    Hi, we are looking forward to visiting Disney World next month. My wife is disabled and has a UK Blue Badge parking permit. Is this sufficient to gain access to the accessible parking area or do I need to apply for a US permit? Thank you

    Hello Gary,

    It is good to see you again here at planDisney! You must be thrilled that your Walt Disney World Resort holiday is just a short time away.

    You will be glad to know that parking for Guests with disabilities is available throughout Walt Disney World Resort and you may use your wife’s UK disabled blue driving badge to access these parking areas. Simply follow the appropriate directional signs and have the permit visible so the Cast Members can assist you accordingly.  If you have any questions, you may ask a Cast Member at the Auto Plaza as you enter the parking lot of each theme park. Remember, standard theme park parking rates apply for Guests not staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel.

    Gary, you may also find a wealth of information about navigating Walt Disney World Services for Guests with Disabilities on the website. There is a wide array of ways that Disney strives to create an inclusive and welcoming environment in the resort hotels and theme parks for every Guest.  I hope this will help you and your wife enjoy every moment of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Gary, I’m so glad you will visit before the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival wraps up for this year! I hope that you and your wife spend some time exploring this gorgeous festival. The Character topiaries are stunning and make a perfect photo-op. Special Outdoor Kitchens offer some of the freshest and most creative dining and beverage options you can imagine. I recommend downloading the special planDisney Podcast, MUST KNOW Tips & Tricks For EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival, and listening to it as you travel!

    If you have any other questions or would like some advice about your Walt Disney World Resort holiday, please let us know; we will gladly assist you!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
