    Hello, I have a large family that will include 7 adults and 2 year old. Do you have properties that include wheelchair-accessible rooms? Where would they be?

    Hey Howdy Hey Patricia and welcome to planDisney!

    I am so excited that you will be planning your vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth and bringing the whole family! One of the best parts about a trip to Walt Disney World Resort is the consideration of many in the family when it comes to accommodations and that includes wheelchair accessibility. Thank you so much for your question and let's get into the details to get your specific needs met with your room amenities. 

    It is with great joy that I can share with you that all Disney Resort Collection accommodations have wheelchair-accessible rooms. The tricky part is knowing how to find them. When you are searching through the many resorts Disney has available online, you will plug in your information towards the top such as the number of guests and ages as well as dates. Before you hit the "Find Resort" button, make sure to check the box titled "Accessible Rooms". After you check the box and then hit the "Find Resort" button, you should be given all the resorts which offer accessible rooms and once you click on the resort you are looking for, you should see the specifics when it comes to room amenities. Make sure to read through all of the room offerings in the resort as there can subtle differences from one to the next such as bathroom accessibility. 

    If you do foresee issues waiting in lines, you also have the option to apply for Disney's Disability Access Service (DAS). With this service, you can book attractions throughout the park from your My Disney Experience and enter the virtual line. This will secure your spot in the line but allow you to wait elsewhere for your convenience. Once it is time to return, you will check in with the greeting Cast Member and then be given access to the ride with a reduced wait time. You can choose to register virtually before leaving which will give you access to DAS Advanced Planning which will give you the ability to book two attraction experience arrival windows before you get into the park. You will also have a rolling one window to book after you redeem your prior reservation window. 

    To prepare for your trip and navigate the parks with concerns with mobility issues, Disney also has this covered. Disney has online access and information on transfer requirements and such for all attractions throughout the parks. You should have plenty of information on what to expect when it comes to a trip to Walt Disney World that hopefully, you feel comfortable making the trip! 

    I hope this information helped get your planning together to make the trip to the Vacation Kingdom of the World! Disney is a place where everyone should have the ability to share the Magic with the whole family no matter their mobility status. Please let us know if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
