    I'm excited to see that Walt's Main Street Story tour is open to kids under 16! My child can walk for short times but also has accessibility needs. Can we use her stroller on Main Street & leave it parked to go into Walt's apartment?

    Hello there, Amanda!

    I'm always so excited to help a fellow Amanda, thank you so much for your question!

    Oh my goodness, you are going to love Walt's Main Street Story Tour. Disney history is a passion of mine, and that's exactly what this tour is all about! You are welcome to use your own stroller or mobility aid for the part of the tour that takes place on Main Street, U.S.A. When it's time to visit Walt's apartment you'll have the option of having your child walk with you or transfer to a complimentary wheelchair so that you can both enjoy this cozy, rarely-seen corner of Disneyland Park.

    It's a good idea to make a note of your accessibility needs when you're making your tour reservations. Reservations typically open 60 days in advance, and the process is pretty simple!

    • Visit the booking page for Walt's Main Street Story Tour
    • Select the date you wish to take the tour
    • Enter the number of guests for the tour
    • Choose an available time for your group
    • Click "Continue"
    • Enter the names of your guests and add any special requests
    • Click "Next" to enter your payment information and complete your reservation
    While you're entering the names of your guests I would recommend clicking the "Add Special Requests" text and then checking the wheelchair accessibility box on the pop-up that appears. That way they'll be prepared just in case your child wants a wheelchair for the apartment section of the tour.

    Guests are asked to check in for the tour at least 15 minutes early at the Tour Gardens on Main Street, U.S.A. In your case, you may want to go just a few minutes earlier than that to discuss any mobility questions with your tour guide. Make sure everyone has had a snack and visited the restroom first, so you don't have to miss a single moment of your tour!

    I was able to visit Walt's apartment last year and I have to say that it was a truly touching experience. I couldn't help but imagine what Walt himself thought when he used to watch the crowds outside his window, enjoying the park he had worked so hard to create. The apartment itself has been wonderfully appointed, giving guests a unique glimpse into what it was like when Walt and his family used this sweet little space.

    While you won't be able to take photos yourself, there will be Disney PhotoPass Photographers ready to take pictures for you (and the digital downloads are included in your tour). The only thing I would recommend bringing is a tissue or two, for any pixie dust that gets in your eyes.

    Can we do a little research together before your trip? The Disney Parks Blog has shared some really cool things about Walt's apartment over the years!

    Amanda, I'm so glad you'll be taking the time in your busy park day to enjoy this unique piece of Disney history. I hope it's an unforgettable experience for you and your kiddo!

    Keep moving forward (as Walt would say)!
