Skyliner

    Aaron from CA Asked

    I'm planning a trip to WDW once Covid has settled down and a vaccine is available. I'm physically disabled (I use a wheelchair) and I'm also often a solo traveler. What resort(s) are good for solo travelers, pref. on monorail or skyliner?

    Hi, Aaron!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    During these unprecedented times, my memories of past Walt Disney World Resort vacations and my dreams of future visits have brought me so much happiness.  It sounds like you are also looking forward to a great, big, beautiful tomorrow when you will get to return to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort. 

    My son is on the autism spectrum and a few of my extended family members have mobility needs, so I can tell you from personal experience that Walt Disney World Resort goes above and beyond to meet the needs of Guests with disabilities.  While all Walt Disney World Resort Hotels offer transportation options that are accessible to Guests using wheelchairs or electric conveyance vehicles (ECV)/scooters,  I think you will definitely find that staying at a resort hotel with monorail or Disney Skyliner access will be your most convenient option.

    My mom uses an ECV when she visits Walt Disney World Resort, and she finds the monorail to be the easiest form of transportation to use.  She can drive her ECV directly into the monorail car and remain seated on the ECV for the duration of the ride.  Her favorite place to stay is Disney's Contemporary Resort, but Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort are also located along the monorail line.

    With the recent addition of the Disney Skyliner gondola system, transportation became even more convenient, not to mention more fun!  The Disney Skyliner services Disney's Riviera Resort, Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Pop Century  Resort, and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  While all of these resort hotels are wonderful, the tower studio rooms at Disney's Riviera Resort are perfect for solo travelers.

    Until you feel comfortable traveling again, be sure to check out #DisneyMagicMoments to bring a little pixie dust into your home.  Have a magical day!
