    Hello moms, my family and I will be taking the dream cruise in July. Are carts/strollers available? I will be traveling with my son who has down symdrome and is autistic. He turns 8 in May, in the body of a 4 year old but the mind of a 1 year old.

    Hi there, Amy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to hEAR that you have a Disney Cruise Line vacation on your calendar for this summer!  So much magic awaits you onboard and I am so excited for you to experience everything that makes a Disney Cruise Line vacation so wonderful!  Being able to create lasting memories with your son will be so very special and Disney Cruise Line does an incredible job of making it a magical experience for every single Guest.

    Disney Cruise Line does have some onboard strollers available, but they are on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you are interested in one, you will need to check with Guest Services once onboard and there is a fully-refundable deposit required for use of the strollers while onboard.  If you have a stroller that your son is comfortable in and that is easy to travel with, I would highly recommend bringing it to ensure that you do have one and to also make it a comfortable experience for him.  Umbrella sized strollers are perfect for stowing away under the bed in your stateroom when not in use and larger ones can usually be tucked away into a corner of the stateroom.  When you visit Castaway Cay, there are complimentary wagons and jogging-type strollers available for use on the island, again on a first-come, first-served basis.  

    If you have any other special needs such as dietary needs or special requests, please contact Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 and they can note your reservation with your request in efforts to make your vacation as magical as possible.

    Happy Sailing!
