    Are the handicap rooms with 2 double beds and roll-in shower larger than a standard room and would we have to pay more for a handicap room? Also are there any connecting standard rooms to a handicap room?

    Hi Myra,

    Walt Disney World does a great job of accommodating guests with disabilities in its theme parks, resorts, transportation and restaurants. While I have little personal experience with the accessible rooms at the resorts beyond once staying in an accessible room at Pop Century, I will try to point you to the best place to get the information you need.

    To see which resorts have accessible rooms available on your dates of travel, check the "Accessible Rooms" box next to the date and number of guests on the resort search page.

    The size and layout -- and availability of connecting rooms -- will vary by resort. To get the best assessment of your options, I would call the resort you are interested in directly and ask to speak with someone familiar with the accessible rooms at that resort. You will find the direct numbers each resort's overview page of the Walt Disney World website. 

    Or you can call the main resort reservation number and ask to speak to a cast member with knowledge of accessible accommodations. That number is (407) 939-1936.

    I'm sorry to send you elsewhere, but I think you will get the best information with a direct conversation.

    As you make the rest of your plans, you might find this site for guests with disabilities helpful as well. It includes links to printable guides for each of the four theme parks, details of the Disability Access Service and more.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Myra. I hope this helps a little as you make your plans. Enjoy!
