    Hello Donna!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having a magical week!

    Walt Disney World has made navigating the parks and attractions as smooth as possible for guests in wheelchairs or with a variety of disabilities. They have a newish system in place that makes things even easier in my opinion.

    I would suggest heading in to Guest Relations once in the parks and talking to cast member to best decide what would help your specific situation. The cast members are trained to give great information and can provide special maps and accommodations as needed.

    This Disability Access Service Card allows guests with mobility issues to enter attractions through an alternate entrance for wheelchairs and still enjoy the magic. You may be given one of these cards or simply shown which attractions have these alternate entrances.

    Please let me know if you need anything else as you plan this magical visit!

    See you real soon!
