    Hi Connie!  I am sure you and your four year old are getting more and more excited about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World!  I am sure you will find it as magical as ever for you both!

    To ease your apprehensions about the various rides and attractions you can find excellent information in the book, Passporter's Open Mouse for Walt Disney World by Deb Wills and Debra Martin Koma.  This book can be found at most major bookstores or at  It is a great resource book for anyone with special needs or unique problems.  It will take you through each ride and attraction for all the parks with descriptions of the vehicles and the set up for loading and unloading etc.  This book offers the most comprehensive descriptions over any other information I have found.  It will also include a section on resorts and beds and amenities for those that have special needs.

    Also click HERE to see the page on the website which will include contact information if you have further questions.

    When you arrive at each park you might also want to stop in at Guest Relations to see if there are any changes that have taken place with any of the attractions.  If you have further questions the cast members here will be more then helpful in keeping you at ease for your magical vacation!
