it seems like your Mouseketeer will be able to enjoy all of the stops listed under the 'May Remain in Wheelchair or ECV to Ride Attraction' category of the Mobility Disabilities guide found hEAR. There's also a section that says 'depending on the size of the mobility device, guests may be allowed to remain in their wheelchair or ECV' which I would also think would include your stroller serving as a wheelchair.  The rest of the list is all of the attractions that would require transferring to the ride vehicle; if your child can move between their special carriage and the ride vehicle, and the ventilator, as well as any additional gEAR (oxygen tank, etc), is pretty well contained, they might even be able to enjoy larger attractions that don't require restraint devices, like slow-moving boat rides and ride vehicles that have generic lap bars.

    You'll for sure want to double-check with the Cast Members outside of each attraction, as well as with the Disability Access Service, also known as DAS. In fact, you might still have time to message them from home before your visit with any specific attraction questions you may already have. They can be reached at (407) 560-2547 or And you're also more than welcome to reach out to the Guest Relations team through your Disney days.

    I hope that this answer helped to give you a bit more hope, Barbara. Be sure to follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort planning questions, We're All Ears!
