    Guest assitance Card => Hi, I am disabled with an electric chair and will be travelling with my husband & my 3 years old. If we go to a show, will we be able to remain together or I will have to be alone?? thanks ;)

    Hi Nadia,

    You will find that WDW is a great place for Guests with special needs to travel. 

    Your husband and 3 year old should be able to stay with you during most shows. There are some (i.e., Fantasmic! at Disney Hollywood Studios) that only allow one companion seat per Guest traveling in a wheelchair and other Guests are directed to nearby seating - usually directly in front of them. I think that in most of those cases, your husband should be able to sit next to you and hold your 3 year in his lap so that you can all enjoy the performance as a family.

    There is a section on the WDW website devoted to Guests with Disabilities that includes a section specifically for Guests with mobility issues that you might find helpful.  Also be sure to pick up a Guide Map for Guests with Disabilities available at each park.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
